Life in Dallas - Ft. Worth
When asked about living in Dallas after having spent years in New York, essayist Sarah Hepola responded,
“The greatness of the city just require[s] a little digging.”
Whether or not you’ve spent time in North Texas, you may be familiar with the perception that the Dallas-Ft. Worth area caters to a singular suburban demographic. But, whether in “the craft boutiques of Oak Cliff and the quirky coffeehouses of [the] Lakewood neighborhood and while strolling the curbless streets of Little Forest Hills,” it becomes clear that the appeal of this unique North Texas area is far more universal than stereotypes may suggest.

The perhaps surprisingly diverse makeup of Dallas includes the largest Jewish community in the state of Texas. The city is 25% African-American, and 42.4% of the population is derived from Hispanic or Latino origins. There is also a large and active LGBT community, and the city is home to many religious faiths. Dallas also is home to the largest urban arts district in the U.S, one that includes the Winspear Opera House and the Dallas Museum of Art. The city of Ft. Worth is also home to the Kimbell, rated the number 3 museum in the world for classic art.
Though there may be some competition between the cities of Dallas and Ft. Worth, it’s clear that, as a whole, this region of north Texas boasts a thriving arts culture that has been embraced by residents as well as tourists to the area.
