LOL, forgot about the finger thing!

THE loop is 410, and will always be, at least to me.

BTW, does anyone still call 1604 the "death loop"?

One vote here for still calling it the death loop.

is funny, I moved to SA 5 yrs ago and as far as I can remember, people always use the numbers, inside 410, outside 410, same thing for 1604. Gosh, I wonder what will be next after 1604...

I flunked geography; does that tell you anything? I'm lucky I know where I am, at any given time, let alone, inside or outside anything.

Am I inside, yes I am. Will I be outside? Eventually.

State Hwy 46. It already makes this nice arc on a map.

I have revised my way of thinking. In the tradition of keeping it old school inside the loop IMO refers to that circle the highways make around downtown.

I'll second that. No reason to NOT call it that. Every time I drive on it (I avoid it like the plague) I feel I need to paint numbers on my car and add a window net.

I would say-with SA having two loops 410 and 1604, people need to be more specific when discussing inside the loop which one 410 or 1604. The city has grown so much and there are many neighborhoods and business'es inside both loops and outside both loops........go figure.........??

In Houston "inside the loop" is 610, the outer loop is the "Beltway." You can live inside the loop, inside the Beltway, or outside the Beltway. Maybe 1604 needs a name. People who live inside 610 are often referred to as "inner loopers," they're more urban and often despise sprawl. Sound familiar?

inside "the loop" is and always has been 410. 1604 has always been referred to by its numerical designation (e.g., inside/outside 1604).

We say "inside the loop" to mean inside 410. We say "between the loops" to mean between 410 and 1604. We say "outside 1604" for, lol, outside 1604. I am surprised no one mentioned between the loops in all the discussion.
