The condos above are listed more or less in tour order.  You can start your tour at NW Highway and Pickwick.  Head north on Pickwick with Preston Towers on your right.  Turn left on Averill Way and follow it around the U shape ending up on Bandera Avenue.  Take Bandera past Edgemere all the way to Thackery.  Turn right or South on Thackery and right again on E. Northwest Parkway (this is the service road between the buildings and Northwest Highway.  Take the service road again past Edgemere and turn right on Baltimore, just before you hit the parking lot for Athena.  Turn left on Diamond, take it to the end and make a U-turn out of this dead end street, back to Baltimore and turn left.   Baltimore is a short street and with just a few small buildings on it.  Take it to the end and turn right on Bandera Avenue again.  Take Baltimore to Edgemere and turn right on Edgemere heading to Northwest Highway. When you reach Northwest Highway you will have completed your tour.


What I love about the neighborhood Behind the Pink Wall is all the nearby shopping, restaurants, and cool finds.  Just down Northwest Highway you'll find NorthPark Center.  One of the hottest malls in the Metroplex.  Across Northwest Highway to the South you'll discover Preston Center and the Plaza at Preston Center.  Cool eateries you'll want to try are R+D Kitchen, Miss Chi Vietnamese, Flying Fish, Sevy's Grill, La Duni Latin Kitchen, and whatever comes next from Kent Rathburn in the former Blue Plate Special space.  Awesome shops you'll want to check out include the fly fishing Orvis store, The Iron Bed, Swoozies, and the Lucky Dog Barkery.

Hey vruce that is a pretty catching name how did they come up with behind the pink wall? Was it relevant to something back in the 50/60's
