This neighborhood just north of downtown Dallas, which is roughly defined by the route of the McKinney Avenue Trolley, is chockablock with charming older residences that house many of the city's best art galleries, florists, frame shops, boutiques, and antique shops. Shaded sidewalks actually encourage walking, so begin with Stanley Korshak. Located in the Crescent Court (Philip Johnson's massive 1985 French Second Empire–on-steroids concoction), this impeccable local specialty store is fitted out in a luxuriously contemporary Milanese style, with designer boutiques, bridal shop, and the most stylish menswear in town. Uncommon Market consists of two picturesque houses and an adjacent warehouse, all overflowing with a global selection of reasonably priced furniture, decorative accessories, and architectural salvage. There are whole rooms devoted to leather-bound books, old leather luggage, and light fixtures—and an entire yard full of stone and cast-iron urns. Riddell Rare Maps & Fine Print has a rich selection of 17th- to 19th-century cartography and historical prints, focusing on Texas and the West. Photographs Do Not Bend Gallery features cutting-edge fine-art photography by regional icons as well as international stars. At the north end of Uptown is the West Village, a two-block retail–residential development with more than 30 glamorous, young-thinking shops where you can buy Vespas, custom-tailored shirts, gourmet dog biscuits, or really outrageous urban cowboy attire. Ahab Bowen is bursting at the seams with vintage dresses and costume jewelry.
