One of the last houses on its city block - a block which used to have 22 primary structures and many more individual addresses (many were shotgun doubles) - the top floor of 223 S. Galvez sits awaiting a move off the site to be rehabilitated elsewhere in New Orleans. Moves for this week are set to start tomorrow, Thursday.
Off in the distance on the left, you can barely make out a few lights in two houses that are still occupied - Ms. Gaynell's place and Robert's house.
All told, about 6 houses and one business remain at least partially occupied in the site, even at this late hour.
