That's the purpose of this website; to talk about the issues and problems in our cities.

In fact the late 1980s oil bust made Houston businesses fairly conservative in their building projects. Compare the 1970s-early 1980s skyscrapers to the ones in the 2000s.

And do you realize we are coming out of the worst recession in American History? What do you expect to see....a building boom?

I drove around Houston today and the city was as dead as King Tut on a WEEKEND. No one goes outside except for a few spots in the city.

Maybe when we get more rail it will be better but it won't matter to me. I will be out of here in the next year and a half.

We need new leadership in the city who has a progressive vision.

not to be contrary, but my wife and I actually went to see the King Tut exhibit just yesterday, and it was packed.

Huh?
You people need to understand that NONE of these 'houston facts' help in making downtown fun or even profitable for the entertainment industry. FYI, HP had these 'houston facts' on their webpage as the answer to the question 'why (they build in) houston. that didn't work out.

To be fair, you don't have experience with what we're complaining about.

The museum district is one of the few decent areas in Houston.
