- Neighborhood in Dallas, TX
Rating 3.57 out of 5 23 reviews
I have seen a few crime notices from the apartment complex. I personally have never had any issues. Plus, I like to run at night and have never felt unsafe.
I've been in the area for almost 9 years now. It's close to most major malls, and great restaurants. I love it. Very peaceful.
We are moving at the end of this month due to crime. We have had to call the police a dozen times within the last 6 months. I was attacked at the mailbox at 2:30 in the afternoon, we had an attempted home invasion by 2 men, I was viciously verbally attacked by my neighbor for having a cat. Management of our apartment are slumlords. I want better for my child, which is why I'm getting an education to provide a safer environment. My daughter is a special needs girl who does not progress in her classes but instead they mainstream her. In the 3rd grade her vocabulary words are kindergarten level, math is 1st grade level and reading is 2nd grade level. I have taught her more at home then she has learned at school, which is supposed to be one of the best districts in Dallas.
It is expensive and getting even more expensive.
I moved to a great neighborhood with many friendly neighbors.
I have only lived here for less than a month but it is a beautiful area, the people are very kind, and it is very close to the University of Texas at Dallas where I am attending.
I would love to raise my future family here.
We just had 5 break-ins into our apartments' complex. Police presence increased dramatically in response. I feel safer now.
The neighborhood here includes really expensive houses. You do not see so often houses for selling because people like this area. There are some affordable renting options though, with a price a little higher than other areas, but if you want safety and quiet, than I think the raport between quality and price is great.
I feel safe to run after 10 pm. There aren't any homeless people in this area, and people here demand a higher level of living, so they behave accordingly. There is always a police car going around the neighborhood, and I think that helps a lot.
The weather is the best one for me. It's always warm or hot, and my wardrobe includes shorts and t-shirts. The problem is that during the winter people are not used to drive in icing conditions, but those are for only 3-4 days in a row. Sometimes the humidity is very high, and sometimes it does not rain for a whole week, but overall I like this climate.
There are many restaurants depending on everyone's taste. I personally like Italian food, and I can find either expensive or more affordable restaurants. It is great. You can save eating good food, and maybe once every other week you can find a more fancy restaurant.
The big businesses sometimes are located in big buildings that make you feel they are fancy and too expensive, and the local stores sometimes do not have everything you want.
I haven't seen any public transportation at all.
The weather is notoriously unpredictable and changes constantly or stays really cold or really hot for long periods of time.
