I live in Arlington and helped pay for Jerry’s Palace. Still and all, most TV commentators are starting to give recognition to Arlington instead of Dallas (DFW is semi-acceptable). However, I do appreciate your correcting the record.

I opened the Arlington Sheraton in 1985, don’t know what it is now. It was an old city water park. It was between the old Rangers stadium and Six Flags. The city, at the same time, built a “convention center” just south.

Most all the land south of the interstate in that area was empty or very old, dying buildings.

I left to open another hotel in Raleigh in about 1988.
