Kewl...I used to live on Indianola and saw the Hemisfair tower being built from day one. I didn't know this neighborhood would be popular. I used to know ppl who lived on Lavaca St.

I am the Southtown Welcoming Committee ;-)

Or maybe not. Head to Friendly Spot, chat with a local, they'll guide you.

I wish I could go back about 50 years in time to that neighborhood and walk through a preplanned route and cover streets that aren't there anymore. I.E. Santa Clara, North, South, Wyoming, Laffytte, Sycamore... I would have to be invisible so as not to change history. I would also have to hide my time machine.

We have lots of neighbors who were here 50+ years ago and have many stories to tell.

Yeah but this one is the one I grew up in and my earliest memories were from about 50+ years ago. Oh..I forgot Matagorda st. Goliad, Water, Peach, Dakota streets.
