North Richland Hills features popular businesses and locations including the NRH20 Water Park, North Hills Hospital, its own state of the art public library and is surrounded by communities including Haltom City, Keller, Hurst, and Southlake.
It also infamously housed the now-demolished North Hills Mall (now the new location of the NRH City Hall as of 2015) which ceased operations in 2004, due to its higher-end competitor North East Mall in Hurst (approximately 5 mi) expanding with a cost of $200 million in 1999, with openings of upscale stores Nordstrom and Saks Fifth Avenue in 2001. Respectively in 2012, North Richland Hills was ranked at #44 (ahead of Hurst) as one of the Best Dallas Suburbs according to D Magazine.
The median income for a household in the city was $63,806, and the median income for a family was $74,866. The per capita income for the city was $30,890. About 6.6% of families and 7.5% of the population were below the poverty line, including 11.7% of those under age 18 and 4.3% of those age 65 or over.
