Houston, emerged as a settlement for the year 1836, when brothers John and Augustus Allen put in place a shopping center that Houston was named in honor of a general named Samuel Houston who later became president of Texas; with the time the city grew up in what we now see, huge skyscrapers, shopping malls and many hotels.
Life in Houston
At times, the city seems to be a desert because the vast majority of its buildings and skyscrapers are inter connected by underground passages filled with restaurants and shops created to avoid the heat and rain. However, at night the city seems to come alive.
The city of Houston has important neighborhoods like Montrose (where the gay scene is concentrated), Houston Heights (residential area) and District Museum.
