Welcome to the new Preston Hollow Advocate, your favorite neighborhood magazine, now with a sleeker package and an expanded focus on the people, places and businesses that make this area so desirable.

In our 18 years of covering neighbors and news in Preston Hollow, we’ve seen this precious piece of the city fight to protect what makes it unique, something we celebrate every month with a peek inside the lives, careers and homes of its fascinating and fabulous residents.

But we can’t do it without you, our readers.

What you’ll find here is a constant invitation to engage with each other. Our new cover design is a sort of “Where’s Waldo” of iconic neighborhood hangouts — like this neon cowboy hat spotted at The Theodore. Play along and tell us where we should photograph next. Online, you’ll find enhanced magazine coverage, such as video of crime writing Glendora Avenue resident Skip Hollandsworth chatting about the time he broke into a murderer’s home with his 12-year-old stepdaughter in tow (trust me, you want to hear this story from the horse’s mouth). You also can find 24/7 updates online or connect with us on social media to have the news of the neighborhood sent to your feed.

Here in these pages, we’ve diversified our mix of stories, so we can cover even more. Our Up Front features will highlight everything from interesting data in Go Figure, to Places to Avoid because of construction traffic, to the most Notable Alums from Preston Hollow’s incredible educational institutions. Come sail away with our Travel section, and get your monthly fix of local house porn in our Design stories.

Like all new things, we will continue to refine our style and substance, and we’re always eager for feedback on what you would like to see in your Preston Hollow magazine. Have a suggestion or story idea? Email me any time at echarrier@advocatemag.com or call 214.560.4200.

Peace, love and Preston Hollow,
