This is from the paper copy of The Dallas Morning News today and from what it says it appears the online information is quite good - but I am guessing it's behind their pay wall. This is a list of the areas of Dallas where you are most likely to be the victim of a crime. The article is part of the "Bridging Dallas' North-South Gap" and is illustrating that there is crime in the northern half of Dallas, too. It gives a lot of good information about 3 of the areas, like percent rentals, poverty rate, etc, but the rest are detailed online.

Here is the list and if you get a copy of the paper or get behind the paywall they have a map that shows the boundaries of these areas.

1. Ross/Bennett (just north of downtown, east of Central)
2. Forest/Audelia (north of LBJ - feeds into Richardson ISD)
3. Webb Chapel/Timberline (northwest of Love Field, Bachman Lake area, 87% rentals)
4. Five Points (mostly north of NW Hwy, east of Central, 96% rentals)
5. St. Augustine/Bruton

6. John West/Buckner
7. Lake June/Buckner
8. Camp Wisdom/Chaucer
9. Wycliff/Maple
10. Greenville/LBJ (both sides of LBJ - feeds into Richardson ISD)

11. Spring Valley/Preston (that area between the Galleria and Valley View)
12. Jefferson Corridor
13. Royal/Skillman (south of LBJ - feeds into Richardson ISD)
14. Loop 12/Jim Miller
15. Camp Wisdom/Westmoreland

16. Julius Schepps/Central (85% rentals)
17. Samuell/Buckner (east of Dallas, south of 30)
18. Forest/Dennis (northwest Dallas, inside LBJ)
19. Hatcher/Scyene
20. Hampton/Ledbetter

21. Walnut Hill/Jupiter (northeast Dallas, inside LBJ, part feeds into Richardson ISD)
22. Davis/Westmoreland
23. Maham/Spring Valley (outside LBJ, feeds into Richardson ISD)
24. Ferguson/Woodmeadow (northeast Dallas, inside LBJ, south of Garland Rd)
25. Northwest Hwy/Walton Walker

26. Overton/Illinois
27. Central.C.F. Hawn

Default Forrest

I can vouch for Northeast Dallas on Forrest. I took my mother in law to Medical City for an appointment and she and my wife insisted afterward that we drive east to a Popeye's so they could get their beloved gizzards that only Popeye's could make right. The looks these 3 white people got from the restaurant servers! Like, are you crazy, what are doing here?

While we were sitting in our car waiting for our order, a Dart bus dropped off 2 teens. My mother in law, who was very outgoing, wanted to say hello to them. I told her, do not say anything, do not look at them, do not wave to them, do not look at them, do not look at them, do not look at them. They walked by our car and glared at us with hate in their eyes. I'll never forget those looks, it scared the heck outta me.

As we were driving away my mother in law sighed and said that times have changed and she'd never go back there. Sad that whites cannot patronize a black run business if it's in a predominately black neighborhood. I'm sure some of you have exceptions?

I would not trust the servers with my food in corporate restaurants esp in some areas. Last time I was at that Popeyes was around 4 years ago, alot can change. Those restaurants on that row had been one of the OK to go areas. I would not be surprised though if the rot is spreading east from I35 toward I75.

The owners of a family owned restaurant are likely to want most patrons to feel welcome, and the other customers would tend to be positive with the owners getting more business.

This is what spreading your low-cost/section 8 housing throughout the city gets you. Sorry, but there it is.

Yes, a lot of apartments in that area and there have been some violent crimes there including murders and convenience store robberies.

Yes, it is. It's about 1.5 miles northeast. Considering the size of the city of Dallas, that is close to downtown.
