That's where I was raised and I have no complaints. The part of fifth ward that I was raised in had no drama. We were almost like a family. We played with the other children. Our parents knew one another.

Was raised here. It's the poverty, but it is like home. Very comfortable here but it needs improvement.
Houston is the most diverse place in the United States, it also offers a lot of job and educational opportunities. This area is an amazing place because unlike California there are no earthquakes nor tornadoes. The environment is not only clean but friendly and warm.
