Bishop Arts District - Today and Yesterday

   The Bishop Arts District in Oak Cliff is one of my favorite parts of Dallas. The mix of people and commercial ventures make the streets come alive with a sense of community that is often lacking in the 21st Century cookie cutter world of commerce.

  It's obvious that the area was once shops that serviced a early 20th century neighborhood. But I had no idea how far it had fallen before it became the hip and cool area that it is now. Look at this photo of Bishop Street circa 1985 that wad recently published in Advocate Magazine
