"Quiet street in a rough area"

A friend and I got lost in this section of town once. I remember Billingsley because we made a joke that it sounded much too posh to be in this area. The fact that we got lost is a little confusing looking back as well. It's a grid. North to south, east to west. It should've been simple. And certainly not worthy of pulling out the Key Map like we did. It was nearing sunset and as we drove down the street, there was a beautiful light that shone through the trees. Then there were sections of the street where we were blinded because there was no tree coverage. The houses are small and very cheap. The whole area has been the subject of some discussion in Houston. There is a high dropout rate, incomes are dropping to well below the poverty line and as these things happen, the standard of living drops to somewhat unacceptable levels. But, this street has maintained a certain amount of cleanliness that is lacking elsewhere in Northside Village. The stores and general experience in Northside Village has taken to achieving the bare minimum to stay open. The parks are regularly maintained, but only essential things are taken care of. The extra step to make them special are looked over in favor of lowering the budgets. Morale in this area seems to be at an all-time low, and the homes and businesses certainly reflect that.
