* East Downtown Houston (EaDo) - Separating East End from Downtown, this area is the neighborhood just south of the Eastex Freeway (US 59) when passing the Central Business District (CBD). Old Chinatown, one of the two in the city, is located here. Also located here is the other (good) football team, the Houston Dynamo, and their stadium, BBVA Compass Stadium. Also of note is a very large, old sign reading simply "WALD" which often shows up in Instagram's of Houston as an item of mystery [[note]]It was built in the 50's by Mr. Wald and did and does sell office furniture, if you must know[[/note]]. The area has had its ups and downs. On the one hand, it is home to many industrial warehouses, some abandoned, some still in use, and was for a long time pretty much Houston's version of Skid Row, having a huge homeless population (Most of them have since moved on to Midtown). On the other hand, the area is becoming a center for revitalization, gentrification, and revival. For example, a large artists community is springing up here, and growing all the time. There may come a day when, for comparison, if Neartown is Houston's Greenwich, [=EaDo=] is its Williamsburg.

* Midtown - Everything between the Gulf Expressway wrapping around downtown's southwest, the Southwest Expressway, and Spur 527 (along with a few buildings to the south of Southwest, and a small area of condos, townhouses and the like north of Bagby Street). Originally split between the Third and Fourth Wards, the area was once an upscale residential neighborhood, till businesses pushed them out. It later morphed into Little Saigon, as Vietnamese residents arrived and this lead to a transformation of the neighborhood. Now, the neighborhood is a middle to upper class majority white neighborhood, with some remainder of its former history as a Vietnamese community, with a lot of businesses thrown in for good measure. It has also recently become pretty much ground zero for the homeless, so it never hurts to keep some pocket change when traveling through.

* Kashmere Gardens - [[JustForFun/IThoughtItMeant No, not]] [[Music/LedZeppelin THAT Kashmir]]. An often-overlooked residential area north of the Fifth Ward, and noticeably nicer. Like the adjacent Northside Village, its eastern edge is heavily industrialized, most notably the MASSIVE Rail-Corridor on Liberty.
