Side hall Two-story townhouse, with a beautiful iron work gallery. A beautiful house among so many other vernacular houses in a neighborhood. Not a corner store, but as with so many corner structures in New Orleans, important, classic and landmark structures sit on corners like this, a visual prize that distnguishes one neighborhood from another….

The sign blew off during Katrina.
After Katrina I spent a lot of time driving around on my scooter and walking around looking for that sign.

Mr. Kirsch has a really nice set of New Orleans corner stores, that have in history played such an important role in the neighborhoods where you find them.

– “Summer is really here. The malaise you can cut with a
knife, but then there is the rage and anger and fear that
get in the way.

I miss New Orleans.

Yesterday a young man came by my house on a bike. No tire,
riding on the rim. He lived here before the storm and used
to hang out on my porch with the other little terrors that
lived here in my neighborhood.

He said he was looking for them, where are they? Who knows” Karen 2007
