[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...

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...

That's a damn good price. I got my '13 overland (2wd) new for $40k right before they came out with the 2014 body style. I think people were able to get good prices on the old body style when there were still several ...

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...

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...
