In downtown Houston, with just an hour before 1st place Houston Astros MLB game and short three blocks away from Minute Maid Park, lucky me found ‘after 6p is free’ parking available along Caroline Street at Texas Avenue.

Downtown Houston at 1301 Texas Ave.

Spent a very pleasant spring day in Downtown Houston on Friday, March 24th at the old Fed Bank building at 1301 Texas Avenue. The original Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas Branch building was built in 1922.  This neoclassic designed 3 story building is now home to the Houston Area Urban League and houses small business incubator, The Houston Economic Empowerment Center.

Rainy Day at Main & Preston

Another rainy day in Houston at Main Street & Preston. METRORail Red Line runs along Main in the Historic part of Downtown Houston. The tall building in background is the Hotel Icon originally built in 1911 as the Union National Bank Building, one of the state’s most prominent financial institutions at the time.

Downtown’s Market Square Clock Tower

The Louis & Anne Friedman Clock Tower, aka Market Square Clock Tower at 301 Travis is across the street from the Historic Market Square Park. The postmodern 65 foot tall clock tower is in the heart of Houston’s busy Historic District.

start when brothers August Chapman Allen and John Kirby Allen from Madison County, NY stepped ashore in August 1836.

Historic-Market-Square-ParkMarket Square Park’s a fun place for an afternoon or evening adventure, with eats, drinks and music close by, and it’s dog-friendly with large and small dog-runs.

Downtown’s Rice Lofts

The Rice Lofts, formerly The Post Rice Lofts, at 909 Texas Avenue & Main are in the heart of downtown Houston, and are the result of the renovation of the historic Rice Hotel.

President John F. Kennedy stayed briefly here on his final visit to Houston on Thursday, November 21, 1963. Houston Public Media has the story here:
