  1. These houses have stood through hurricanes and all manner if natural threats. They’re made with valuable materials which aren’t available now. Humans are their greatest threat.
    I’ve always been proud of our architecture, for rich and for poor. I do not like what New Orleans is becoming. A simulacra if itself.

  2. Is owner applying for permit to demolish 8719 Birch or renovate? Looks like it can definitely be salvaged. Has been lived in recently.
