STS062-094-092 Houston, Texas, U.S.A. March 1994
The central business district is the point of convergence of an extensive highway network that services Houston, especially the eastern half of the city, in this west-looking photograph. The highly reflective, heavily industrialized corridor extending eastward from downtown borders the Houston Ship Channel. Much of the internal, grid street network shows a classic checkerboard design. The lower San Jacinto River system that includes muddy Lake Houston flows southward into the northwest corner of Galveston Bay.
