Ah, Oak Cliff – my how times have changed … and fast!
There was a time that there were only about two or three areas anyone outside of Oak Cliff had heard of, let alone would think about living in – those of us who have been over here a while called it the “Ooooo” factor. “Oooooak Cliff?” They’d say, with raised eyebrows.
The inevitable first question:
“Isn’t it dangerous”? No
Followed by the second and third questions: “Where do you shop for groceries,” and “Where do you eat”? We did have some decent options, actually.
Well, those times seem to in the rear-view mirror, as even national and international media is picking up on the “Brooklyn of Dallas.” We’ve even been called that hipster of hipster part of Brooklyn, Williamsburg. Not sure we’re there yet!
