I'm still trying to figure out the difference between Uptown vs. Oak Lawn; M Streets vs Greenland Hills; which neighborhood Knox-Henderson is in; why that tiny sliver of 1-2 blocks east of Katy Trail is considered Oak Lawn vs. Highland Park; etc. I suppose it will all make sense once you've been there for a bit.
For this neighborhood map, note the Data type at the top.

The default
Data type for these neighborhood maps when you bring up a neighborhood page is:

the Median household income in 2009

However, there is a whole list of different data you can select here instead.

The dark border denotes the neighborhood.

The sections (or colored boxes as you called them) bordered in blue denote the different (in the case of the default Data type mentioned above) median household incomes for 2009 for each section in the neighborhood. You can click on each one of these sections (colored boxes) and the different data will be displayed for each.


As you can see, these maps are only going to give you a general idea of the area, not exact "on the ground specs". For your specific street questions, I'd still refer back to what TC80 and the rest of the forum members state for onsite accuracy!

Please see City-Data's City of Dallas main page for all city stats and maps.

On this main page for Dallas, scroll down and you'll see the full neighborhood list for Dallas and also the link for the full Dallas Neighborhood map.

For individual neighborhood maps and stats, select the neighborhood by name from either this City of Dallas main page or the Dallas Neighborhood map.

For instance, here are the Uptown Neighborhood stats and map that can be selected from either.

Thanks! Yes, I found this after I had made my original post

Regardless, it's nice to hear from the locals for ideas. Thanks guys!
