I'm embarrased Fort Worth's nice downtown was compared with Oklahoma City's lackluster downtown.

OKC could catch up quick though. The "core to shore" park and surrounding developments are mighty impressive, Bricktown is neat (but a bit tourist-trappy), they've added an impressive skyscraper, Moody Gardens has been well kept, the downtown pedestrian network is growing stronger, and they are working on a streetcar. Fort Worth would be smart to follow some of OKC's paths.

Interesting chart of the day. Between 2010 - 2016, the population of Dallas grew by 100k and the population of Fort Worth grew by 90k. During these six years, Dallas actually saw a decrease in single-family housing as the city put up more multi-family and became denser.

Dallas proper has added more individual residents than Fort Worth proper in the past 7 years? That's news to me.
