Maps are Great

Thickening the stew of comprehending Screwston, Swamplot delves deep into the neighborhoods that make up Montrose. They sure did start in the right place, Houston's cultural center, bohemian slackerdom and swampy idyll. At some point, thinking of the city will have these micro-definitions (aka neighborhoods) in place, but for now we struggle with loosely defined places like Westchase, the Northside and the Third Ward, which can be miles and miles of territory with colloquial beginnings and ends that vary with every conversation.

On a side note, did you know that (greater) Montrose has a Mayor? :)
