Select by Location Raster and Shapefile

I was wondering/hoping someone would be able to give me a hand and push me in the right direction.

I have a .dat file that I imported from ENVI to Arcgis and multiple .shp files of smaller regions within the area that the .dat file covers. I can't seem to figure out how to have only the area of the .dat file shown be that of the .shp files.

I tried select by attributes and select by location to no avail. I get an error 999999 when I try select by location (.dat file went into input and the .shp into selecting features). I'm not sure where I'm going wrong here.

Basically, I have a heat map of a city and want to only see specific neighborhoods. I tried to cut them out in ENVI and port them over to Arcgis that way, but the mean and data gets a bit skewed improperly if it doesn't have the full dataset to work off.

many ways, but the extraction toolset in the Spatial Analyst would be the first go to

An overview of the Extraction toolset—ArcGIS Pro | Documentation

begin with a look at extract by mask, or polygon

... sort of retired...
