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...

This has become the norm. I live right in the middle of Uptown too - they won't leave downtown if there are tourists around for the most part. I usually end up walking to T...

Per MLS, it's already under contract after only a couple of days. Nola real estate is pretty much insane right now....

I meant that the jails are making money, not the cops. I was using "cops" in a general sense; law enforcement benefits from having warm bodies in jail. I think it was the Times-Picayune that ...

Yea, the cops want to keep the jails full so they can put more money in their pockets. Will be interesting to watch it play out but the younger generation is definitely behind Badon. Parents... not so much...

I'm not going to read the whole thread so not sure if this has been discussed. A large number of the historic renovations (nearly all of them), which are currently mixed-income, will remain in this mixed-income format for a predetermined amount of time (i.e. the Hibernia building will be for 7 year...
