There are two ways to do this:

First, if your town is broken into neighborhoods on the Zillow map (you can see this by scrolling over the map), then type into the search name "Neighborhood Name, City Name, State Name". (For example, in Seattle one might type "Ballard, Seattle, WA".   Of course, chose the same neighborhood name used by Zillow (not always what is used by the locals).

The second is if you are using a mobile device you can manually draw boundaries around the area of interest.

It's doubtful that Zillow has the correct neighborhoods in the first place, much less anything close to realistic real estate values.

Zillow is not a licensed real estate broker, does not belong to any local realtor board with access to MLS data, and does not have a single real estate professional working for them in any local market.

Zillow scrapes data from public sites like tax assessors, and then uses an "algorithm" to come up with a value.  There isn't one municipality, mortgage lender, or appraiser that uses Zillow data for tax or mortgage purposes.

The "neighborhoods" Zillow uses are more likey taken from the property tax information based on outdated neighborhoods when the land was originally platted.
