Making Dallas Even Better

  • RAB

    Fun to read again. Funny all over again.

  • Dan Koller

    This is still one of my favorite things ever published in D Magazine.

  • Tim Rogers

    Brian Smith deserves much of the credit. I handed him a pretty convoluted, crazy-ass sketch. He found a way to make sense of it and designed that page so that it could actually be read.

  • D Magnanimous

    Man, I love this even more the second time seeing it. By the way, why isn’t Preston Hollow on this chart? Second, where does Preston Hollow officially start or end?

  • Tim Rogers

    Great question. I recall having a conversation about Preston Hollow. I can’t recall how that conversation went. If I had to guess, it went like this: Preston Hollow is too close to Highland Park, in terms of stereotypes. And there’s not enough room to put another neighborhood on the page.

  • Alexander Muse

    Preston Hollow really needs to be there… Very different story than Park Cities…

  • RAB

    As I recall, the crazy-ass sketch was created at the back table at the Old Monk, which might also explain why your recollection of conversations concerning Preston Hollow are somewhat impaired.

  • Dan Koller

    Preston Hollow = North Dallas = Preston Hollow, for the purposes of this map.

  • Peter Kurilecz

    I notice nothing south of the Park Cities

  • Peter Kurilecz

    Preston Hollow = between Northwest Highway, Walnut Hill, Inwood and Thackeray

  • Tim Rogers

    You recall correctly. And thank you for your contributions, too.

  • mr_lakewood

    Um, I don’t know anyone in Lakewood who would rather live in the Park Cities…

  • RAB

    South of Park Cities is what you see from the plane as you’re flying to Cabo. Not sure what it’s called.

  • Todd Pettit

    Um….@ Mr. Lakewood…that’s not what the map says. It says that Lakewood says that it kills UP that they don’t l live in HP. However, studies have shown that 97% of the jackwagons wearing a Fakewood Country Club hat are in fact “killed” by the fact that they don’t live in either UP or HP.

  • Mr. Vic Place

    Um….@mr_Lakewood…..that’s not what the map says. It says that East Dallas (Lakewood for our purposes) believes that it kills UP that they don’t live in HP. However studies have shown that 97% of the jackwagons wearing a Fakewood Country Club hat are in fact “killed” by the fact that that they don’t live in UP OR HP.

    UP and HP need their own maps, They each have areas with Large estates and tiny houses packed tightly together. The only real difference is that UP is more laid back ๐Ÿ˜€
