He definately brought this upon himself didn't he... Honestly, I don't think any of us would have cared/noticed if he left forever and didn't say anything. Nobody really gets a star treatment on a forum, and to think you should is pretty lame, you know. Personally I am ignoring that hes on the site anymore.

Here's a good photo of Houston's westside..What I love about Houston is that essentially, the west side of town is a huge upscale tapestry of skyscrapers and intimate, walkable urban neighborhoods. You don't see that in any other city, especially not in Atlanta or Dallas, where an entire inland metro area is one huge skyline just as impressive as NYC or Chicago (if you find a view that has all of Houston together in one pano).

Actually, you can see that kind of tapestry in many cities. I know Atlanta has a long list of in-town, urban neighborhoods that are very walkable, and Atlanta is known for having a highrise here and there throughout various neighborhoods in the city. The east side of Atlanta is probably the most like what you described, with one turn-of-the-century neighborhood after another.

You especially DO see the above in Atlanta...

How much people do you think live in this place, it's in MO and it's a edge city of St. Louis. Clayton, MO has less than 13,000 people, but in urban population it may go up a whole lot. Here are some extra pic's of the city.





This is Clayton, and St. Louis, this is one of my favorite pic's of St. Louis it make's it look real big.

Not only does Atlanta have it. But so does Dallas. Especially on the northside and just north of downtown.

I assumed Dallas had it too...but I'm not as familiar with Dallas as I am Atlanta, having only visited Dallas twice. Those neighborhoods are very common in large cities...
