Everything posted by Houston?

  1. Is this a pipe dream? Where is it going to be located?
  2. What's Cosmo? Do you have any renderings of it?
  3. I just got back home from Houston. Houston is so freaking huge! The size puts Atlanta to shame. Oh yea, Houston does have alot of blacks and alot of everything else. Much more diverse than Atlanta and more stuff to do. I went to Pleasure Pier in Galveston, went to the Galleria, and tried some restaurants in Chinatown. Houston got some fine sistas and they drive expensive cars. I went to Bambou and M-Lounge for the nightlife and had a good time. Houston is a cool city and reminds me of LA a little bit. I didn't want to come back home. Houston's black culture is on par with Atlanta's IMO.
  4. I went to an HBCU. Most are, even TxSU (with the small Hispanic %), still 85%+ black. That's a different story. I understand what you are saying about Atlanta because it is very segregated to say the least. I dont mind diversity at all, but I just want to know is the black culture in full in effect in Houston like it is here. Trust me diversity doesn't scare me. I don't want to feel like I'm moving to a watered-down black cultured city from Atlanta. I just want to see is Houston's black culture on par and/or similar to Atlanta's and will I be disappointed and robbed by Houston's black culture. That's all.
  5. Thanks posters. I've erased Charlotte and Dallas. Now it's betweeen Atlanta and Houston. Besides jobs, the winning factor between moving to Houston or staying put here (which I hope isn't the case) will be the black culture. If the black cultures are the same, that's fine. If Houston seems to be overshadowed by Mexican culture and seems to have a mediocre black culture compared to Atlanta, I may just have to stay put here. But I will know all of this by the end of the month, hopefully.
  6. The thing is, here in Atlanta, it's segregated to say the least. Come on, this is Georgia. LOL. I want be around blacks and still stay true to my culture through social events and what nots but I don mind a little diversity.
  7. I've heard from friends that the party scene in Houston is not on par with Atlanta's. I will find out at the end of month.
  8. I'm 30 and single. I'd just looked at the website and I must say that I am very impressed. Houston's AA nightlife doesn't seem pretentious and stuck-up like Atlanta's AA nightlife. It seems more fun. Hopefully I will visit at the end of the month.
  9. It has really lost its luster. How is the nightlife? Atlanta's nightlife is a little played out and ghetto to me.
  10. Hey guys. Thanks for the replies even though I'm very very very late on the appreciation. LOL. I'm still torn. I really want to move to Houston considering that the economy is much better there than it is here. Due to that, many blacks from Atlanta are moving to Houston. Hopefully, the influx of blacks to Houston from Atlanta will give me that similar black vibe in Houston if I were to move to there.
  11. Thanks for the replies. I didnt try to come off as racist but I just thats one thing I like about Atlanta...its black culture. Being that Im thinking about settling in Houston or the other cities I was trying to see if I could get the same black experience in Houston as in Atlanta. I didnt even know Houston had a large black population though.
  12. I'm moving from Atlanta in a year. I'm tied between Dallas, Houston, and Charlotte. As a black man I will miss Atlanta AA culture. If I decide on Houston will I get that same AA culture there that I have here in Atlanta.
  13. I've seen on city-data where a poster said something about third outlet coming to the area. I have no idea on any locations.
  14. Thanks you guys, but I wanted to know will they get built or have they been cancelled.
  15. Can anyone elaborate on the following retail projects proposed for Houston: -Regent Square -BLVD Place -River Oaks District -others
