Y'all are doing one heck of a tribute to my home city. KUTGW!

I love the fact that the 2006/07 era construction shots of the TMC are ALREADY DATED. :tup:

Though even the photo from the 90s (2nd in the series) gives you an idea of how much has changed over the past 10 years.

Two from my flickr site. These are from the Greenspoint area.

Those series of pictures by Kevin is Los Angeles-like.

Agreed

Houston & LA's skyline are strikingly similar in height, number of buildings, & architecture. Even from certain angles they bear strong resemblance. In total number of talls though Houston has LA beat.

OneMetropolis Jun 20, 2009 5:58 AM

Houston skyline and architecture is nice is just that it's in the middle of scenic nowhere as for the rest of the city. I would have a huge problem living in Texas because I'd feel isolated from the rest of the world really. Texas is just to big for me, but yeah good location plays a huge role in a skyline. A skyline that seems out of place (Houston) and is fairly isolated loses points, but of course i am just spewing out of my ass and i never really been to Houston nor Texas so basically yeah.:D

How is Texas isolated? We're located right in the center of the US (3 hours from West Coast 3 hours from East Coast by air) if anything, California is very isolated from the rest of the country besides the West Coast & Mexico.

Man, if only Houston was walkable...

We are working on that and with many more more rail lines and hopefully pedestrian corridor guidelines by 2012 things will start to change.

As far as feeling isolated...I don't think this is the case. We are in the mega state of Texas with 3 of the top 10 most populous cities in America and are halfway between the east and west coasts, as pointed out, so I've never felt isolated.
