How does a city even come to look like this? And Forth Worth isn't a late 20th century city even, is it? What factors led to this odd island of a few highrises completely disconnected from anything else? Did they level all of the surrounding neighborhoods?

Google the Trinity River flood plain, take a look at a map of Fort Worth, and then also try and tone down your perpetual and incredible negative judging of everything that doesn't match up perfectly to your tender and undeniably smug sensibilities and worldview...Jeeze.

This is only based on the black and white photos I've seen posted on other forums, but I think a lot of downtown was surrounded by low rise industrial and rail uses and gritty working class areas. Nothing terribly exciting.

"Hell's half acre" had it survived could have been a cool gentrification opportunity though. However that AFAIK was torn down to build the convention center and water gardens, not just left as vacant land.

Also some things were saved, like the T&P depot

Holy shit look how lush & GREEN The Woodlands is from above!!! Absolutely nothing else like it in Texas that's for sure. Where else can you find a superbly planned master community combined with dense urban development & a 450 ft. tall lone skyscraper popping up out of the woods? Not to mention an absolutely beautiful championship golf course & top notch performance venue.
