Spring Branch East is the perfect place to live especially if you work in downtown Houston. It is literally 10 minutes away! There are plenty of shopping centers in the area with grocery stories, dry cleaners, salon, you name it! I love this area because of how close it is to everything. It is less then a 10 minute drive to Memorial City Mall and Memorial Hermann Hospital. The only issue I have with this area is that the roads need to be fixed. There are plenty of pot holes around here. Otherwise, it is fairly safe and I would recommend to anyone looking to move to this area.

I have lived in this neighborhood for a year and a half now and really think it is often misunderstood and underrated. Some people see the areas that are older or have a higher concentration of immigrants and and ask me if I feel safe and honestly I do. I’ve never had an issue here, not even walking to and from the bus stop late at night after work. There are some great little cafes and taquerias, and where I live there’s a man who walks around all Saturday hawking tamales that are fantastic. I don’t even want to imagine how much money I’ve given him over the last 15 months but those things are good.
I know there’s bound to be crime around but I’ve never seen or been a victim of it. There are occasional gunshots but I’ve learned it’s just from neighbors firing off into the sky to celebrate.
There’s some toughness around the edges but this is a neighborhood with charm and history and character that is easy to see when one avoids judging by bias or by sight alone.
Amazing area! Love it!
9 min drive to the galleria 5 Min to city Centre 6 Min to the memorial mall and hospitals. Literally underrated the spring branch East is quite and no crime!
