Thanks!
There are lots of unique neighborhoods within the part of SW Dallas that is inside of Loop 12. The area contains housing built in many different eras so you can find all sorts of architectural styles. Check out Winnetka Hts. for the largest historic district in the city. It's predominantly prairie style homes from the early 20th century. Wynnewood North is a beautiful area full of 1940's & 1950's ranch style homes. Other areas have large concentrations of tudors and bungalows. Old Kessler Park has beautiful 1920's mansions. The Bishop Arts District and the surrounding areas are probably the most eclectic. Are you looking for a neighborhood in which to buy a house? The prices can go from less than $100k up to about $2m depending on the specific neighborhood.

Try as I might, I can't make much sense of this post.

If you're looking for an integrated neighborhood, read most of this post.

Many areas of North Dallas are integrated, but the housing is mostly Caucasian while the apartments are mostly minority. However, they aren't "slums" in any sense of the word.

I agree, it's all in this thread. SW Dallas offers the most diversity in my opinion. It's got ghetto, it's got rich and it's got everything in between.

im sorry i meant to put, i have a feeling caucasions do NOT like living by minorites because from i see they try to live pretty far from the city and make up new neighborhoods. it seems like they getting further north, like rockwall, royce city, greenville, rowlett, plano, and etc. any further they going to be in okla. but i really dont see where the city have a good mixed racial area and the parts i see being thrown out there arent that mixed. thats sad.....

There was quite a bit of white flight in the late 70's early 80's. That is no longer the case IMHO. Most people buy homes based on economics. The northern burbs have a larger white population because the per captia income is higher. This not to say there is no diversity because there certainly is. Places like Garland, Mesquite, Lewisville and others have lots of diversity. The innercity really does not offer much for the middle class. You have either low income or upper middle class area's to live. Now that North Oak Cliff is growing the middle class have some options. Before this you would be hard pressed to find a nice home in a nice neighborhood in the $125k-200k price range. I grew up in Dallas and it certainly is nothing like it was 20 years ago.
