Bookshops. Probably a half dozen downtown. Seems outdated.

Local photo shops. Everyone orders online it seems

One local bank. They've lost money forever.

More than half of the shops in the French Quarter. I know the rent is steep and just can't fathom how some of those little off the wall shops make enough to stay afloat. And I'm not talking about the dumb tourist shops, those prob make a killing.

There is a small Chinese restaurant (Tai Li... And no it's not a Thai restaurant) that we eat at frequently because it is very tasty but there is never anybody in there. And we have been there on a Friday and Saturday night when other restaurants around it are jampacked and this place is a fricking ghost town but there are still 10 or so people working . We have often joked that it is probably some big money laundering operation cover and as I am typing this I think I'm starting to believe our assumptions.

I used to crush golf balls there when I would come work in our Geismer yard. Parking lot was always packed when I used to go. WTF happened?

Honestly the majority of the sex shops around here. More of a variety, better price and more discreet to order those types of things online.

Not that I would know from experience. It just is common sense IMO.
