Today I got a chance to relieve some much needed academic stress I had lunch at Gloria’s with my classmates across the street from my favorite Taco Stand In Bishop Arts District. Then we got a chance to window shop and adventure in and out of some of the stores there. Bishop Arts Distinct is so beautiful now. It was interesting to see all the people walking around. It reminded me of the old Deep Elem. There were people everywhere. The district was so vibrant. This is what community/streets should feel like.
Throughout my studies I’ve heard all these theories about how a community and neighborhoods should look and feel like, but I guess it just depends on who you ask. Even though I hate Oak Cliff I would love to move closer to the District. This week I heard someone say what’s so great about Bishop Arts District; it’s nothing but a bunch of restaurants. I almost fell out of my seat. How can they say that. Obviously they don’t know oak cliff, because there are no decent restaurants with patio seating anywhere else in Oak Cliff.
I’m studying Adaptive Reuses right now and Bishop Arts District is a true reuse. Remembering old Bishop Arts District is I was bracing myself to walk in and out of a ton of antique stores, I was sooo wrong. For this blog I’m just going to post a few pictures.
