Super Neighborhood 56 - Denver Harbor / Port Houston

Recognized 06.05.2001

Denver Harbor/Port Houston is made up of two distinct but similar neighborhoods located north of the Houston Ship Channel turning basin. The southern portion of the area along Clinton Drive is industrial. The smaller residential area, Port Houston, is laid out on both sides of McCarty Street. It has a mix of residential, commercial and industrial uses. Denver Harbor is primarily residential. Lyons Avenue is the major commercial corridor in Denver Harbor. Although Interstate Highway 10 splits Denver Harbor physically, its identity has remained strong. Both neighborhoods, originally blue collar Anglo neighborhoods, are now predominantly Hispanic.
