We love our neighborhood. Sure, we get teased for being tree huggers and historical architecture zealots, but haters wouldn’t hate if we weren’t so cool.

In a TikTok video, @serjfromtexas paints a funny and rather accurate picture of Lakewood as a neighborhood full of families looking for “community.” Serj goes on to say that we like to golf at the country club and practice yoga to relieve all our stress.

If you’re feeling singled out, rest assured Serj has enough shade to throw around at Uptown, Deep Ellum, Preston Hollow and other Dallas neighborhoods.

Part of what makes Lakewood so great is the ability to laugh at ourselves.
