YPD: Out of all the neighborhoods in Dallas, you chose Lakewood. Why is this community special to you?
CB: It’s eclectic, fun, totally family oriented.  Feels like a SMALL town but you’re in Dallas!  The schools do so many things to involve the families … movie nights, carnivals, popsicle parties.  It’s so fun!  I love the diverse architecture of the homes, the trees and being so close to the lake.
YPD: Speaking of homes and trees, which Lakewood street is your favorite for taking in the sights?
CB: Tokalon…aahhhh

This may be the Highland Park chick in me speaking, but, I’d heard a lot of great things about the grandeur that is Swiss Avenue, and all I have to say is: not so much. Driving down the avenue, my eyes were met with unmanicured lawns and houses that seriously need to be gutted in order to receive my stamp of approval. If you own a large home on a street whose name is synonymous with “McMansion” I think you can afford a landscaping service. Please, mow your lawn.
