"Nice, but has gone down"
This area (Westheimer & the Beltway) is a GREAT location for shopping, dining, and nightlife, but it tends to get pretty noisy. Even though this is a smaller street, there is still quite a bit of traffic due to the location. Neighbors in this area tend to get noisy, with quite a bit of arguing and fighting in the apartment complexes. For a while, there was a pest problem, but I hope that they have gotten this under control. Its a good place for singles/recent college graduates who are looking for their first apartment. I would recommend moving elsewhere if you are looking to start a family though.
