Hey, don't look at me with your fancy Web site -- that's Forbes calling you out in its latest list, this one titled "America's Most Overpriced ZIP Codes." (Though, the "85006" isn't right -- isn't that 75209?) Greenway Parks comes in at No. 8, as the mag notes:

The areas of Greenway Parks and Devonshire border University Park and Highland Park, two of the most upscale neighborhoods in the city. As prices in the Park Cities have risen, home buyers and builders looking for cheaper land have drifted into this ZIP code, helping drive prices. Housing prices in Dallas, as a whole, have started to deflate, making this a neighborhood to watch for similar price correction.

Speaking of, Advocate posted this week an interesting list of home sales, from 2003 though June 2008, for 20 local zips, including Greenway Parks. Way to represent, '229. --Robert Wilonsky

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
