|Texas Dallas West End Historic District | Dealey Plaza|

Nestled on the western edge of Dallas Downtown by a grassy knoll near a triple underpass and a railroad bridge atop, there is a small urban park called Dealey Plaza. Standing in-between Commerce Street and Elm Street, the open-air plaza is separated half by the one-way Main Street. Looking towards south gives a good view of Reunion Tower - the iconic landmark of Dallas whilst the opposite is the historic building of Old Red Museum.
On the same ground, there is a bronze statue of George Bannerman Dealey. He was a well-known civic leader and formerly a publisher of The Dallas Morning News. Many of us mistakenly refer Dealey Plaza and the statue were built in honor of President John F. Kennedy since Dealey Plaza is typically cited as the venue where JFK was shot. On contrary, this square has been around since 1940.
Albeit small in nature, it is a pleasant spot to sit down, unwind, in touch with history over the contrast of Dallas modern skyline that rises behind!
