"Quiet little steal north of I-10"

If you're coming from I-10, it may take a while to get into the neighborhood, but once you do, you will not regret it. Blankenship is just off Kempwood, whose beautiful trees and smooth roads can be cause to go out for a drive late at night. The intersections are a little crowded because of construction and the area isn't great, but this neighborhood is truly a hidden gem. Small ranch homes line Blankenship with quaint yards, unobtrusive lighting, and because it is tucked away from main intersections, there is not a lot of traffic, your kids will be safe playing in the yard, and there is a definite absence of noise at night. Neighbors are friendly and children can be seen playing together during the day. In order to get much shopping done you will need to travel back to I-10 where there is ample shopping, including an HEB, Chase and Bank of America, Best Buy and other nice retail stores. Across the freeway, there is Memorial City Mall, a favorite attraction to many Houstonians, Memorial Hermann Hospital, among the best in the nation, and the access to I-10 gives you free reign of the city. Access to Bingle (which turns in Voss at I-10) and Blalock, I-10 is never far away. Cost of living here is relatively low compared to other neighborhoods in either direction, and as these houses are getting older, they make great fixer-homes, which drives up resale value for those that need a quick place to stay. Schools in the district are fair, though there are other districts that hold better academic scores.
