You make no sense. The sugar mill hasn't been a real player in decades. Lower living conditions after it closed? What evidence of this do you have? All evidence I've seen, such as income growth in Sugar Land the last several years, shows the exact opposite of what you say. The Imperial site is being revamped and a baseball stadium built next door. If anything, land values have gone up nearby... look at how the State agreed to shut down the central prison unit by the airport because the land was deemed too valuable for that use! This is a rare event.
As far as crime, that's gone up everywhere, and I doubt it's significantly higher in Sugar Land than The Woodlands or most other comparable suburbs.

You find that anywhere
what I like about The Woodlands is that they spent a lot of money on trails and parks throughout the whole city.
One bad thing, you have to drive on I-45 no matter where you go.

Sugar Land was named the safest city in Texas in 2010, based on FBI crime stats.

I personally like the "feel" of the Woodlands better than Sugarland.

I agree, hence Asian town in SW Houston, closer in than Sugarland, demonstrates this is true.

What are you talking about? Comparing income/poverty levels, the two areas are almost identical (see http://quickfacts.census.gov/qfd/states/48/4870808.html): (http://quickfacts.census.gov/qfd/states/48/4870808.html%29: - broken link)

Median household income, The Woodlands: $103,229
Persons living in poverty, The Woodlands: 5.1%
Median household income, Sugar Land: $101,611
Persons living in poverty, Sugar Land: 5.3%

This very website has a database of crime stats by year (http://www.city-data.com/city/Sugar-Land-Texas.html) and those records indicate no increase in crime over the past several years in Sugar Land. Also, Sugar Land is consistently rated one of the safest communities in America and is, according to 2010-2011 data, the safest city in the state of Texas with over 75,000 people.

It's fine that you prefer one over the other, but making up total nonsense to support your choice isn't helpful to anyone.
