1722 Cleveland Oct 20 Rebel 001

The owner sent a representative by the name of Lisa Clark to request demolition of this 1880’s Eastlake (high style Victorian) shotgun which is in fair shape, squatters are living in it. It’s got great exterior detail, like shutters and the terra cotta crown on the roof. Interiors include fireplaces and mantles intact. The side gallery is great. This property could be renovated.

The owner, Henry Herdman, is well known in the Tulane/Gravier neighborhood because he owns many neglected properties and vacant lots. This house has some solid architectural features that should have been nurtured. I have seen this one man destroy a neighborhood’s architectural fabric just because he has refused to sell and the city lacks the teeth to take his neglected properties away. My post on Metroblogging New Orleans tells the story of my very first site visit for SH. At One With Weird

Here is the list of properties this man owns, according to the assessor’s database. Often these folks have more blighted property, hiding some of them under the names of family members. We need some property law enforcement in New Orleans.
