Earlier today we introduced a new category to this year’s Swamplot Awards for Houston Real Estate, which means 5 of them have now been opened for your nominations: Favorite Houston Design Cliché, Best Demolition, Best Houston Transplant, the Ground-Floor Retail Award, and Houston’s Least Recognizable Neighborhood. And now we’re ready to introduce the sixth category. If you guessed that it’s for Houston’s Most Recognizable Neighborhood, go ahead and give yourself an award.
Imagine you were driven blindfolded to some portion of the greater Houston region, then had the blindfold removed and had to guess where you were based on what you could now see. What neighborhood would have the most obvious characteristics, clues, and tells? And what are they? Or do you have a different idea about this category? What makes a neighborhood recognizable, and which one around these parts has that quality in spades?
Tell us the neighborhood you’d like to nominate for this award in the comments section below or through Swamplot’s tip line; be sure to include convincing explanations for your choice. The most compelling, clever, or entertaining nominations will have the best chance of making the final ballot. Again, nominees need not be located strictly inside Houston’s municipal boundaries.
You have until midnight next Tuesday, December 10, to suggest nominees. You’ll find all the rules for the nominating process here. What’ve you got?
