Dome

on what the Superdome means to the city
of New Orleans,

What our buildings matter- a few words about the Superdome, by
michelle b kimball,
“Who remembers the days after Katrina when tales were spun about why the Superdome should be demolished?

Who can imagine the Saints’ road to the Super Bowl being paved anywhere else? Who can imagine the skyline of New Orleans without this landmark?

Back in 1966, Dave Dixon convinced the Louisiana Legislature to pass a law enabling the construction of the Superdome. Ground was broken in 1971 on the building designed by Curtis and Davis. She opened on August 5, 1975. The 35th anniversary of her opening passed without fanfare, as her exterior walls were being clad with new siding, as her roof was getting a new paint job, and as Champions Square was being constructed.

She has been a monument to the recovery of New Orleans. Today she houses the 12th man, the Who Dat Nation — the people that lead the recovery of the city. She is an international landmark whose walls tell many stories — the story of how our government failed us and the story of the people that have prevailed. She is the church where we go a few times a year to give testament to our faith in New Orleans and in our Saints.

I’ll spend the hours leading up to the game on the streets of New Orleans surveying houses that are proposed for demolition and on the phone chatting up the threat to demolish up to 1,000 houses within the Neighborhood Conservation District without the locally mandated citizen review. I’ll post about this on the PRC blog when the noise of this historic day subsides, but you can read the news here: http://www.nola.com/katrina/index.ssf/2010/09/louisiana_land_trust_ready_to.html#postComment

But, at 7:30 pm, I’ll rejoice in the decision to renovate our beloved Superdome and I’ll chant WHO DAT with the rest of New Orleans as the team captain drops his hand!

White Pelicans gathering to roost near the coastline of Louisiana. Located in Plaquemines Parish. The size of the island they are on has been drastically reduced in size in just one year. The Gulf of Mexico is behind the bushes in the picture – some 20 yards away. My guess is that this remaining part of the island will be gone before the end of the year.

‘Twas in another lifetime, one of toil and blood
When blackness was a virtue and the road was full of mud
I came in from the wilderness, a creature void of form.
“Come in,” she said,
“I’ll give you shelter from the storm.”

And if I pass this way again, you can rest assured
I’ll always do my best for her, on that I give my word
In a world of steel-eyed death, and men who are fighting to be warm.
“Come in,” she said,
“I’ll give you shelter from the storm.”

Not a word was spoke between us, there was little risk involved
Everything up to that point had been left unresolved.
Try imagining a place where it’s always safe and warm.
“Come in,” she said,
“I’ll give you shelter from the storm.”

I was burned out from exhaustion, buried in the hail,
Poisoned in the bushes an’ blown out on the trail,
Hunted like a crocodile, ravaged in the corn.
“Come in,” she said,
“I’ll give you shelter from the storm.”

Suddenly I turned around and she was standin’ there
With silver bracelets on her wrists and flowers in her hair.
She walked up to me so gracefully and took my crown of thorns.
“Come in,” she said,
“I’ll give you shelter from the storm.”

Now there’s a wall between us, somethin’ there’s been lost
I took too much for granted, got my signals crossed.
Just to think that it all began on a long-forgotten morn.
“Come in,” she said,
“I’ll give you shelter from the storm.”

Well, the deputy walks on hard nails and the preacher rides a mount
But nothing really matters much, it’s doom alone that counts
And the one-eyed undertaker, he blows a futile horn.
“Come in,” she said,
“I’ll give you shelter from the storm.”

I’ve heard newborn babies wailin’ like a mournin’ dove
And old men with broken teeth stranded without love.
Do I understand your question, man, is it hopeless and forlorn?
“Come in,” she said,
“I’ll give you shelter from the storm.”

In a little hilltop village, they gambled for my clothes
I bargained for salvation an’ they gave me a lethal dose.
I offered up my innocence and got repaid with scorn.
“Come in,” she said,
“I’ll give you shelter from the storm.”

Well, I’m livin’ in a foreign country but I’m bound to cross the line
Beauty walks a razor’s edge, someday I’ll make it mine.
If I could only turn back the clock to when God and her were born.
“Come in,” she said,
“I’ll give you shelter from the storm.”

Isle de Jean Charles lies 80 miles southwest of New Orleans and is home to Cajuns and members of the Biloxi-Chitimacha Tribe, related to the Choctaws and part of the larger Federation of Muskogees. The island was battered by 9 foot storm surges during hurricanes Gustav and Ike and the majority of homes have not been rebuilt. The sensee of pride in the small community remains strong.

Pointe-au-Chien, Louisiana

The Pointe-au-Chien tribe lives west of the Mississippi River mouth, more than 100 miles by water from the spot where the Deepwater Horizon drilling rig exploded and sank. Headed here from New Orleans, the road branches and narrows until it is two lanes hugging a cola-colored bayou where alligators hide. The tribe lives where the road ends.

The tribe says it has lived in this region for more than a century, one of a group of tribes that escaped into the bayous as Manifest Destiny roared by. But, for a century now, the swamp has done a progressively worse job at keeping bad things away.

