The Not-So-Sparkling City by the Sea

corpus christi

I can’t help but love my hometown, but the place has seen much better days. Especially the older parts of town. It’s a damn shame that such once-beautiful houses and beach bungalows are literally rotting, and that almost every other business is shuttered. I do not have much hope for the future of Corpus Christi, a place dubbed the “Sparkling City by the Sea,” a motto that most people laugh at. Sure, there are lovely parts of the city, but each time I come back, I see fewer of them.

    Yeah, it is a shame that so many home owners (or rent paying tenants) in CC don’t have enough pride to clean up their yards and take care of their abodes. I know a family of immigrants from Mexico who have the sharpest looking lot in the neighborhood—it is their pride showing through! I don’t care who you are, there is no excuse for being dirty and messy! However, the city is growing like crazy and McMansions are popping up all over the Southside and beyond. I just keep wondering what the heck these people do for a living that they can afford a $400K home AND have two Hummers in the driveway?
