In order to appreciate the success of a city you must first know how it was founded. Houston Texas was founded a few months after the Texas War for Independence (where colonists rebelled against the Mexican government to claim the province of Texas) in 1836 (2015, June 20). Two brothers New York City real estate promoters, J. K. and A. C. Allen, bought 6,642 acres of land from a Texas settler known as T.F.L. Parrot (2015, June 20). The Allen brothers decided to name their newly acquired land after the hero of the Texas War, General Sam Houston. Colonists began flocking to the city to be for its busy seaports and railroads, and Houston was advertised as “where 17 railroads meet the sea.”

I am not originally from Los Angeles; I grew up in the Inland Empire, but Los Angeles always fascinated me.
Broken Heritage My heritage isn’t peachy or as amazing as everyone else’s, it’s broken and there isn’t enough tape to put it back together.

When I walked into the visitors’ center and walked around I got to see work of many student on Long Island, which I thought was pretty cool.

Carson was thinking it would be boring because he would rather be indoors.
