I have lived in Buckner Terrace for 15 years and completely love it. With the community being extremely safe for an inner city living environment, on average, less than 1% of the nearly 3000 homes are affected on any given time by a crime. There is one private Christian school, one public charter school and two public elementary schools and the nation's first Magnet High School in the Buckner Terrace Neighborhood - Skyline High School. Great Neighborhood!

We moved to this neighborhood about 6 months ago and have loved it. The houses are being renovated, the yards are well maintained, large trees, and nice wide streets.
I have a love/hate relationship with Dallas. All the interstates are under construction, so traffic is always an issue. I have to leave 90 minutes early for work, and it's 30 minutes away. There's nowhere to park anywhere, and if there is, there's a ridiculous price for it. Apartments are extremely expensive, and reasonably priced apartments are run down.
