re: "Covington like up-town New Orleans without the gun-fire" - gorillaballin
[quote]How can you disagree? [/quote] Because a very, very small portion of downtown Covington is walkable. Just about everyone is living amongst the sprawl in places like Tchefuncte CC, Covington CC, Barker's Corner, etc, etc... None of those subdivisions are remotely walkable. Pretty much...

[quote]Did you watch the video?[/quote] I did. I'm just saying that I disagree. I can truly speak from both sides. Edit: I also agree with the point about NS kids not knowing the bad areas. I came over here for Mardi Gras in HS and college and didn't know bad from good really. Nothing ever...

[quote]Those kids that grow up on the NS never get exposed to the real world. They get to college and boom. [/quote] Meh, most NS kids go to college and do just fine. I went to HS over there, did fine at LSU, and moved to Uptown after school. I know a ton of Mandeville peeps who have done the s...

re: LA Fitness or Equivalent in NOLA? - gorillaballin
JCC Uptown is solid and has courts. I'm not Jewish and most of the members aren't - it's more of a community center. Tulane and Loyola have good facilities from what I hear as well Edit: J-Club has towel service...

re: What are the pros/cons of Madisonville, LA? - gorillaballin
[quote]The suburb-hating adrenaline junkies will be here soon to tell you how boring it is. [/quote] It's boring as shite if you're single and/or under 30. I grew up there. The river is great during the summer but that's pretty much it. Good place if you're doing the family thing though....

re: Woman reports gang rape in Uptown New Orleans - gorillaballin
[quote]It's not terrible of an area. [/quote] Other than a couple of shootings on the 3800 blk of Annunciation (same house/people) and now this, there has been very little crime in our hood over the past few years. Really not a bad area, comparatively speaking...

re: Cost to insulate my house? - gorillaballin
I have an old shotgun double uptown and deal with this same issue. Insulation in the attic but nowhere else. The reason I've avoided spray insulation is that I've heard some horror stories about it trapping moisture and rotting out walls. Does anyone know if there's any truth in that?...

re: UBER in NOLA live thread - gorillaballin
I live in your hood zealot and I almost always have trouble getting cabs so I usually end up walking to Tip's, which is kind of a cab hub when they're having a show. Trips downtown w Uber may cost a few bucks more but at least we can sit in the fricking AC while they come...

re: Your Experience with Wisconsin Fans - gorillaballin
This thread has turned into LSU fans bashing LSU fans :lol: I thought the Wisky fans were pretty fun and knowledgeable people. Midwesterners are different but we didn't have any issues with them. I sat in 340 and they shut down alcohol sales at halftime because there were "too many fights". I...

re: Any Northshore OTers live in Bedico? - gorillaballin
Most of what needs to be said about the Bedico area has been said except for one notable oversight. I grew up in Mande and now live on the south shore. Yes you can get a nice, big house out there, which is great if you plan on staying there for several years. That said, if you are a first time ho...
