7110 Cliffdale Avenue

If you aren’t familiar with the El Tivoli Place neighborhood, you’re not alone. Touted as a hidden North Oak Cliff treasure, the neighborhood epitomizes the saying that “big things come in small packages.”

El Tivoli Place is big on beauty, charm, life, and style. Despite its proximity to downtown Dallas, the neighborhood maintains a quiet, serene vibe characterized by rolling hills, creeks, winding streets, and old-growth trees. And the history of El Tivoli Place is every bit as colorful as the tapestry of native spring flowers growing throughout the area.

I need to get in touch with assistant city manager Joey Zapata and check out his new digs in Oak Cliff. Zapata moved out of a cush suburban home and into the city, buying a 1949 vintage home in El Tivoli Place in North Oak Cliff. I read his guest column last week in the City of Dallas “10 Seeds of Change” newsletter. It caught my eye, but truth be told, Rudy Bush over at the Dallas Morning News beat to me to reporting on it. It all came full circle today when someone asked me about city noise living on Hillcrest Road. I love what Jimmy said about living in the city, and I quote him herewith:

“Living in an urban city means learning to get along in a more crowded, more diverse community. A car horn in the morning for a shared ride, or the occasional music from a nearby party. But there are also neighbors walking the neighborhood and stopping to say hello; there are brimming opportunities for shopping and dining nearby; and so much history. And so many people that understand the true value of the place we call home.”
