: a three-bedroom, three-bath 179-year-old house near the Fore River in Portland, Maine; a five-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bath house in Athens, Georgia (oh, to live near the40 Watt Club

Dallas is a city that still favors drivers, but there have been an increasing number of pedestrian-friendly initiatives over the past several years. Notable ones include the expansion of parkland around the Trinity River, two miles southwest, and the construction of the Katy Trail along a former railroad line nearby.
Uh-hunh. And you also get a great view of the very former Tower Records. But, see, last I heard, Dallas just wasn't a condo kinda town.
