Just wondering how people like living in the lower Greenville area? I'm looking at moving down to the area. I've been up in Addison for awhile and I'm familiar with the area, just curious how people like it. It seems like a neighborhood, which Addison does not. Don't get me wrong, Addison is nice and a good location, just looking for something more permanent.

We live near Mockingbird and Greenville. Love the walkability, the proximity to Mockingbird Station, all the restaurants in Lower Greenville, the neighborhood and Glencoe Park. Also the easy access to the Katy Trail. Its a really great location!

I think as long as you stay more than a couple blocks away from the bar district on lower Greenville Ave. itself you should be fine. I've not lived south of Mockingbird but I walk and run there frequently. Friday and Saturday nights right adjacent to Greenville will be challenging with all the drunks everywhere.


The area you're talking about IS a neighborhood. It was an established neighborhood when there wasn't diddly squat in Addison except the Owens Corning plant and a Texaco gas station.

I've lived in the M streets for 3 years and we love it - great area. We are at Martel & McMillan. Easy/quick access to most parts of the city. Easy access to grocery stores, drug stores, hospitals, doctors, etc. while also being very walkable/bikeable to restaurants and night life. It's nice that you're near so much yet it's very quiet if you're just a short bit off of Greenville itself.

We used to live down there--halfway between Greenville & Henderson. It's even better now--so much more since we moved. Overall, we liked it, it just became too expensive/not practical when we had kids.

Parking was an issue. Our duplex had a single driveway, so one of us had to park in the street. Both of us had our side mirrors knocked off in the span of a year. Our neighbor's boyfriend had his window smashed. That was less awesome.

Thanks for your response. I wasn't saying it wasn't a neighborhood, just saying it also feels like a neighborhood. You could have something that is technically called a neighborhood, but might not feel that way.

I would most likely be on one of the side streets close to Greenville, but not on top of the area. I like going out, but I'm more afternoon or early evening. I don't stay out late, would rather be home or visiting a friend.

Thanks, great to hear. It seems to fit everything I'm looking for. I just want to make sure it isn't hype and I'm doing my due diligence. Prices are a little expensive, but I've been watching and they are starting to come down some. Additionally, with all the newer townhomes still going up, it will put more pressure on prices.

Thanks. That is exactly what I like about it. I drove around a few weekends ago just getting a feel for if I had to go to the grocery store, or running any errands, and it was quite easy. Everything was close and everything I need is right there. I wouldn't have to come back to the Addison area for anything. It would be further my office, but I work from home 99% of the time.

Lower Greenville is an upgrade over Addison. In the 2010s, which is the time I've been in Dallas, it's never been the premier spot for nightlife in Dallas though it has always had its own niche following. Uptown used to eclipse it, and since Uptown went downhill within the last 3-4 years, Deep Ellum has become the premier spot.

I'll echo the advice to stay a bit back from Greenville Ave. I lived on the corner of Greenville Ave and Longview and was miserable because of the late night noise. The home I bought was built in the 40's and had little insulation so you could hear EVERYTHING! There was also the ocassional drunk guy peeing on my lawn. I owned it a little over a year and then sold it.
