Looks like a very unhealthy Northern Red Oak (Q. rubra). Must be in some very compacted alkaline soil? Was there some recent construction adjacent to the tree (last 5 years)?

Yes, the soil is compacted and near sidewalks.. Is that what causes dead ends of branches?

And what about this one...a Texas Red Oak, perhaps?

Quercus Velutina? They have Velus hairs under the leaf. I know some of the red oaks look so much alike.

First one -- not enough info.

Best guess for the second pic is w/poaky -- black oak. Very dark-green/shiny leaf-tops. Pic of the trunk bark might help.
