This is the city’s corporate heart, home to abstract art and post-modern corporate monuments connected by a labyrinth of climate-controlled tunnels and skywalks. A 3-mile walk takes you through the buildings, underground, and high into the sky.

Most of the retail left downtown (which isn’t much) has found a home in this two-block, glass-enclosed shopping mall beneath the city’s skyscrapers. Stores tend towards the low-end, but the food court has some gems.

Discovery Green was heralded as Houston’s Millennium Park. Millennium Park it is not, but, in the sense that Houston is a smaller, less-dense version of Chicago, maybe that comparison can hold true.

T.W. House Jr. ran his father's bank, the T.W. House Bank, until its bankruptcy. The marker sits right outside the U.S. Customhouse. Ironically, it seems as if both his and his father's homes were demolished for federal buildings.

This building’s Art Deco detailing may suggest that it was built in the 1930s. But it wasn’t. Alfred C. Finn, always conservative, choose Art Deco for Houston’s first major post-World War II office building in 1947.
