It's interesting that the article mentions the number of live music venues as an incentive to live here since they're all being shut down. By the time Mitch is done New Orleans will be just like every other crappy city just with more crime.

Nah. Its a new day in new orleans. About the only thing that can ruin it is another levee failure or an inability to curb the murder rate.

certainly is.

I remember clearly James Carville, when asked if he would run for Mayor after Nagin term, said "whoever is the next Mayor CANNOT lose in this City" ( With the amount of Federal money flowing in here for University Medical area )

It has spurred much needed development of areas in DIRE need of re-development. I am quite excited to see what this City will look like in 5 years.

good article
extra thought: i often feel that geography is destiny - you can look at most cities and figure out their growth/character by understanding it's geography

NO has always ebbed and flowed and does not sustain fast growth
what has happened in the past is that there has been renewal and growth, but then that growth tapers and a languor sets in - then the type A people get out b/c the pace slows too much and the rest of us more torpid types are left
will it happen again?

Good article.

I hope there's room for one more person in a couple of years.

ALL of them?
No not all of them. I'm prone to exaggeration during hissy fits. A bunch of them. Is that better? But after looking at the zoning laws that regulate live music it's amazing that we do have any at all.

I was just messing with you but the music thing reminds me of all the other things that people complain about in their neighborhoods.

Warehouse dist. residents complaining about a bar that wants to open up;
Uptown people fighting a small, neighborhood bistro from opening;
FQ residents complaining because Bourbon St. is too loud;
People living in the Upper Pontabla apartments complaining about the merchants in Jackson square.

It like there are things that make a neighborhood unique, and so a bunch of people want to move to those areas, then they get old and start complaining about the same things that made the area special in the first place.

New orleans has alot of live music compared to Memphis. For the birthplace of Rock n Roll, Memphis has a terrible music scene. The local bands are mostly cover bands or heavy metal noise.
