Ed was a very nice host that greeted my father and I in front of the house. The space is an addition to the main house. We never needed to use the main house, since the room has its own entrance, shower, restroom, fridge, microwave, water boiler, iron, blow dryer, fan, couch, and bed. He set up a pad on the floor for me without request. It was a pleasant surprise. The neighborhood was not particularly for us. In the morning there was a man on the street corner yelling he is not going back to jail, shortly after a little more distant sound, there was four gunshots then minutes later there were sirens. After a bit of research, I found this to be a repeat occurrence. We did have a safe stay though. There are steel bars covering the windows and four locks between the metal screen door and door. There are also security cameras at the front entry.

I needed a place super last minute due to my job's lodging team being behind on bookings. Ed replied to me immediately and even waited outside with the keys as I slowly drove down his street. It's a secluded room with it's own bathroom and that's all I really needed. Ed is a dedicated man to his community, I am a bit sad I didn't get to interact with him a little more since I was just looking for a bed and right back to work in the AM. I am from originally from NYC so the area didn't really bother me. I've seen it all. I think some of the more bougie, bubble wrapped folks may be a bit skeptical, but everything is fine! And as someone else mentioned, Ed has cameras all over. And I could see my car from my window if that helps. :)

I work for the Baylor College of Medicine International Pediatric AIDS Initiative at Texas Children's Hospital and I love travelling and meeting new people! I'm very involved in the community, through both Rotary and the Emancipation Economic Development Council. I'm also a documentary film producer, comic book author, and co-founder of the Houston Global Health Collaborative. I was very active in the local response to Hurricane Harvey and even hosted an evacuee family at my Airbnb. I love showing people around Houston and telling them about the unique history of the Third Ward community.
