Dallas skyline has been deemed the best in the entire world by USA Today and 10Best. Big D was among 20 nominees for the honor of “Best International Skyline”. Other cities included included Chicago, Seattle, Paris, Kuala Lumpur and Rio de Janeiro.
A panel of architects selected the 20 competitive cities and readers were given four weeks to vote. Chicago placed second. Rio de Janeiro third. Toronto and New York rounded out the top five. Dallas got its skyline popularity from the hit series ‘Dallas’ and in music videos such as Vanilla Ice “Ice Ice Baby”. Not saying that Ft. Worth, Houston, and Austin with its beautiful downtown do not compete but Dallas whens over other Texas cities as well. Check out this breathtaking view of the Dallas skyline.
We have started the year off shaking in the City of Dallas as two earthquakes today including a 3.5 and a 3.6 both centered near the old site of the former Cowboy’s Stadium in Irving.
They seem fun and cute for now to joke around about but it could lead to serious damage as our buildings and infrastructure are not cut out for earthquakes. This video is from before tonight’s quake, but after this afternoon’s.
In a recent feature from CNBC titled “Five US tech hubs you probably didn’t know about,” Dallas ranks in fourth place. The article went on to say that Dallas is heating up as a hotbed for both tech workers and companies.
The current tech boom is not just in the Bay Area, and some unlikely cities are gaining traction as key hubs. San Francisco, New York City and Austin, Texas, are often cited as thriving tech areas there are other areas such as Dallas gaining momentum.
