M Streets – Vickery Place

Dallas > East Dallas > M Streets – Vickery Place

Welcome to the M Streets

In recent years, this neighborhood has gained popularity among young families who don’t want to sacrifice the amenities of big-city living just because children have entered their lives. The restrictions of the Greenland Hills and Vickery Place conservation districts ensure that the charming character of their streets isn’t destroyed by new construction out of sync with the existing rows of Tudor cottages.

What the Locals Say

Locals Love

Being only a short walk away from the restaurants, bars, and shops along Greenville and Henderson avenues. They don’t have to deal with the dearth of parking, as most patrons do.

Locals Complain

About drivers using the M Streets as shortcuts to get around traffic logjams on the surrounding major thoroughfares. There’s a reason residents pushed to have speed bumps installed along Belmont Avenue.

Good to Know

If the homes are pricier in Greenland Hills than in Vickery Place, it may be because of its sitting within the boundaries for Stonewall Jackson, one of the best-performing elementary schools of Dallas ISD. Vickery Place kids attend Robert E. Lee.
