Thanks for the update. I love the buildings. Only Fort Worth is cool enough to have buildings built in 2008 that look like they came from 1928. I love the preservation efforts, too. Fort Worth's downtown definitely has a unique feel to it.
Thanks for the comments. I was planning to go out and take pictures this afternoon, but since it was 107 officially today and temperatures in my part of town were around 110, I just wilted and stayed home.
Ft. Worth has some of the best Deco anywhere in the country. The T&P terminal is even more spectacular inside than it is outside. I remember when it was used as a train station handling traffic for most railroads into and out of Ft. Worth except the Santa Fe (which had its own terminal). The Will Rogers coliseum is beautiful, as were the Hollywood and the Worth movie theatres downtown. In general, the city has more intrinsic "character" than either Dallas or Houston and it manages to stay interesting without turning into a theme park the way San Antonio has.
I want to thank all of you for the comments. I have been out of town riding bicycles in the Davis Mountains of West Texas, so I didn't add any shots last week. I will be putting a few more up in the next few days.
