What would you say is the most racially mixed part of inner-city Dallas?

Thanks!

Default Oaklawn

Would Oaklawn or M Streets be part of that list? Downtown, West End?

Not really. I would say SW Dallas inside of Loop 12. Some people would refer to that as Oak Cliff, but there are many neighborhoods that each have their own names (Wynnewood, Oak Park, Kiestwood...). Check zip codes 75224, 75232 & 75211 in particular. There are large parts of those zips that are solidly middle class and have been integrated since the '70's. Parts of 75208 would apply as well, although some areas of that zip code are almost totally white or totally Hispanic.

75223 - Hollywood Heights/Mount Auburn/Owenwood/Jubilee Park in East Dallas - runs from Lakewood Country Club down to the north border of Fair Park.

I thinking it would North Oak Cliff since they have a healthy population of whites, blacks and hispanics who are homeowners. There are some diverse area's in north dallas but with most of them whites are the homeowners while minorities live in the many apartments.

Well, there is no small amount of arguing concerning the borders of North Oak Cliff but I would say that it is basically Illinois on the south, I-30 or Ft. Worth Ave. on the north, Cockrell Hill Rd. on the west and I-35 on the east (even though my neighborhood is just east of I-35 and it is generally considered North Oak Cliff).

Someone may disagree but that surely covers most of it. There are some great neighborhoods south of Illinois too.

And yes, North Oak Cliff has a great mix of races. It's also one of the most beautiful areas of Dallas.

Default North Oak Cliff

North Oak Cliff, eh? I'm getting the feeling that this is a pretty unique part in Dallas. And very large at the same time.

Any favorite pockets in that neighborhood? Any eclectic parts, where all sorts of cultures, architectures, peoples come together? Any especially diverse parts?

Thanks!
