Welcome to IWETHEY!

New Depends on where you go, I'm sure.
The parts of Houston I saw on my trip there weren't much different from Detroit.

There parts of Houston that are definitely ugly; though, I've also driven around parts of LA that were just as depressing.


I wonder when he was last here, it could explain much. In the 80s the city was in a serious slump due to the [link|http://www.dallasfed.org/research/houston/2003/hb0304.html|bust in oil].
Between March 1982 and March 1987, more then 225,000 jobs\ufffdapproximately one in eight\ufffddisappeared in Houston.

I moved here in 87 and at the time downtown was a desolate wasteland after 6pm with the homeless taking over the streets. During the 90s our economy diversified and for the past few years our downtown has been undergoing a major revitalization. I read that some of the people who came for the Super Bowl in 2004 were so impressed with the city that they were planning to build homes here.

Interesting - he's changed the subtitle on [link|http://joelkotkin.com/|his site](or maybe the LA Times changed it for publication).
Forget crawfish \ufffdtouff\ufffde -- look to Houston for a vibrant economic model.

New I actually wasn't talking about the downtown...
We were down there in the mid-90s, and the parts we saw (from the highways) looked like every other over-developed, strip-malled, cheese-ass concrete city in the US. :-)

New Is that the Westpark Tollway?
Or is it Highway 228? Maybe the westbound leg of South Beltway 8?

"Chicago to my mind was the only place to be. ... I above all liked the city because it was filled with people all a-bustle, and the clatter of hooves and carriages, and with delivery wagons and drays and peddlers and the boom and clank of freight trains. And when those black clouds came sailing in from the west, pouring thunderstorms upon us so that you couldn't hear the cries or curses of humankind, I liked that best of all. Chicago could stand up to the worst God had to offer. I understood why it was built--a place for trade, of course, with railroads and ships and so on, but mostly to give all of us a magnitude of defiance that is not provided by one house on the plains. And the plains is where those storms come from." -- E.L. Doctorow
