Love our home - mid century homes with big trees and lots of character. Our neighbors are all so friendly as well. Wish there was more development and they could finally tear down Westbury square, which is a major eyesore. The space has the potential to be amazing! We took a gamble that this area would see development in the coming years. Hope we aren’t too far off the mark.

I have lived in Westbury, Houston all my life my parents bought this home in the 60's and I've attended schools in the area I'm now 55. Our neighborhood association is one of the best ones in Houston. We are privately patrolled by Constables office usually the same 4 officers and we have a monthly meeting to discuss any problems/concerns or issues. Most of the families living here have owned their homes for 20+ years I would say since I know most of the ones surrounding me. It's a safe place where people jog and walk their dogs around at night. Westbury is 6 miles from the NRG Stadium, 5 miles from Galleria, 7 miles from the Texas Medical Center and 2 miles from Meyerland Shopping centers.
I have lived in Westbury Houston for 25 years and loved every minute of it! Never experienced any crimes nor bad experiences. I now live here with two teenage daughters and schools are good.
