LOCATION: The Near Northside Neighborhood, located just north of Houston's downtown and connected through Main Street, is easily accessible from I-45 and I-10. A portion of the neighborhood, from I-10 to boundary along Main Street, is part of the Main Street Revitalization Corridor.
COMMUNITY DESCRIPTION AND HISTORY: A major rail yard lies on the neighborhoods southern edge leaving only two streets to connect the northern and southern half of the neighborhood. There is also rail yard that defines the eastern border of the community. The southern two thirds of the area consist of older Victorian-era gabled wood frame homes that once housed European immigrants of the 1880s and 1890s. North Main and Fulton are the major commercial arteries of the neighborhood.
The northern third includes Lindale Park, with its large lots and more substantial homes. Moody Park is an important gathering place in the center of the community, as is the Davis High School - Marshall Middle School - Carnegie Library complex in the southern part of the community.
