Good Morning Angel,
Oak Lawn has many professionals and urban types living in upscale townhouses, condos, apartments, and duplexes. Along the Uptown portion on McKinney Avenue and along Turtle Creek Boulevard, there are many new high-rise condominiums and apartments. It is also a very diverse neighborhood with well established areas of older, single family homes. Oak Lawn is known for its good restaurants, as well as its many bars and clubs.
At the top of this Trulia page you can click on the "Community Info" link under LOCAL INFO. There you will find helpful neighborhood information including Crime Reports.
Please let me know if you have questions or would like me to search for properties that meet your criteria. I would be happy to help.
