    • Needing name of a store in Gruene

      Gruene Dec 3, 2014 at 8:39 AM

      Hoping someone can help me with the name of a store located on Gruene Road. It is one of the last stores, if not the last, on the right if you are going towards New Braunsfel, the same side as Gruene Hall. It has very eclectic metal art, signs, etc.; and I recall a wall of very inexpensive jewelry.
      Thank you!

    • Dallas Neighborhood: Is Park Row a decent place to live?

      by mochibear Online Now Oct 28, 2014 at 1:23 PM

      Hello, I am in need of some well thought out answers!

      A little back story...
      I am moving from Los Angeles to Dallas with my fiancé. We're aware that the upscale neighborhoods more central to Dallas are University Park and Highland Park, but unfortunately the homes there are out of our budget. We've explored surrounding suburbs, but we live in a very central location now so I'm used to city living. I also really loathe driving longer than 20 minutes :)
      I need to know if it is TRULY the case that anything south of the city center is unsafe. I get the impression that some of these opinions have to do with race, and possibly the fact that some may have a different mentality of what makes them feel unsafe or uncomfortable. The way some speak about this place reminds me of how people here in LA talk about Compton, which really is known by ALL as a scary place that I would never under any circumstances visit. Is this area of Dallas really as bad as they make it sound?

      I currently live in the Miracle Mile/Hancock Park area of LA. There's a combination of apartments, multi-million dollar homes, and shopping. Here, if you go a few blocks east or south and it can get less desirable. Even still, in this sought after neighborhood, I see just as many homeless people sleeping on bus stop benches or collecting recyclables in their carts. One of the residents in the apartment complex we currently live in is suspected of dealing drugs. Plenty of other undesirable things happen here that come with living in a central part of town. This doesn't make me feel is just a part of city life.

      We have our eyes locked on a lovely historical house, in the South Blvd/Park Row neighborhood just East of the 45 and South of the 30 Freeway. I believe It's near the Forest Theater. Every home in this neighborhood looks well kept with nicely manicured lawns and landscaping. It shows the neighborhood crime rate as low on Trulia, but with a higher crime rate in the surrounding areas. Is it considered up and coming?

      We will most likely be doing our shopping in Highland/University Park because that's where the Trader Joe's is and is of course, the nicer part of town. But I wouldn't mind living in a cheaper area that is up and coming, if that is the case. Also, does anyone know about the resale value of these homes?

      Any and all information will help. Please give answers based on facts and not race please! I've read some unfriendly posts regarding race in certain areas and that's just not how I base my opinions of safe/unsafe neighborhoods.

      Thanks, everyone! :)

    • Heading toDallas next April, where should I stay???

      by jmenard111 Online Now Jun 26, 2014 at 8:14 AM

      I am heading to Dallas in April for a girls weekend. We will be attending the ACM's 50th Anniversary Show at the Cowboy's Stadium. We are wondering where the best place to stay is? We are all in our mid/late 20's. Looking for an area close to some good night life and safe enough to walk around. We have our own vehicle so transportation to and from the stadium is not an issue for us. Should we stay right in Arlington near the stadium or closer to downtown Dallas? Thanks for any help!!!

    • DART Orange Line expansion to DFW Airport

      by Jericho-79 Online Now May 18, 2014 at 1:42 AM

      Hey Metroplex residents. Two years ago I relocated from Fort Worth to New Jersey. The last time I was in the Dallas area, I couldn't get anywhere without a car. And while living in Fort Worth, I never discovered the DART light rail.

      This October I'm traveling back to Dallas for an event at the American Airlines Center. I know for a fact that the DART light rail can take you right to the arena. Also, I found out that the DART Orange Line will be extended all the way to DFW Airport come August.

      Currently, I plan to fly into DFW Airport and stay at the Hyatt Regency on airport property. I could then ride the DART Orange Line from DFW Airport to the American Airlines Center, and from the arena back to the airport.

      Since I do not wish to rent a car, I figure that taking advantage of the DART Orange Line would be my best option.

      Could I rely on the DART Orange Line to get me from DFW Airport to the American Airlines Center, and vice versa?

      Will I still need a rental car even with this upcoming extension of the DART Orange Line to DFW Airport?

      My two brothers, my father and I will be visiting the Dallas area this coming June for a long weekend. We will be catching a few baseball games and are wondering what is the best location to stay for tourist attractions. We will have a car to get to the ballpark so we are more concerned with staying in a good location in terms of tourist attractions, good atmosphere, and getting the best overall feel for Texas. After doing some research I'm kind of confused if I should be looking just right in downtown Dallas, or if something like Market Place or West End is better? Thanks for the help!

So NOW MY QUESTION... What time does the traffic usually begin to back up on 121 on monday morning?

      Less than one and a half hour between flights, is that enough?

      by christine.j Online Now Oct 21, 2012 at 3:07 AM

      This week we're going to book our flights for next year's visit in California and one connection looks very good. It's a British Airways/American Airlines flight with a change of planes in Dallas. But there are only 85 minutes to do this. The flights will be on one ticket, but with customs being done in the first port of entry in the USA, we'll have to go through passport control, get our luggage, go through customs and check in again for the connecting flight. Do you think this can be done in just 85 minutes if our incoming flight is on time?
      It looks very tight to me.
