My husband, dog and I have lived in Deep Ellum for two years and have no desire to leave. We love the neighborhood, the people and the dining scene! I think safety is still an issue. I hear of some minor theft etc... but that could be said for just about any neighborhood. Overall a great neighborhood and convenient to downtown, uptown and so many other neighborhoods.

Love Deep Ellum! It's a great place to live in your 20s. Be careful at night though, especially walking. People get drunk and drive too much down there!
Deep Ellum is the go-to spot for a night out with friends. There are plenty of up and coming bars, like Pharmacy which serves alcoholic and non-alcoholic shakes and floats. It's not super kid friendly, but there are candy, donut, and ice cream shops around.
There are always jobs in the area.
Driving there sucks, so take an Uber/Lyft, or use DART.
Safety is a concern, many people have been assaulted and robbed.
