My granddaughter lives in the Uptown section of Orleans Parish in New Orleans on the east bank of the Mississippi between the French Quarter and the Jefferson Parish line. It is a mixed residential area, small commercial and a wealth of 19th Century architecture.

It’s that architecture that is so interesting to see as we walked through the various neighborhoods. No two buildings are alike, some in varying shades of decay, others looking like new.


The Other Thing — It’s called The Crescent City, The Big Easy, Nawlins, NOLA and The City That Care Forgot. Whatever you call it, this city is one of  a kind!
