how would you feel?Save Mid-City: “How Would You Feel?” – Resident Diana Monley

by Sarah Heffern on December 17th, 2008

Diana Monely has worked for the city of New Orleans for 30 years and lived in her Mid-City home for 35, and now — despite weathering Hurricane Katrina in the city to remain on the job — her loyalty to New Orleans is being repaid with the loss of her home. She says, “You just put yourself in my place. How would you feel?”

See what is proposed for demolition:

proposed demolitions to be replaced by a new LSU/Va hospital project, that could have been sited anywhere else , but in the historic and surviving viable neighborhood…of Mid-City New Orleans.
this is a very unique little shotgun house, and is irreplaceable , as an historic architectural treasure, but more importantly as a home for ms. Monley.

see the other houses! to be demolished, this is a crime against the citizenry(my two cents),

and the prc advocacy’s set of the neighborhood, the LSU/VA footprint,
