Can anyone tell safe area to live with some indians around

by mohan_gopal

Hi,
I am going to travel to work in houston from India and my office is in Hollister Road
Houston, TX 77040

I will be coming with my wife. I have heard quite bad about houston crime statistics,and so am wary - Could someone please provide names of locations which would be safe to live with some indians around and not too far from my place of work.

Thanks!

LOL, India outsourcing to Houston.

Houston is a VERY large city and has an decent Indian population. One of our members may give you mor info as i'm not sure how long Hollister Rd is. It could be 10 miles long
Best of luck

Well you picked the right city in TX. There's a Little India area in Houston which has the largest Asian population in the state.

"Little India" - Generally Hillcroft Ave. between US 59 and Richmond.

For indian food, I like Bombay Sweets (vegetarian buffet), Raja Sweets, Sri Bhalaji Bhavan (all three at the intersection of Hillcroft and Harwin). A friend highly recommends the lunch buffet at Ashoka, on Hillcroft just north of Westpark. Others have their favorites, plenty to choose from.

Thanks !! the answers were so quick....:)
This is the exact area for my work:
3950 Hollister St, Houston, TX 77040

I am not so much worried about food as about a decent and "safe" apartment, with some indian community for my wife to get her friends....

Would be grateful if you could suggest some areas. The area around the address above is strict no-no for living due to its crime rate...

The Hillcroft area is where Desis usually hang out, but most live in the Sugar Land area for the schools and a generally better neighborhood. There are some restaurants and temples in that area as well.
Hollister is off of 290, which would be on the northwest side, just past Beltway 8. Getting between these two areas would require a trip on the Sam Houston Toll Road, with two tolls, along its busiest section unfortunately.
Quite a few Indian college students live very near UH as well, but this isn't really a family-oriented area.

Best way to find a safe neighborhood is to call your car insurance agent and find out which zip code has the cheapest car insurance.

No matter where you'll live, you'll have a long commute in your car.

No matter where you live, your wife have to drive in a car to meet other Indians.

Houston is designed for living out of your car. Actually, you would get along with the residents better if you had a truck, and the bigger, the better.

If you don't think that you can rely on public security forces in your chosen community, but have to rely on private security forces, then I suggest that you buy your wife a gun and enroll her in agun safety class. Guns remain popular in Texas.

Good luck and best wishes.

ROTFLMAO

As an Indian in the Houston area, I can say there are quite a few areas with Desis around. I live in Sugar Land, which was already mentioned, but there are few apartments here. We've got family and friends all over mostly SW Houston -- Alief, off Hwy. 6, etc. There are some (but not many) in Katy and the Woodlands.

Travel Tips for Houston

Texas Longhorns

by XenoHumph

Texas has a type of cow that you find nowhere else in the world, the longhorns. As the name indicates, these cows are famous for their impressive huge horns! They descend from cows brought by spanish conquerors in the XVI-XVII th centuries that went wild for a while (the cows, not the spanish, although that could be debated...) and were domesticated again. They almost went extinct by the end of the XIX th century. They were saved in extremis by a few ranchers seeing in them a symbol of Texas but also their potential for breeding with other types of cows. Longhorns are indeed very tough animals that survive well in the hard and dry western Texas. They are now ubiquitous in all of Texas.

There are other pictures of longhorns in my "Maas nursery" off-the-beaten-path tip and on my "Hurricane Humor" travelogue.

Mercury Room

by kd_baby about Mercury Room

This club offers two stories and two dance floors. The top floor is hip-hop music, and the bottom floor features a live band. The last night I went the band was playing old 70s and 80s music, and handful of new pop songs. There were quite a few pretty girls that'll show up at this club.

The drinks are expensive and the glasses are small and trendy. They don't make the drinks in any special way to warrant the higher price. Therefore, although I recommend this place, I would say go drinking somewhere else first. Other than dress to impress, I'm not really sure what the dress code was.

Cucina Italiana

by twentysix.two about Crapitto's Cucina Italiana

This Italian restaurant has a cozy, neighborhood feel near the heart of the Galleria area. When the weather cools down look forward to dining on the outside patio underneath huge 160-year old oak trees.

For more casual dining, eat in the bar area where most of the locals hang out with the friendly bartenders. Instead of an entree, I opt for appetizers. My usual order consists of the Crab Cakes and Tomatoes Caprese (with the buffalo milk mozzarella). Sometimes I will also get a cup of the Seafood Bisque.

General tip on Houston restaurants

by XenoHumph about Where to look for restaurants

There are lots of excellent restaurants in Houston. Area where there is a lot of choice are:
Rice Village (West of Rice University campus)
Montrose and Westheimer streets area
Westheimer and PostOak Blvd area (expensive restaurants there, Western Houston, Galleria area)

The website www.b4-u-eat.com gives reviews on all possible restaurants in the Houston area! If you haven't found all you wanted on VT, try that!

Battleship TEXAS

by msbrandysue

From the website:
The TEXAS is the last of the battleships, patterned after HMS Dreadnought, that participated in World War (WW) I and II. She was launched on May 18, 1912 from Newport News, Virginia. When the USS TEXAS was commissioned on March 12,1914, she was the most powerful weapon in the world, the most complex product of an industrial nation just beginning to become a force in global events.

In 1916, TEXAS became the first U.S. battleship to mount antiaircraft guns and the first to control gunfire with directors and range-keepers, analog forerunners of today's computers. In 1919, TEXAS became the first U.S. battleship to launch an aircraft.

In 1925, the TEXAS underwent major modifications. She was converted to oil-fired boilers, tripod masts and a single stack were added to the main deck, and the 5" guns that bristled from her sides were reduced in number and moved to the main deck to minimize problems with heavy weather and high seas. Blisters were also added as protection against torpedo attack.

The TEXAS received the first commercial radar in the US Navy in 1939. New antiaircraft batteries, fire control and communication equipment allowed the ship to remain an aging but powerful unit in the US naval fleet. In 1940, Texas was designated flagship of US Atlantic Fleet. The First Marine Division was founded aboard the TEXAS early in 1941. April 21, 1948 the Texas was decommissioned.

The TEXAS holds the distinguished designation of a National Historic Landmark and a National Mechanical Engineering Landmark.
-----------------------------------------------------------

While pulling into the left side of the San Jacinto State Park you will see different monuments and a small cemetary. The roads lead to the battleship that you can't possibly miss. It is HUGE. My friend and I decided not to get on the ship although for about $10 you can do so. If you have children I would HIGHLY recommend it as it's like a huge playground. There are different levels and stairs to climb. I believe you can go down below but the stairs are very steep if I remember well from my childhood visit.

Remember that Texas summers are HOT and so will the ship be. So, be careful when touring the area.

*They have a good gift shop!!

Here you can see more of the markers, monument, museum, and the Battleship.
