Itâ€™s neighborhood day here at Swampies Nominations Central! This morning we introduced the 7th category in this year’s Swamplot Awards for Houston Real Estate. Hereâ€™s the complete list of our categories so far: Favorite Houston Design ClichÃ©, Best Teardown, Parking Lot of the Year, Drive-Thru of the Year, Walmart of the Year, the Washington Ave Award, and Most Improved Neighborhood. Keep those nominations coming! Are you ready for what’s next?
A lot of attention was focused on Houston’s designated historic districts in 2010. But really now, is that fair? Together, these areas make up only a tiny portion of this city’s considerable land mass. What’s it take for less-historic areas to get some attention?
Well, how about a Swampie award category of their own? That’s right: In this category of the Swamplot Awards, we aim to honor Houston’s Least Historic Neighborhood. Now, it’s one thing for an area not to be particularly historic — or even not to appear to have that potential. But what neighborhoods really excel in that regard? What parts of town would you nominate to be considered for the honor of Least Historic Neighborhood? And why?
