Hello I am recent transport to Dallas. i work on I-35 and Regal Row. I am now living in the Uptown/Oak Lawn/Turtle Creek area. Basically I am looking for something a little quieter and less commercial but still within 15 min to work. I like to be close to restaurants, parks and bars, but I don't think Uptown nightlife is for me.

What neighborhoods close to I-35 and Regal Row are ideal for me? Bishop Arts, Lower Greenville, Deep Ellum, Knox Henderson have all been suggested to me but also with a warning about adjacent east dallas neighborhoods. I am a 29 female, and i like to be able to walk to some parks, bars and restaurants, but places a little more laid back than Uptown bars. (Not meaning to offend Uptown, it is great)

I also realize that maybe I am in the perfect area for me, and just need to move to a quieter street (I am currently on Cedar Springs) and find more bars that are off the main streets !

Thanks.

Knox-H, Deep Ellum, and Lower Greenville are all going to be longer than 10-15 min in rush hour. Getting cross tins is a beast in Dallas.

Bishop Arts meets commute & lifestyle criteria, and you can take Hampton or Sylvan to avoid the worst of 35.

Other options that come to mind are the Design District and North Oak Lawn.

Thanks Turtle Creek! I am looking at a place in North Oak Cliff today and a place in Oak Lawn, intersection of Hawthorne and Preston Road. Although I am reading that zip code had the highest home robberies in Dallas last year so I will have to see how it feels.

75219? Really? I lived in that zip for 6 years and was never a robbery victim. It's a city neighborhood; most crimes are crimes of opportunity (unlocked house or car door, open garage, etc)....largely preventable by following take/lock/hide principles. Hawthorne is just 1 block south of Highland Park (the safest part of Dallas with a lot of HP police presence). I can't imagine you'd feel unsafe there.
