"Quiet subdivisions surrounded by parks and convenient roads"
Located just northeast of US 59 and Loop 610, the East Little York/ Homestead neighborhoods have a lot to offer. Apartments in the area range from modestly priced to lavish and nice, but if you are single or a young couple, this area has plenty of housing options. Retail and shopping are also in high supply, as well as being so close to 59, 610 and 45. Homes in the area range from smaller, ranch-style homes to larger, more expensive homes, but either way there is something for every budget and household. HISD operates in the neighborhood, which as I've said before, is not the greatest school district, but the schools in this area are a little better than average. This has been a predominately African-American neighborhood in the past, but it has become more diverse in recent years; though, this matters little. People are people. The truly wonderful thing about this neighborhood is it's spectacular array of parks and recreational activities. Tidwell Park is to the south, JD Trotter Park sits at the eastern edge of the neighborhood, and the majestic Smokey Jasper Park is at the very northern edge of the neighborhood. Also, Little York and Homestead cross in the middle of the neighborhood, providing terrific access to any part. While Homestead is quite busy most of the time, it is still one of the easiest ways to get around East Little York.
