    that is so depressing, that is a truly classic new orleans home. it bothers me that no one ever seems to care about these homes as much as the french quarter. the developers seem to think the french quarter is the only thing that is historic. it was so funny when nagin was speeking about the new film studio being built by the lafitte project. nagin said it is an awesome location because it is close french quarter which contains so much history. well he did not mention that the film studio is actually in treme, mid city, the sixth ward which are equally as historic as the french quarter. nagin needs to take a drive through new orleans.


    what is your definition of classic. this is classic n.o. planning … to allow such an “infill” structure to be placed unbelievably close to a somewhat nicer and worthy classic home. the tree stump indicates a faulty foundation on the front corner. this house would not be allowed to be built today,and should not be allowed to be rebuilt in that location. it is a fire hazard to the adjacent buildings. betcha it is/was a rental. and is in need of refurbishment, but owner can’t justify the cost based on rental.

    willie wouldnt that house be older if it is closer to the sidewalk. I bet it was one of the first houses built on the block but I may be wrong after all you are the architect. It would be sad to lose a single shotgun like that that’s all im saying. Many homes in New Orleans are built right up to the side walk that is classic New Orleans design in old working class neighborhoods; look at all the really old working class neighborhoods like the marigny, bywater the lower section of mid city nearer downtown which is officially Tulane Gravier neighborhood but I call it mid city, also neighborhoods like Central city, Irish channel and others. The list goes on and on. Many of those homes are built right up to the sidewalk. I’ve heard about you before you seem to be somewhat famous locally. Email me at katrinaevacuee200@yahoo.com if you ever want to discuss anything. I do not want to brag but I know a lot about New Orleans for a fifteen year old.

    It’s the little house that cried.

    No matter it’s history, it is too close to the other house. This little one should be lifted onto a truck and stuck in a city park somewhere, as a museum piece.
