True to a point, but I do see pedestrians crossing Westheimer & Post Oak all of the time. What can be said for that?

It actually has less to with population and more with inane boosts that lack logic, I see this with Atlanta as well

And HTown, those who cast stones should not live in glass houses, you refuse to accept any metrics adverse to HTown while glorifying those beneficial
I guess you didn't get the memo...?

Many people had difficulty "discerning" your need to bring GDP into a conversation regarding urban feel.

It must be their comprehension skills however.

The reason why its a part of the argument is because they are getting swallowed with the urbaninity topic, so they need something to come back with.. GDP and Hospitals have nothing to do with how urban and big a city feels. So I think Houston posters need to do a better job explaining why Houston feels bigger.
