...do you assume loop 410 or 1604? I always just assume 410 and thought everyone else in town did too...until I moved inside 410. All the sudden when I say "We just moved inside the loop" people seem to assume 1604. (Which is correct, of course, but isn't terribly precise!)

So what does the phrase "Inside the loop" mean to you? 410 or 1604?

Inside the Loop has always meant inside of 410. I suppose as the times change and the city expands farther out, that phrase will change to mean inside of 1604.

Lots of my friends are city dwellers and live inside 410. Anything "inside the loop" is 410 for them and me. Anything outside that the boonies for them..which obviously isn't the truth, but different strokes for different folks.

Yeah, this is where I'm coming from. I've only lived in SA 13 years, but "inside the loop" has always meant 410.

I guess people are...I don't know...surprised that anyone would buy inside the loop? Whatever. Less traffic for me!

I think anything outside 1604 is the boonies!

I live outside 410 and inside 1604. For me, inside the loop = inside 410.

St. Louis refers to their loops as the inner loop and the outer loop. I wonder if eventually SA will start using those phrases?

I take it to mean inside 410.

But we're definitely headed towards an inner loop/outer loop definition.

I always say the name of the loop and inside or outside. That way there is no need to have this discussion

I think folks just say "inside 410" or "inside 1604" to be specific. From living in the DC area, to me "inner" and "outer" loop refers to the direction of traffic (the outer loop is moving counterclockwise, the inner loop goes clockwise).

But as for the term "inside the loop," I've heard it to represent both loops...

I think of the 610 Loop. (I thought this was in the Houston forum when I saw the Texas homepage listing).
