The Big D Part I - History & Downtown

I had some business this Friday in Dallas, so my wife and I went up on Thursday to check out the Big D. This was actually my first time to walk around Dallas' DT. We loved it. Hope you enjoy our walking tour.





Daley Plaza:





Book Depository:




The Grassy Knoll:

View from area of kennedy's car to the Book Depository:

On to my wife's and my walking tour of DT:



























Hey, now that's a good looking woman:











Niemans:


My wife and I messing around with interactive visual art:














There's that beauty again; she must be following me:

















Part II - The rest of the walking tour, Victory, and a big Dick visits Dallas.
Adios

Excellent work.
Good to get an outsider's perspective on downtown Big D!
Thanks for posting.

I love the structure in the second photo.
Is it a city building?

That is the 'Old Red' courthouse, built in 1892 and recenty restored. Old Red is used as a museum now.

I love the contrast of old and new buildings. The Dallas downtown buildings seem to be a mixture of like 1920s and 21st century and nothing inbetween. Also definitely looks like more of a walking city than Houston.

Thats good. I wish Indy preserved its courthouse, it was probably one of the most majestic public buildings in the US.

Great Downtown photo tour! I love those newish and older buildings. Except for those ugly garages.
