Dallas – Fort Worth Hoods
Map of the Fort Worth and Dallas Gangs and Hood Areas
With Fort Worth and Dallas hoods being located in the state of Texas’ largest metropolitan, often called the “Metroplex”, it should come to no surprise that there are numerous Dallas and Fort Worth hoods. The map below, which also may showcase some of the Fort Worth and Dallas gangs affiliations, but mostly highlights all of the urban areas of the Arlington, Fort Worth, and Dallas hoods, as well surrounding areas.

The most known of the Dallas hoods is the neighborhood of Oak Cliff. Oak Cliff is more of a side of town with numerous subhoods like Highland Hills, WoodTown, Glen Oaks, PTP, Kiest N Polk, Signing Hills, BFL (Best For Less), and other sections of South Oak Cliff.
West Dallas was once the home to half of Dallas’ public housing projects, like Rupert Circle and the Fishtrap Projects, which were mixed communities. At one point in time West Dallas hoods were one of the roughest areas in the city with the heart of the West Side being in the George Loving Place, Edgar Ward Place, and Elmer Scott Place housing complexes.
South Dallas has always been one of the more active sections of Dallas. South Dallas was been known to be home to 357 Dixon Circle, 187 Park Row, 007 Bon Ton, 232 Turner Courts, 44 Oakland, 415 EDP (East Dallas Projects), while also being one of the most known sections of Dallas gangs of the Bloods and Crips.
In North Dallas, which has become more known over the years, has been known to be home Webb Chapel, Spring Valley, Hamilton Park, Markham, and handful of other hoods. North Dallas mostly consists of apartment complexes, especially around Park Lane, Skillman and Audelia, and Forest Lane.
*Dallas gangs were much bigger and more active during the 1990s, similar to other cities, with a large influx of Blood and Crip adopting ‘hoods throughout the city. The Dallas gangs on the map are mainly, at the latest, of the 2010s.
Fort Worth Hoods:
The Fort Worth hoods often gets overlooked by the city of Dallas, but Fort Worth, which is not as big, is not that much different with many sections from Stop Six to the South Side, all putting on for Funky Town.
With historic neighborhoods that have been part of the community for generations, neighborhoods like the South Side, around Terrell Heights, Como, and even Stop Six have been part of the city’s black population since its early days.
Today, the heart of Fort Worth resides on the South Side, known for the Agg Land and Hoova Land area, and the East Side, which is home to legendary areas like Stop Six, Eastwood, Polywood, Meadowbrook, and many more that are located on the map.
As far as Fort Worth gangs, Bloods and Crips have been active in the city the early 1990s, if not before, with the likes of the Stop Six Bloods, home to Truman Street and Norris Street, or the EastWood Pirus, while the Crips, who were mostly Hoovers, were in areas like the South Side and parts of the East Side.
*Obviously with there is a large presence of Latino and Mexican hoods in the Dallas Fort Worth, but not many are truly highlighted on the map, at least for now. The map is currently being updated as the representation is more so of the 2010s, than the 2020s.
