On Cleveland Avenue
Here's what the remains of Cleveland Avenue looked like today in the LSU Footprint, as seen from S. Galvez Street. Approximately 20 historic buildings, mostly residences, lined the strip that's visible when I first started walking the footprint. The unfunded wasteland grows.
Off in the distance, you'll note one other interesting recent development if you click on the photo and zoom in - a temporary external lift on the side of the former Pallas or Grand Palace Hotel, which crews appear to be preparing for demolition.
