I like living in Near Northside because of the close proximity to everything. Everything is accessible and the neighborhood is growing. I have lived here my whole life and I have seen many changed. I would like to see the homes stay how they are because it gives character to the neighborhood. There are somethings that need to change though. The schools are decent but need improvement. The parks need improvement.

Living In Near Northside I believe is a great neighborhood. It is right in the center of Houston and only a 5-10 minute drive to downtown. There are also may great restaurants to eat from.
There are many parks and facilities in which people choose to work out at. There are gyms, warehouses, and outside groups that get together to exercise. There is also a run every first Sunday of every month. There is something going on in the neighborhood about fitness almost every weekend. We have a GNC and other vitamin and supplement stores available.Choosing what location of park or public place to go to will determine the use and openness of these drug items. There are parks and facilities that ban them and also parks and facilities that do not. Hospitals are close because we are right outside of downtown and close to everything. Many clinics are around the corner and offer 24 hour service.
