Untitled[edit]

The "Gunspoint" nickname is very well known -- personally, I work in the area. While the crime rate has dropped quite a bit, it's still a very notable perception even now. Also, search google for "gunspoint" and 75% of the top 10 refer to Greenspoint. I added back the old line, but I'm not sure the best way to otherwise cite this though -- I'm rather new to editing. Feel free to tell me why/why not. :) Thanks! -DCat22 03:50, 31 May 2007 (UTC)

Stats[edit]

All of the population figures and other stats are for a much larger trade area, NOT for Greenspoint. Use government stats, not a chamber of commerce's figures. Jacksinterweb (talk) 02:27, 10 January 2008 (UTC)

  • The figures were uncited, so I removed them. WhisperToMe (talk) 06:50, 1 July 2010 (UTC)

Article[edit]

At the Houston Public Library Central Library Jesse H. Jones Building Microfilm desk I encountered "Greenspoint Area Scene for outbreak of possibly racially motivated crimes" by Felix Sanchez and Matt Schwartz, Wednesday January 22, 1992 A-9. I thought the article was going to have trends or some information about a notable development, but it seems to be simply news. WhisperToMe (talk) 06:50, 1 July 2010 (UTC)