Et in Arcadia, Oil!

Originally uploaded by New Orleans Lady

The entire Gulf Coast wetlands ecosystem is a delicate and profound balance of tides, winds, and ocean temperatures.

It’s almost cosmic.

Tides push and pull vast and deep columns of water through narrow passes into lakes and bays and back out to the open ocean.

This is a marine cardiovascular system on a continental scale, one supporting waters that roil with life.

from where St. JOSEPH bricks came from
to build new orleans
great work by anthony
-”Founded in 1891 when Peter W. Schneider acquired a small hand-operated plant. St. Joe Brick Works, Inc. has been under continuous family operations for 119 years. This plant located 40 mi (64 km) north of New Orleans is the oldest family brick manufacturer east of the Mississippi River making colonial woodmoulded face brick.

St. Joe Brick Works, Inc. is one of only a very few brick plants that uses the soft-mud process of making brick in which the clay is formed into individual bricks in a wooden mould as was done in the early colonial period. It is so unique in its color and texture characteristics that architects have specified its use in many areas as distant as Massachusetts, New York, Northern Michigan, and Minnesota. It has been used extensively by the Bell Telephone System, Rice University of Houston, and Texas Instruments of Dallas. Many churches and architecturally designed structures have been constructed with this material because of its characteristic aging qualities, although more modern buildings such as the Savannah Hilton in Georgia, The Hockaday School, Pan American University, St. Luke’s of Houston, Broward Mental Hospital, of Hallendale, Florida, the Heyman Oil Center in Lafayette, Louisiana, Louisiana State University (Baton Rouge Campus), Tulane University, and the Botantical Gardens at Atlanta.

St. Joe Brick Works, Inc. is also unique in its manufacturing process: the color of the brick is determined by temperature variations during the firing process. No coatings hide the natural, rich shades of color. St. Joe Brick Works, Inc. woodmoulds can be used for both exterior and interior pavers and for walls with character in any architectural scheme.

The much sought after New Orleans “Hard Tan” and “Soft Red” Used Brick coming from demolished structures in New Orleans today were originally manufactured at St. Joe Brick Works, Inc. and other St. Tammany Parish brick yards in existence before and after the turn of the century.

A House in Mid-City

Originally uploaded by Editor B

Wow. Just wow. I’m not sure this picture fully captures the beatdown, ramshackle, dilapidated look of this poor old house. It literally stopped me in my tracks when I rode past on my bike. This is in my neighborhood, but I’d never seen it before.

I didn’t talk to any of the immediate neighbors, but I’ve got a suspicion that they’d say it looked pretty much the same before Katrina.

“Demolition by Neglect” refers to the gradual deterioration of a building when routine or major maintenance is not performed. The ordinances which created both Historic District Landmarks Commissions entrust the Commissions with insuring that structures located within the local historic districts and landmarks designated by the Commissions are not allowed to be demolished through the neglect of the owners. A Demolition by Neglect citation issued by the Commission is against the owner of the property for failure to properly maintain the property.

Charity

Originally uploaded by M Styborski

I shot this in April of 2006, when hope still shone on Charity Hospital like a beacon. At the time I didn’t do anything with it, but I remembered thinking that the surrounding clouds looked like a portent of dire warning if ever there was one. Fancy that. Now this photograph has decided it wants to speak, to scream in agony with a voice that could pierce the ears of the deaf. I am only too happy to lend it my stage.It has become painfully clear to me now that there is no hope for Charity. LSU wants a shiny new sprawling medical complex and they don’t care what historic landmarks or neighborhoods or communities stand in their way. It’s been four years since Hurricane Katrina gave LSU and the State of Louisiana the Golden Opportunity to lock the doors on Charity. Since then it has languished, decaying day by day like the health of the citizens of New Orleans.

Mayor Nagin is a clueless, ineffective caricature of leadership, concerned more with lining his pockets than the well-being of this city. Governor Jindal is on the money train with his cronies and frat brothers at LSU, even though they have failed multiple times to find financing for their boondoggle. President Obama certainly could care less, otherwise he would have sliced us off a tasty hunk of that Stimulus Cheese to help solve the problem. So what can we do?

Let’s die.

Winter is coming and this gives us all a great opportunity to catch pneumonia and die. And when it’s time for all of us to go, let’s use our last breaths to crawl to the locked and boarded cyclone fence that surrounds Charity and shuffle off this mortal coil in mass protest. That’ll show ‘em! Piles of corpses surrounding the building, cough drops and throat lozenges clogging the sewers like so many discarded Mardi Gras doubloons and Moon Pies, rivers of phlegm and mucous running down Tulane Avenue to the river, and in each of our hands a can of LSU brand Chicken Soup with the handwritten message, “It’s not working.” Is that what it would take for someone in Baton Rouge to finally wake up and do something?

Unless of course, that’s exactly what they’re waiting for…

-Canal Commercial Trust and Savings Bank was formed in 1924 as a merger between Canal Bank (formed in 1831) and Citizens Bank of Louisiana (formed in 1833).

