A suburb of Dallas, it breifly flashed into national news-worthiness when blacktop heroin found its way there in the late 90's, leading to a slew of deaths. It can be divided into 2 regions
A. West: The newer part, it also has a higher per capita income(on the order of $100,000-$120,000). Its schools are still a hotbed of drug activity due to the high preponderance of bored, rich kids, but heroin has fallen out of favor.
B. East: Considered by most Plano-ites, to be the "ghetto" section of Plano, the vast majority is still upper-middle class. It however lacks the number of shopping malls/ multiplexes/ etc. that have arose in the west side during the building boom that hit the DFW area in the 90's.
In Plano there are two types of students; bored, rich junkies and GPA-whoring asians
A medium-sized community (about 250,000 people) in the northeastern sector of the DFW metroplex. Alot of shit is said about it from people who don't even live here. First of all, let me begin by saying that really the only "rich" part of Plano is the area in between George Bush Tollway, Dallas North tollway, Windhaven Parkway, and Preston Road, which only makes up for about 1/6 of the city as a whole. However, once you pass Coit road going west, you will definitely notice a change in atmosphere. Even then it's not rich, if you want to see rich go to Beverly Hills. And there are actually many low-income government housing projects in the Plano West attendance zone. Plano is also known for its abundance of movie theatres, such as the Cinemark Legacy, Tinseltown, the Angelika, the Movies 10 dollar theatre (YES! a DOLLAR THEATRE in PLANO!!! AREN'T YOU SHOCKED????) and the Studio Movie Grill. I really can't think of a place I'd rather live, but maybe because I've lived here about 95% of my life
Plano, TX sure is fine and dandy.
A city that is sometimes thought of as "all of America summarized into one city." In this city, there are at least 20 people from each region of the planet. The crime rate in Plano is usually minimal, however drug abuse occured often in the 90's
. In the early 90's
and late 80's
Plano was a large town with few shopping centers and malls, until a building boom in the mid-90's
Plano is often divided by young citizens, the West
side and the East
(also known as downtown
Plano, or more crudely, the Ghetto
- it is not very poor, however it isn't as new.) The West
Side has more money per capita than the East
side. East Planoites
(usually of teenager age) describe West Planoites
, rich bitch
, and pot...
also a hotbed of single chicks fucking married men.
hey, did you hear robin is fucking lawrence (name change)
of Plano. that fat fucker is even inviting her to the neighborhood easter egg hunt.
Suburb of Dallas, Texas. We're pretty diverse.
You got the minorities in the east who beat/shoot each other up.
You got the middle class mixture in the center of the city who is high on pot.
Then you've got the snobbily rich white kids in the west who are high on heroine.
That's the truth. Trust me, I live here. Don't pay attention to any stupid MTV documentary.
A city in Texas with tons of rich kids and Asians. Also the heroin capital of the world.
I'm moving to Plano.
a city off of Dallas
with a well known school district where they give you so much homework and other school stuff that it's like a concentration camp. it can be separated into 3 areas: West, Central, and East. the stereotypic west planoite
is a rich snobby person when in real life they are just a bunch of druggies
who have rich or upper middle class parents. on the east side the stereotypic planoite is a gang banger
when they're just the lower middle class and down. in the central area they are just the normal people who are in the middle class. so basically how it works is the east kids don't like the west kids because they think they're all rich and the west kids don't like the east kids cause they think they're all gang bangers that are going to end up killing them and the central kids are just kinda stuck in the middle of the fight.
i have to live in plano.
