Comprising the area east of U.S. Highway 75 and north of Northwest Highway, Northeast Dallas is dominated by the family-friendly Lake Highlands neighborhood (with its well-regarded Richardson ISD schools). But on the west side of White Rock Creek, you’ll find both the Village (a huge apartment community originally conceived as the center of the city’s singles life) and Vickery Meadow, an ethnically diverse neighborhood known for housing immigrants and refugees.
