The lengthy strip of road that comprises the Greenville Avenue neighborhood traverses a broad cross-section of residences, restaurants, nightclubs and retail establishments. Located northeast of downtown, Greenville Avenue begins near Garret Park and stretches all the way past LBJ Freeway to Richardson. Mockingbird Lane is the boundary where Dallasites divide the street into Upper Greenville and Lower Greenville.
Lower Greenville Avenue is home to tiny shops selling antiques, resale clothing and furniture and Mediterranean and health food stores. Needless to say, it appeals to the bohemian, alternative crowd. Upper Greenville is more posh, with swanky restaurants and nightclubs and a more upscale crowd.