Canal Commercial Savings Bank and Trust was largely secured by sugar-cane holdings. The bank ultimately failed in 1933 and was liquidated, with its assets becoming part of The National Bank of Commerce in New Orleans – later known as First NBC.

the lower ninth: K+36

Three years in the making, my first book is now available at Blurb

On August 29, 2005 Hurricane Katrina made landfall near the Louisiana/Mississippi border, forever changing the lives of thousands of people. One of the most devastated areas was New Orleans’ Lower Ninth Ward, submerged beneath millions of gallons of water, in some places by as much as ten feet.

This collection of photographs by M Styborski documents three years of loss and recovery, destruction and rebuilding, and despair and hope in one of New Orleans’ oldest neighborhoods.

The video above highlights a small sample of the 135 photographs contained in the book. The music is the appropriately titled ‘House Of Cards’ by Final Academy, a band from New Orleans many years ago.

word up,
houses down, granted demolition over the labor day weekend of Gustav, when no one is in the city. Demolition began before residents were to return, a story from a Nation of Morons,

nationofmorons.blogspot.com/

Mr. Styborski writes this story,
“And then there’s the complete moron list. A woman evacuated for Gustav and returned to New Orleans to find a property she owned razed to the ground, not by the storm, but by Ray Nagin’s elves. The city was supposed to demolish #1425 and her property was #1429, but somehow a photo of her house was attached to the city paperwork for #1425. So, she’s out the 30K spent on renovation, plus the 40K of contracting equipment, (ladders, scaffolding, tools,) that was at the property.

Instead of finding the correct address, instead of checking with superiors about the discrepancy, instead of noticing the freaking renovations to a house listed as collapsing, these mental giants just swarmed in like locusts leaving destruction and confusion in their path.

So far, the city has no comment. Is it any wonder Nagin wanted us to stay away for another week? “

Save the ‘ BANK OF SOUL’
A Public Improvement on the Right-of Way
Corner of Louisa and Burgundy Streets

The ‘Bank of Soul’ is an attempt to both fix a disregarded and damaged sidewalk in Bywater and also acknowledges the historical and cultural legacies of our New Orleans. It was prompted by a response to an upcoming citywide art event, Prospect 1. (http://www.prospectneworleans.org/) Using historical materials, the corner has been transformed from a ditch of broken concrete and gravel nearly 8 inches deep to an environmental cultural icon complete with handicap access allowing for safe passage with multi-directional pedestrian use. The symbolism in this treatment is ‘artistic’ yet functional with careful concern for safety and restoration. At the same time as an openly public installation it depicts an honest representation of our shared cultural uniqueness and is truly sympathetic to our struggles to rebuilt and recharge the beauty of our city. As this installation is new I have received great support from many neighbors who have approved of its design and professional execution. It has been navigated by our police officers, postal workers and elderly and all have mentioned that it is a fresh and worthy addition to the landscape here in Bywater. Obviously anything new doesn’t go without controversy or criticism and with added measured of protection (installation of a long gone traffic sign) and improved visibility (empowering an existing high intensity lighting fixture) the site could be improved with regard to safety and usability.

The ‘Bank of Soul’ is meant to be a temporary solution to a widespread problem in our city – the streets and sidewalks all over the city are battered and in need of repair. Please support the pride in our city as keeping the ‘Bank of Soul’ captures the strength, joy and resilience that sustain New Orleans and her people and her timeless indestructible spirit.

New Orleans is a unique and beautiful city that has historically embraced the spirit of personal freedom that supports the individual growth of the artist, musician and writer … the goal of the NoLA Project is to showcase that spirit.” rex

Dear Mr. President:

…concluding…..”Our recovery’s success, struggle, or failure will be intimately woven into your legacy, for better or worse. What Americans think about America is deeply affected by how this country rises to national challenges, none more significant than post-Katrina New Orleans. Fully restoring New Orleans to its formerly unique and permanent place in American culture is this nation’s greatest domestic challenge. Your leadership of our country through this difficult time will serve as an American character lesson for future generations.”

I ran into the nolareno, and found Treme, and I began to look for negatives I had of this house….after I’d run into Karen, and found Squandered Heritage, a year ago, and now looking back, I see this is a good series documenting some of the destruction that was occurring then, especially in the Treme, Laureen’s neighborhood. I found my negative, from 1978

So we don’t forget.

There are people doing the right thing for the right reason with the wrong result. There are people who are doing the wrong thing for the right reason with all kinds of results. There are people spinning their wheels doing not much more than constant complaining. There are those that live comfortably numb to the suffering in the city and do nothing and finally there are those that just plain are “suckin’ the blood out of the genius of generosity”. For me personally, to stay true to the things I think are right and in which I think I have something to offer accompanied with a positive outlook works and hopefully, just maybe brings others to the table as well”

Those structures determined to be an “imminent threat”, and are to be demolished, 1700+ properties. However if you look, you will see so many neighborhoods of historic quality arbitrarily determined by the city to be a threat.
