Low and Outside

Welcome to the ballpark. And brown fields and barren expanses of a still-not-rejuvenated section of downtown.

Central Houston estimates that by 2005 the area around Enron Field will look "radically different" than it did before the baseball-stadium vote.

But for much if not all of the Astros' first season downtown, visitors are not likely to be overwhelmed by their surroundings outside the park. Whether those first impressions will keep anyone away in future years is impossible to say, of course.

If they're worried about it, though, maybe the movers and shakers can break out the spin machine. Or the spotlights and Starbucks.
