I think in some ways Houston needs better PR, there is no all emcompassing image so to speak that comes to mind for the place

Many cities fail in that category. There are many entities that represent Houston to an extent, NASA, pro sports, etc, but none of them have been as historically popular as the Galleria. They should really work on downtown and the tunnel system.

In Cincinnati, it's most definitely Fountain Square:

Neyland Stadium. We're a small town (180k), if we can fill a 102k stadium on Saturdays there must be something to it.

When "It's Football Time in Tennessee" and the Vols are facing an opponent in Neyland I wholeheartedly agree, but the rest of the time the city has really moved to the downtown core for happenings. Market Square is becoming the town square, the place to hang out and meet, to eat, to shop. Of course that spills over to Krutch Park, Gay Street and the Old City but the heart is at Market Square.

In Albuquerque I would say Central Ave in Nob Hill by the UNM Campus. It's Route 66 reinvented.
