  1. I'm sure glad they are making improvements. Every time I ride with my kids and we go through that tunnel past the BIZARRE display windows I wonder why on earth nobody has required the owners of the concession to spruce things up.
  2. Thanks for putting that in perspective for me... it's certainly true that there's crime everywhere. Blue Valley, I know that crime wasn't in Walnut Bend (see my original post), but the comments linked to the article WERE mainly about Walnut Bend. Hence my interest.
  3. An article in the Chron today about a murder in a neighborhood south of Walnut Bend stirred a flurry of comments about crime in Walnut Bend: http://www.chron.com/disp/story.mpl/front/5381378.html I was looking for more informed opinions. What do you think about Walnut Bend? We are looking for houses and that is one area we are considering. I have little kids so safety is certainly a concern. Thanks for any feedback.
  4. I must say I find these homes at these prices tempting. I don't like the look of SCR very much, but an inexpensive home on the east side of the community might be a pretty nice solution to our current where-to-live conundrum.
  5. We were at the Chik-fil-A in Pearland a couple of weeks ago and it was raining hard... an employee with an umbrella walked us out to our car!! I was totally shocked. That was lovely customer service.
  6. Sounds like that could get a little steamy in the sun, n'est-ce pas?
  7. Thanks. This week I'm off Pearland. But I change my mind almost daily so I'll probably be wildly interested again in 3 days. I'll keep your info for the next mood swing.
  8. twgreen, I just tried your AOL address and it didn't work. I'd like to get in touch and have a look at Southern Trails. How can I reach you?
  9. I'm entering this thread late, but here's my 2 cents. I don't think any of these downtown projects (pavilions or bayou place) will really succeed if the target is mostly local people. We need to attract tourists. It kills me everytime I hear someone from outside Texas raving about San Antonio and RIVERWALK!!! Houston has much more to offer than San Antonio, but it's not packaged up as neatly and pleasingly as riverwalk, so tourists can't figure out where they're "supposed" to go. We need to copy SA. We need to turn the Bayou into Riverwalk and call it something else and suddenly we'll have a downtown scene.
  10. Thanks for the information everyone... very helpful. I'm interested in learning whatever I can about various Pearland communities & schools, so I welcome any and all opinions.
  11. We have been looking at houses in Pearland in the 180-200K range. There are some really nice places. I'm wondering, have prices there actually dropped? I feel like I didn't see so much for so little when we were looking a few years ago. Is this the subprime effect? Also, does anyone have any recommendations regarding Silverlake vs. SCR, or other areas to consider? We would like a place that's a few years old, with more mature trees. Thanks for any advice!!
  12. thanks, I wasn't aware of that thread.. I'll post over there, too.
  13. We have been looking at houses in Pearland in the 180-200K range. There are some really nice places. I'm wondering, have prices there actually dropped? I feel like I didn't see so much for so little when we were looking a few years ago. Is this the subprime effect? What do you think... are we likely to lose money buying a house at that price in Pearland? I can only think property values have to go up, despite all the new construction. Areas like Silverlake are so convenient, and the schools are good, I've heard. Am I being unduly optimistic? Thanks for any opinions.
  14. I posted that... I said they seemed unpopular because I saw a post on here from someone who said they hated these houses. However, I can say that I love mine. In my opintion, design is great, construction is great. I love my house.
  15. They're putting a rails-to-trails trail through Riverside Terrace. Should be great.
  16. HoustonRealtor, it sounds like you would be the right person to talk to if we are looking for a house in Westbury or similar-priced neighborhoods. How could I get in touch with you? Thanks
  17. I just saw your post; I like hearing such positivity about Riverside Terrace. We bought one of the (seemingly-hated-by-this-forum) Urban Lofts on Calumet a couple of years ago. I have felt dedicated to this neighborhood but I'm having doubts lately. Someone was just (literally moments ago) shot outside our house in Riverside Park. There is an endless problem with other neighborhood residents throwing trash all over the neighborhood. There's broken glass and condoms all over the jungle gym in the park. This urban mama is starting to actually long for the suburbs, for a safer, cleaner place to raise my kids. But I sure do love the commute from here. I don't have much money (hence the townhouse purchase) so options to move are limited. Those police lights outside right now make me wonder though.
