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

Gray Kinney tells Unfair Park he was out shooting the debris formerly known as Reunion Arena a few days ago when he stumbled across this scene, which is obscured to drivers by the small retaining wall where S. Houston Street becomes the Houston Street Viaduct over the railroad tracks between the Dallas Convention Center and the former Reunion site. He also found several other homeless encampments "in and around the Reunion Arena parking lot," but this one, he writes, "caught my eye because it is a full-size queen bed with a sheet on it."

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.
