"Great area, reminiscent of Boston"
This little stretch is occupied entirely by town homes. In the recent development of the area, these town homes, apartments and condos have gone up in an effort to bring people back to the area. The town homes themselves are very clean, very new, very posh-looking. There are not a lot of trees, nor is there a lot of space, but a young couple or adult looking for a trendy place to live will not be disappointed here. While the area has been going through renovations in recent years, there are areas very close to this that have not yet been renovated. It is fairly close to a warehouse district, some abandoned some not, and the W Gray/Webster split accentuates this division. But, don't let this discourage you from visiting or living here. The area is wonderful, close enough to Montrose and downtown Houston to be considered fairly liberal and alternative, and it has a style all it's own. In a trip to Washington D.C. (the Georgetown area), the buildings they had there were similar to the ones here in the 4th Ward. It's a long street with buildings crammed next to each other, red brick and all. W Webster just lacks the same tree coverage. But cleanliness is not an issue here, and sound pollution is easily avoided. The streets surrounding W Webster are never filled with traffic. The nightlife in the area is nothing short of spectacular by Houston standards; bars and clubs are a few minutes away, as well as Midtown. Ben Taub Hospital is also close by and the Medical district is just a little further than that, including world-renowned Texas Children's Hospital.
