Squandered Heritage Vintage

Offensive sidewalk under seige by City Hall

davids house

I wrote about this house when the City tried to demolish it and later when they tried to make the owners down a fence. And now they want them to take the paint off the sidewalk.

Really? In a City where we don’t have sidewalks or streets for that matter you want them to cover up the paint.

    Yes… It’s people like this… people that paint their sidewalk that make New Orleans the #1 dangerous city… Maybe if the City directed its resources towards battles that MATTER New Orleans would be a little safer for everyone.
