channelview is too close to the ship channel and ALL the local refineries to be consider beautiful.

they are some nice places in the area, but the SC pretty much cancels out any good...

Actually, the ship channel and San Jac River is probably the prettiest and most interesting part of Channelview. It's all the other stuff out there that is an eyesore. By the way, ther are very nice communities along the ship channel corridor and the plants and bridges are kind of pretty when lit up at night.

It is kind of eerie isn't it- how beautiful the lights from those plants can appear at night. One of my co-workers who moved here from out of state said when he first arrived he saw all the lights at a distance one evening and had to drive toward them to see what this magnificent sight was -- he was quite suprised to wind up in the middle of industry.

Port Arthur and Texas City look pretty cool at night too. But when the sun comes up, the harsh reality sets in about both of those areas.

I guess the same could be said about the waters @ Galveston Bay. That's a really nice place to sit down and eat an overpriced, after-sunset dinner. Again though, when the sun is up, the poo-brown reality sets in, and you ask yourself - did my dinner just come outta that?

Oh, no disrespect to those folks living in the area, but no way would I choose to live there. For one thing, I'd always be wondering what I was breathing.
The air quality has to be awful.

I have lived in Channelview pretty much my whole life. Swimming in the San Jacinto river was a really big thing growing up in Rio Villa... Now that I'm all grown up and my husband works on the Houston Ship Channel... I know what all is in that water and I wonder why the HELL didn't anyone tell me about this when I was young?!? I mean they should put up a sign at least warning people that want to swim/fish in this water that it is pretty much a giant toxic sewage dump >.
