There Goes the Neighborhood
No, really. There it goes. As I noted, a group of five houses - all of them affected to some degree by the waters of Hurricane Katrina - made the only migration they'll ever make to lots across town here in New Orleans.
A worker rode along in the back of the Mediterranean Revival shotgun once owned and occupied by the Monleys on Palmyra. I can't wait to see some of the professional film photos of this episode from the photographer Stephen Hilger, pictured at right.
You can see the tip top of the courthouse at Tulane and Broad off in the distance through the harsh afternoon sun.
Bringing up the rear of the five-house convoy, the lonely but renovated house from 228-30 S. Miro made its way across the bridge over I-10 with the Super Dome and the Plaza Tower off in the distance.
Here's a very rough approximation of the route across town.
