Playing catch up, a Katrina Story.

<p>On June 15th, 2005, I registered the domain name To be perfectly honest, up until several years ago, I had always remembered it being registered days after August 29th, 2005, and certainly remained firm on it’s original inception. It was surreal to look back and research it’s beginning and realize in a very David Fincher way that I had almost being lying to myself all those years.</p>

St. Charles Streetcar Line

<p><em>Since 1835, The St. Charles Avenue Streetcar has run the same 13.2 mile route from Canal Street in the French Quarter to where Carrolton Avenue and the Mississippi River meet. The St. Charles Streetcar line is the oldest continuously operating streetcar line in the world, along quite possibly one of the most beautiful avenues in America.</em></p>

Pops Park

<p>Each and every person who has spent any time in New Orleans, especially the French Quarter, has seen the unbelievably elegant Armstrong archway on N. Rampart Street. Louisiana based band Mute Math's 2009 Armistace cover art was famously composed in front of Armstrong Park.</p>

The Saint Claude Index

<p>We've been huge fans of Erik Kiesewetter & Co. at <a target="_blank" href="" rel="noopener noreferrer">Constance</a> for quite some time. Their first 2 eponymous self-titled publications were an ode to local New Orleans creatives and artists that continue to inspire. They certainly have a special place in our library. Since 2008 when they released "Delicate Burdens", they continue to design, produce, and publish well designed and truly covetable ephemera.</p>

The Historical New Orleans Collection

Even though we're nowhere near the age of Saint Augustine, Florida which was founded in 1565, New Orleans as is far more excited than most cities formed around that same time.</p>

National WWII Museum

<p>Since it's founding in 2000, <a target="_blank" href="" rel="noopener noreferrer">The National WWII Museum</a> has become one of the top 5 destination museums in the world. Showcasing "the war that changed the world", the museum has grown quite a bit in nearly 14 years. With nearly 12 huge exhibits, the WWII Museum has come a long way and has grown beyond the dreams of it's Founder Stephen Ambrose. Here's a bit more...</p>

Our Favorite Nola Graffiti

<p>New Orleans has always been considered a colorful and magical place. In our opinion, and certainly contrary to the Grey Ghost, we feel as though the graffiti around town adds to the seduction, charm, and experience of Nola. World renowned artist Banksy has produced many pieces around town that sometimes documents our city's strife and our allure. Below are some of our favorite pieces of Nola graffiti, which we consider art.</p>

Our Favorite Public Sculpture

<p>As a city, we continue to grow by leaps and bound. The city is truly taking shape and quickly becoming the cosmopolitan landmark we can all be proud of. Last year we pointed out some of the great local parks around town and now we're giving you a heads up on some of the great public sculpture around town.</p>
