I love the neighborhood, because everyone knows each other. It is the perfect mix of peaceful and fun. There are elementary schools all around. I can ride my bike everywhere I need to go! The atmosphere is liberal and open minded. I feel safe, and I love the diversity. Everyone lives together in peace.

I've lived in Old East Dallas my whole life. 24 years. Area is comforting, especially because we haven't experienced any crimes in our neighborhood. I'm currently in the process of saving to buy a home myself, but it has gotten very expensive to live in this area. I'd hate to live in a bad area just because I couldn't afford to live here.
One of the best areas in Dallas. Alot of the smaller neighborhoods are protected from yuppie houses and the gentrification wave from sweeping them away. Dallas doesn't have much history pre-Kennedy but in this part of town you've got all kinds of history going on!
