The other day, after posting a piece about how people in Houston are wondering if the downtown core is even worth their time, aside from being a place to work, I picked up the latest edition of Texas Monthly. This issue had, as its focus, articles on 6 of the biggest, most important, cities in the state.
The 5 Houston articles are a varied lot:
John Nova Lomax claims that the original capital of Texas needs to be the future capital of Texas. He calls the 4th largest city in the United States “one of the strangest and most wonderful metropolises on earth”, and “weirder than Austin” which IS the capitol, and mentions the 17 sq. block theatre district, as well as the 19 museum district venues.
He writes about how “the traditional, the modern, the bizarre, and their collisions” are what make Houston weird, and mentions several other interesting areas of town as well.
