Houston is a city constantly in flux, redefining itself, rethinking itself. In a community and – letâs face it â a society constantly on the move, we can sometimes lose historical and cultural experiences along the way.Â From Astroworld’s carousel (left) to the downtown Houston Foleyâs department store, from homes and offices to hotels, stores, and churches, there are places, industries, experiences that once defined Houston that arenât here anymore.
On this edition ofÂ Houston Matters, we ask longtime Houstonians whatâs not here that you wish still wasâ¦and we ask new Houstonians what we donât have that you wish we did.
Also: KUHFâs Laura Isensee and Andrew Schneider join us to discuss concerns over arrangements between financial institutions and universities to distribute student financial aid.
Plus:Â A pair of Houston arts publications are merging. We consider what the merger means for them, and for the Houston art scene.
