  1. That's close to the present day intersection of Braeswood and Fannin.
  2. The main thing I heard about Playland Park from older family members is that they could only go to the park on Juneteenth because of segregation. I'm guessing it never integrated since it closed in '59.
  3. That endorsement was weird. It reads more like a non endorsement. If they had issues with both candidates, did they really have to act like they spun a wheel and picked one? Couldn't they have been undecided?
  4. My money is on an electronic bulletin sign. I've been seeing more of them going up lately.
  5. A quick look at historical imagery on Google Street View shows a few green street signs having the S present in 2015 and blanked out by 2017 The ones that still have the S were signs installed by the Five Corners Management District. Interesting!
  6. Did it work? Are we a World Class city now? Also, how long until one of these gets hacked to display pornography?

    I was able to access some of the photos using the wayback machine. It's a slow process, but it's the only way now.
  8. I was thinking they would've been finished by now! I hadn't been that way in a couple of months and was wondering if it was complete.
  9. The Cypress Park and Ride already operates like this, correct? There's apartments and retail connected to it.
  10. I think proximity to refineries and the prevailing winds may play a part in why that area hasn't been as quick to develop as points north, south, and west of Houston.

    I hate that. They had quite a few historic photos from the 70s and 80s of Downtown Houston.
  12. It could be worse. They could replace Dilbert with Ben Garrison comics.
  13. I'm not sure where to post this, but 3126 S. MacGregor suffered a small fire during the thunderstorms on 8/10/22. I did see a lightning strike in that direction before the fire. Looks like it was quickly contained and extinguished. I walked down and was able to see firefighters cutting into the roof I presume to gain access to the fire. The structure doesn't look to be in any danger. Hopefully they'll get a check to fix it without deciding to remodel it into something ungainly or decide to demo it.
  14. The house that was there was torn down a few years ago. The house next door is one of the only homes left from the days when that part of Riverside was called Crescent Island because of the oxbow in the bayou.
