The following was in the main article. Probably belongs here instead.

Incorrect information. The area has never been predominately Jewish. Though there is a Jewish temple in Bixby Knolls, and there is a presence of Jewish faith residents, they have never dominated the population. There is only one shopping center - the Bixby Knolls Shopping Center - which is approximately 80-percent empty and has been in this capacity since the late 1980s. No new condos or apartment buildings have been constructed since the 1940s. The population is - and always has been - upper middle class Caucasian. There are some minority residents, but the do not represent a strong or "large" presence. Only two homes in the Virginia Country Club are behind gates. The one gate area in Bixby Knolls is a small street named La Linda Drive.

Not noted in the article: There is a growing number of middle-aged gay couples moving into the neighborhood. The two Bixby Knolls schools (Longfellow Elementary and Hughes Middle) are nationally-ranked Blue Ribbon Schools.

The home price range is accurate.

I would take issue with the description of the boundaries listed in the article, particularly to the east. The original development of Bixby Knolls was clearly defined in an article in the Press Telegram as being east of Atlantic between Bixby and San Antonio -- some of the first homes built by the developer were on Lime and Olive in the 4200 and 4300 blocks. Further (and later) development came West of Atlantic. There is a copy of the PT article and a description of the boundaries at the Bixby Knolls Business Improvement Association web page at —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 23:14, 12 March 2010 (UTC)
