Old East Dallas

History Abounds
Rich in culture, architectural heritage, and art, Old East Dallas is a great living option. With a hundred and twenty-five years of construction behind it, the neighborhood consists of an exceptional composite of home styles and sizes. Old East Dallas is well-known for its historic districts, each displaying its personality of home styles. Swiss Avenue, established in 1905, was Dallas’ first historic district, and today acts as the ‘Town Green’ of Old East Dallas. Bryan Parkway offers a wonderful collection of craftsman bungalows, Junius Heights, the largest of the historic districts, abounds with one-story cottages, Peaks Suburban and Wilson Blocks are graced with gingerbread homes, LaVista showcases Tudor houses, and Live Oak boasts colonial revivals. Next to Junius Heights, a large CitiHomes development was completed in 2007 and sold out within the year, and new apartments continue to be added in Bryan Place and Central.

NorthPark, one of the nation’s finest malls, is a short drive away. A busy nightlife is alive in Old East Dallas - hot spots include Uptown Pub, Sandbar Cantina, Christies Sports Bar & Grill, and Anvil Pub. There are highly-rated restaurants in the area including The Rustic, E Bar Tex-Mex, Grabbagreen, and Pecan Lodge. Parks are prominent- including Exall Park and Buckner Samuell Park. Both recreation grounds have winding trails, grills, and picnic areas for residents to enjoy. There are grocery stores in town for convenience including Walmart Neighborhood Market, El Rancho Supermercado, and Aldi. If you desire to be part of a community beloved by its residents, then Old East Dallas is for you.

Old East Dallas — 7.3/10 Rating (based on 8 neighborhood reviews)
The neighborhood is mid-gentrification. There are areas that have been completely gentrified and areas that have yet to be touched. It is definitely a diverse area with a lot of cool restaurants.

Modera Hall Street
Amazing location. Quick access to 75 and into heart of downtown. Takes only 5 minutes to get to Lemmon Ave, Greenville Ave and Skillman Ave. Area surrounding the property is either residential neighborhood or sketchy gas stations. Shady characters have been spotted on the property peeking in the gymnasium windows. But overall, safe comparable to anything further south.

I like the neighborhood. It is more quiet and residential while still being very close to the more active areas such as Deep Ellum, Uptown, and Downtown.

I hate the neighborhood that I live in. The apartment complex as a whole does not belong in this area. For the quality and price it deserves a better location. I have lived there for 10 months and heard construction every single day. It is a lower income area, a lot of homeless people roam the streets, causing noise and sometimes an unsafe feeling.

It has great access to 75, but as soon as you drive further away from the highway, you can tell that the area gets a little more dangerous and rough. However, it's a quick drive to Target and Whataburger, so that is wonderful

We have lived in Swiss Tower for almost three years. We love living on campus at Dallas Theological Seminary! Great neighbors and community. We can see Fair Park from our window.
