Up along the Hempstead Highway and the Northwest Freeway, this beat includes Northwest Mall and Brookhollow.

Not all of Montrose -- mostly the parts east of Montrose Boulevard. It also includes Avondale and part of the Fourth Ward.
6. Beat 17E40 -- Fondren Southwest
Ah, you knew this was coming. But you may be surprised it only checks in at number six. Generally both sides of Bellfort, in between South Gessner and Hillcroft. Hey, Hair Balls lives not far from there!!
