    This is one of the most important buildings in Central City! A rare multi-unit Creole cottage! No way we can let this one be torn down.

    This is an important row of Creole cottages in the style of the 1840s. It would be an enormous loss for the row to be demolished. This is a perfect opportunity to rehabilitate an historic row and make it better than it was before the storm.

    Has this been torn down? Why is New Orleans letting its history be torn down? How can we help if we do not live in New Orleans but want to purchase a house that was damaged or slated for demolition?
