Support the independent voice of Dallas and help keep the future of Dallas Observer free.

•Ascension Drive •Cesar Chavez Boulevard •Eddie Bernice Johnson Parkway •Post Industrial Boulevard •Riverfront Boulevard •Stanley Marcus Boulevard •Stevie Ray Vaughn Vaughan Boulevard •Trinity Lakes Boulevard •Trinity View Parkway •Waterfront Boulevard

I think you've gotta go with Stevie Ray given these options--although I'm sure the city's salivating at the thought of selling property on the sure-to-be highfalutin Waterfront Boulevard... --Pete Freedman

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
