Now that phrases like “urban in-fill,” “in-town living,” and “walkability,” are the new urban-planning buzzwords, many are beginning to realize that Oak Cliff, especially North Oak Cliff, is so much more than its bad reputation. In addition to legendary killers, the more upstanding Stevie Ray Vaughn, Erykah Badu, Edie Brickell, Dennis Rodman, and T-Bone Walker also once called it home. And these days, there seems to be some sort of festival almost every weekend, whether it’s the Oak Cliff Art Crawl , the Oak Cliff Block Party Peace Festival, the Oak Cliff Mardi Gras, the Oak Cliff Earth Day Festival, or Cyclesomatic.
