Gulfton, a 3.2 square mile group of apartment complexes, is located outside of the 610 Loop and inside Beltway 8, west of the city of Bellaire, east and south of the southwest freeway, and north of Bellaire Boulevard.
Gulfton has a mostly Hispanic and immigrant population.
The apartments that make up Gulfton were built during the Oil Boom of the 1970s, when the population was wealthy and predominantly white. After the oil bust in the mid 1980s, much of the wealthy population then left the area, and was replaced by Latin American immigrants. Crime increased in the area, so the neighborhood became known as the Gulfton Ghetto.
