My Block(s) at the end of Montrose


Recommended Posts

So I live in a weird geographic spot in Houston. I live in the southern most portion of Montrose, where the Museum District and the upper class neighborhoods of South Hampton and Broadmore reside several blocks south. If those words mean nothing to you, then I live a few blocks north off a major freeway (US59) that cuts of the weird, poor, and yuppie from the upper middle class and very wealthy.

So I'm starting off my tour from my apartment which has about a hundred units:

Nice pics! I used to live pretty close to there, in a 4plex at W. Main and Mandell, across from Cafe Artiste at the time. I really liked the neighborhood. You also live pretty close to arguably the best beer store in Houston, D&Q at 806 Richmond.

Thanks. However, I've found D&Q to be over priced, yet had great selection. However, revamped Kroger's and the new HEB have better prices without the great (they have good ) selection.

Can anyone hazard a guess where I live?

Great set, sorry I can't tell if on the "meth house" pictures if those are windows at the bottom? If it has no windows, then I would go crazy being held up in there.. although I guess if that's the case then it would certainly be a good meth house..
