If I'm looking for a neighborhood in Dallas that is similar to the Heights/Montrose neighborhoods in Houston, where would I look? M Streets? East Dallas? Uptown? Specifically, I want to rent a house with a yard (2 dogs), and would love an old house with updates. No suburbs for me, please -- want to be "in town". Would pay up to $1500/month in rent, but would move a little farther out if it would bring the price down and the square footage up.

Thanks.

Lower Greenville/Henderson and Junius Heights would probably be somewhat comparable. I lived in Houston for a couple of years and I like those better. Lakewood is adjacent and is sort of a cross between West U, River Oaks and Memorial - although a bit more egalitarian. Dogs rule in this area and we have the best-known dog park in Texas at White Rock Lake.

If you are looking for more of a gay scene like Montrose then you should try Oak Lawn or North Oak Cliff (although it's not really that dense or commercial).

Good suggestions from LWer. I'll add Bishop Arts District to the list.

Hmmm, that's difficult. Montrose definitely has its own unique vibe.

Though I'd agree with the above about Oak Lawn / Oak Cliff.

Houston's Heights neighborhood would be similar to Winnetka Hts. in Oak Cliff and Junius Hts. in East Dallas. Montrose = Oak Lawn.

I would say that yes, the Oak Lawn/Cedar Springs area is eqiuvalent to Montrose. But you won't be able to get a house with a yard there.

For a house with a yard I would suggest M Streets or a neighborhood in North Oak Cliff.

Is Oak Cliff the neighborhood by the zoo?

Does anyone know why the map isn't contiguous? And why some areas considered to be Oak Cliff aren't included?

Adamson High, the original Oak Cliff High School, isn't included. South Oak Cliff HS isn't included. Oak Cliff Cemetery isn't included. Oak Cliff CC isn't included.

So I wouldn't assume this map is 100% accurate.
