Houstonians already know this, but it's good other cities are catching onto H-town's coolness. Born & raised in Houston, and I'm gonna die here.

Kind of an ironic designation for such a hot and humid locale.

Nonetheless, a great profile.

I find this to be true. Lol

Houston is not beautiful like L.A., but it is ugly like it: We drove mile after flat mile filled with parking lots and strip malls, fast-food restaurants and box stores, new undistinguished construction cheek by jowl with older undistinguished construction. It is empirically ugly and totally intoxicating. The point isn't that there are beautiful places hidden amid the ugliness; it's that the ugliness itself becomes imbued with a kind of beauty, thanks to the thrum of human energy that takes root there.

For some reason, that one line "Houston is not beautiful like L.A., but it is ugly like it:", stood out to me as well.
