"An industrial area"
This area sees I-10 meet back up with the 610 Loop on its east side. Whereas the western portion of these two freeways meeting is a nice area of Houston, this area is a little lacking. There are two subdivisions of small homes in the neighborhood at the north and south end. The area in between the two subdivisions is overtaken by industrial buildings of some sort, though I've never been able to tell exactly. And just like in some movie about the struggles of blue-collar life, there are plenty of bars in and near the area. I don't blame them. The houses and apartments in the area are affordable, but the schools in the area are reason enough not to move there. Shopping and entertainment are in small supply, and with only a few roads to aid your escape from this downtown nightmare, getting out of the area will become a headache quickly. Though, the proximity to both I-10 and 610 does provide the opportunity to get out and do something, should you choose to accept it, but you may need to be more skilled than Ethan Hunt from Mission:Impossible to do so. And negotiating the weaker sides of these two freeways could prove challenging as well. There's not much out this way. I firmly believe that when they put this city together, they intended for you to keep driving passed this area. I think you should.
