Does anyone know much about zip code 77067? This would be about 1-2 miles NW of the 8 and the 45, east of Veterans Memorial, and about 8 miles west of the airport (GWB?). Specifically, is this what you would consider a good area (low crime, good schools, decent property values, etc.)? It appears to still be considered real Houston, and is south of Spring.

We were just about ready to go with a house in Cypress, but we did the commute drive into downtown Houston (down the 290) a couple days and decided to look for something closer. Cypress seemed really nice and just about everyone here has nice things to say about Cypress & Spring (for the NW area). The 77067 area seems to have a lot of new areas (less than 5 years old), but I haven't been able to find any info here on this particular area -- unless it is known by another name?

Thanks!

Are you talking about Rankin Road area, Walters Road and such?

The areas east of Veterans Memorial are in Spring School District. Spring is not bad, but it is not as popular as Klein. The areas south of 1960 are not going to appreciate well at all. Basically they aren't "going anywhere." Nearby Greenspoint is considerd ghetto, and has been nicknamed gunspoint for years. They tried to clean it up unsuccessfully. I don't think anything south of 1960 in that area is really a very positive investment.

You might check on the Houston Architecture info forum, there is some discussion there on those areas, go to www.houstonarchitecture.info/haif/ and search there as well.

Specifically, it would be the (upside down) triangle consisting of Veterans Memorial, TC Jester, and Spears -- which does include Walters Road (plus some of the new-build area east of TC Jester). It is about 1-2 miles south of 1960.

Thank you for the link to Houston Architecture! It appears to have some sections dedicated to specific neighborhoods both inside and outside of Houston. I will have to do some research there as well.
