    that lets you known you’re in “Nawlins” and nowhere
    else? It’s all good and in broad abundance on the
    streets of Tremé, where so much of what’s considered
    to be the very best of New Orleans culture and
    tradition is, put simply, just how people go about
    their daily lives in this historic part of town. As

    Wish I could answer. Have not been back, but I doubt much has changed. Although, the room taped in the episode was MUCH "nicer" than the pit we stayed in.
