There’s not much paint left on the crosswalks at what’s been traditionally known as The Crossroads — the intersection not just of gay culture in Dallas, but of Cedar Springs and Throckmorton roads. (A bookstore and gathering place called Crossroads Market stood on one of the corners for 25 years.)
The intersection has some of the heaviest pedestrian traffic in Dallas outside of Downtown — maybe as much as Downtown, especially on weekends.
Danny Sikora, owner of Thairrific, sent us the above photo with the note: “Not much paint left on the crosswalks at The Crossroads. Do you think the City can repaint this?”
Cedar Springs Road divides Districts 2 and 14 (Councilmen Adam Medrano and Phillip Kingston respectively). Their offices have been notified.
How about rainbow stripes, anyone?
