Life in Irving - 8/29/2013

My family's lived here since the 70's. I've since then grown up here. Irving is good for anyone looking for that suburb life style. The Cowboys have sadly moved out and, being near DFW airport, it's open to a lot of new people passing thru or moving in. A new strip club welcomes you as you come in thru the airport, they opened a year late due to fighting the majority of residence opposed to the idea and feel it does not reflect the towns people accurately. Strip club owner i more proud of his victory do doubt. A lot of Hispanic people have moved in (enough to note population growth in the early 90's.) My grandparents call south Irving "little mexico", and I think they all came from grand prairie, the next city south. Lots of family want to move out feeling it is not the same town they moved too, due to other developments. New muslin moscs have been built thru out the city. lots of Katrina victims are still noticeably here. Very crowded. Now, the next city west, is Euless. Euless aka(use less)in the 70's Euless police by reputation would harass people. They have since then cleaned up their act. Oddly enough, it's Euless P.D. who's now having problems with Irving P.D. Such as falsifying citations to read Irving Streets, while on Euless streets. Generating more revenue for the city of Irving. Which is no doubt financing new city "improvements". Irving officers have been known to "forget" to give lady's their identification back, only to use info to look up and even pursue them personally or (ask them out). Irving police assume our children have no parents and it's there obligation to raise them. A lot of focus on "knocking some since" into those teens. Be aware, that assigned judges to this district support Revenue for the city, over true justice and make there rulings accordingly. There are at least three new schools to house population growth. If you don't want your child speaking Spanish, move north or west, of the city. A good friend of mine was entering the local police force and was harassed by an officer,He sued the department and won. A San Fransisco style complex has been put in los Colinas area (yuppy land) and a dart rail bus after that, to take you to and from a large event venue put in next to and after that. This is just an over view of life style to look forward to, in this area. [read more...]

Middle of the Road - 10/31/2007

I've lived in several places, from the Deep South to the Deep Southwest, and I must say that Irving, Texas, physically in the very center of the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, is very much in the middle of the geographic as well as demographic spectrum. It isn't too much or too little of anything. Sure, we could live in a setting with more natural beauty, less traffic, more spring and fall, less summer and winter--but hey, we all have to live somewhere, and this version of somewhere has served my partner and me rather well for the little-over five years since we moved here from El Paso. (Yes, El Paso, a charming holdout of the true wild west that gets an undeserved bad rap from lots of people who've never strayed beyond Interstate 10.)[read more...]

Irving - 6/7/2007

I work in Irving, so I am here every day. First off, let's mention that the city has grown I believe "7,300 %" since 1970. Don't believe me ? Look it up sometime. David Brooks mentioned that in an article on suburbia a couple years back. The result is a kind of "United Nations" effect, with pretty much every nationality represented here: Indians, Chinese, a big new Islamic center (I see more and more women in head scarves), Finns (Nokia), Germans, etc. etc. The city is thus very new and not very representative of the U.S. The "Los Colinas" area is nice, very upscale, clean, very "corporate". Irving still allows smoking indoors in public, even in the restaurants (Dallas and Arlington and now Plano all have clean indoor air ordanances). Mother's Against Drunk Driving (MADD) has its world headquaters here, and I recently saw a police car here that said "DUI Unit". Drink at your own risk in Irving ! Last year the TABC (Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission) sent agents into bars and hotel lounges and actually arrested patrons at the bar for public intox. I am not making this up (as Dave Berry would say).[read more...]

Smack-dab middle of the Metroplex - 1/17/2006

The best descriptor of Irving is "middle." It is not the best Dallas suburb, and not the worst, although "D" Magazine in 2004 ranked it nearer the bottom than the city would like to admit. There are good and bad "pockets" in terms of neighborhood quality, ranging from the southernmost portions being taken over by slum lords and the northernmost being taken over by developers of pseudo-European tract mansionettes. A fly-over shows a sea of the same grey-shingled, hip-roofed, zero-lot-line subdivisions that you will find surrounding just about every major metro area in the U.S. Irving has a designated "Heritage District" in its 100-year-old downtown area; sadly, this is relegated to a few streets of mostly retail shops, scant historical buildings, and not many historic homes. Like the rest of the DFW Metroplex, Irving has at least one church at every intersection, a miasma of strip malls and freeways, and very little natural beauty. Aside from that, anything one could want is either somewhere on Belt Line Road or a 20-minute dash to another ticky-tack DFW suburb.[read more...]
