It's like a bad mug shot that dogs a celebrity for years or a photo of a politician in a comprimising situation.
Being from Calgary, I envy the downtown parking! Obviously things in Houston have changed, beautiful city!

Wish that old photo would go away. But it does show how much things have changed on that side of downtown.

Yes that magazine photo of Houston is the 'Nick Nolte mugshot' of the city.

I think anyone with half a brain knows that nowadays Houston is a world class city with tons of amenities for just about anyone.
