Alright, I'll give you that, the smallish, true downtown Covington resembles Uptown Nola to a degree. ...

[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.

[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...

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...

Lived in Covington for 18 years. Lived in Uptown since 2009. These places have very little in common

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...

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....

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?...

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...
