Greenspoint is a 12 square mile district North of downtown Houston at the intersection of Beltway 8 and I-45. There is a mall, hotels, businesses, and thousands of apartment buildings in this area. According to Wikipedia the district is home to 3,000 businesses, 55,000 employees, and nearly 900,000 residents. It also has 18,000sf of office and retail space. Back in the 80's and early 90's it was called "Gunspoint" because of the high crime rate. The area is mainly low income and working class apartments. My sister used to live here, and I would not recommend it. Cheap rent, but you definitely get what you pay for.
There are a lot of oil and gas companies here along with many warehouses, because of it's location close to the airport.
