Public Notice Regarding Historic Review of Privately-Owned Residential Buildings Proposed for Demolition in Orleans Parish, Louisiana – Non-Collapsed Buildings Seeking Comment

5331 Painters Street {Gentilly}

This area of Gentilly is very quiet. There is probably a lot more activity on the weekends. We looked at a number of properties in Gentilly. There were 2 demolitions requested on a 3 lot parcel. One of the houses had already been torn down. The other house had not been touched since the storm. When I saw a large rodent I got a little skittish.
