Hi all,

Can somebody give me approximate boundaries for the Uptown area (i.e. Street X to Street Y, and Street Z to Street A)? as well as Deep Ellum?, and any other areas that young professionals might want to live. These are just some of the places that I keep reading about where 20-30s, professionals live, however, if there are other areas.. please share! I'm not sure yet about the downtown area itself, as it starts to get a little more pricey than I would like..but if there's economical units in that area, please share as well.

I am looking for apartments not too far from the downtown area, since I will be working there. I am willing to look a little bit further out, but as long as there is easy/quick access to the DART rail.

Oh, I'm looking for something preferably 2/2 or 2/1, 900 to 1200 sq ft, with a price ceiling of about 1300/month. Does this exist? Or am I dreaming??

Thanks in advance!

Dallas doesn't define its neighborhoods like some cities do. Check out the definitions on Wikimapia, they are pretty close to consensus.

Also look at the Cedars, Oak Lawn, Knox-Henderson, Expo Park and Bishop Arts

Ok, thanks!

About the price range for the sq ft ratio, does anybody have any input on this? How realistic is this?

Uptown is loosely defined as north of Woodall Rogers, south of Fitzhugh, west of 75, and east of Turtle Creek/ Cedar Springs.

Deep Ellum is basically north/ northwest of I-30, south of Baylor Hospital, and east of 75.

Other young professional neighborhoods are Downtown, Turtle Creek/ Oak Lawn, The Cedars, North Oak Cliff, Knox-Henderson, M Streets/ Lower Greenville, and The Village Apartments. Most of these neighborhoods are looping around the general Uptown/ downtown area. Many threads on here about these neighborhoods, too, if you're interested.

Expo Park is between Deep Ellum and Fair Park - another area to consider - a bit more cutting edge.

Boundaries:

West, until it gets glittery rainbow fabulous.
North to the shopping mall-prison.
South to freeway construction.
East to the twin automobile-choked roads of Frat Dorm Hell.

That's pretty much it.

Please tell me you got that description from Uptown's Bureau of Tourism brochure. LOL

Great links!

I'm sure it seems like a dumb question for a local, but I'm confused by the Uptown map. Is Uptown the area inside the thick black box, or the colored boxes?

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.
