OK, while we're at it, what do people consider the boundaries of the M Streets ?

Probably because most of the homes north of Mockingbird on the east side of Abrams are zoned to Lakewood Elementary (all except the small Ridgewood Park neighborhood that is zoned to Dan D Rogers).

The narrowest definition I've heard is that it comprises the Greenland Hills neighborhood (75/McCommas/Greenville/Vanderbilt).
Greenland Hills Neighborhood Association - M Streets - Conservation District
I think this can be confusing because it includes Ridgedale and Vanderbilt (not "M" words) and it leaves out everything east of Greenville, as well as all of Martel and Matalee.

The broadest definition I've heard is "everything between 75 and Lakewood", i.e. 75/Mockingbird/Abrams/Belmont/Henderson.

What is the name for the area between Greenville/Mockingbird/Abrams/Richmond anyway? Some maps show it all as "Lower Greenville" which is really misleading. Some of the subdivisions in that area sound familiar, like Wilshire Heights and Stonewall Terrace; others, like Delmar Heights, Greenville Crest, Lakeview Terrace and Altadena, not so much. This DISD map lists a bunch of them:

I'm sure Lakewooder has a good answer...

As far as I know there are no "officially" recognized boundaries for Lakewood. It is not an incorporated town like HP/UP or a defined subdivision like in the burbs. The only officially recognized boundaries are for the Lakewood school district which does include areas like University Terrace. While I do realize there are generally accepted boundaries for Lakewood Proper, if someone lives 1000 yards outside of them and is in the Lakewood School district, I'm not going to get upset if they just say they live in Lakewood.

Sure there are. The neighborhood called 'Lakewood' (aka 'Lakewood' proper) has clear boundaries. And I live just across Gaston from Lakewood proper - in 'Lakewood Hills' bounded by Gaston, Grand, La Vista (inclusive), and the Lakewood Country Club

Also a state of mind. I like how natives have started saying East Dallas instead of Lakewood, because in their minds, it's getting too upscale.

According to whom? Where are these boundaries documented?
