March Theme Day – Favorite Part of Town

This month’s City Daily Photo Community theme is “Your Favorite Part of Town”.

Easy! The Heights. As the oldest planned community in Houston, this one time “street car community” is where I call home. As you can see in the photo, you can still have a bit of small town feel within the big city.

It’s eclectic and functional and only three miles from my downtown office. It has art galleries and studios, funky shops and antique dealers, highly regarded restaurants and icehouses. I get my hair cut in a barbershop that has been in a movie and I can even get my player piano repaired here (If I had one, that is). It has oak tree lined streets and the occasional century old Victorian house.

Sure… it has its dodgy bits, but it has character and history and it seems I discover something new about it as I wander about.

  1. Perhaps best of all, it has Carter & Cooley's deli, where they serve the best BLT anywhere. (Where's your barber shop, and what movie was it in?)

  2. This looks great. Such a small town feel in the middle of a big city.

  3. Dodgy bits are what make a place interesting.

  4. TexAg71: Don's Barbershop on 11th was used as a locale for the 1998 movie Rushmore.
