Is this a coincidence? Is there a reason the downtown grid isn't due east/west?

My guess would be the grid was set based on the course of the river.

Most towns in Texas were laid out in the 1800's to have the streets parallel and perpendicular to the river. That was more or less the planning principles in effect at that time.
