This house, which is not a traditional New Orleans style of any single type but definitely of our solid wood tradition, is on Palmetto, off Carrollton. It’s the lone house on what is mostly the New Orleans Country Club property. When I visited, I found the house completely untouched post-K. I did find a note in the mailbox from a man named Guy saying, " I am interested in your house. Phone #." I called him and he is still interested in purchasing the property. I gave him a detailed description of its condition. He lives in the Lower Ninth on Jordan and has rehabilitated his own property and purchased a house next to him that was being neglected and is working on it too. I will call him again and ask him to attend the HCDRC meeting on Monday but going to City Hall is a pain-in-the-ass to be avoided if at all possible. I know he prefer we advocate on his behalf. He told me that has another neighbor who has done nothing and pleaded for me to come see him. I will.
