The Houston Heights Area refers to an extensive space in northwest-central Houston that is divided up into many smaller subdivisions. While Houston Heights is actually its own neighborhood, the Houston Heights Area is a broad term that also includes the neighborhoods of Brooke Smith, Norhill, North Norhill, Sunset Heights and Woodland Heights. The Houston Heights Area is considered a popular spot for young professionals as well as for those raising families. The area has a small town feel and sense of community, but is also conveniently located only about four miles from downtown Houston.
