People focus too much on the hardships so closely associated with this well known working class neighborhood when what’s really most remarkable about the tightknit community is its indefatigable spirit of rebirth and ability to stay true to its roots. Perhaps not an ideal destination for those visitors who tend to keep well within their comfort zones when traveling or those with bucket lists filled to the brim with top tourist attractions, the Ninth Ward is nonetheless there for those who are most keen to discover the places they encounter. But it’s not all about learning lessons when going to the Ninth Ward. With its “Living Museum” and “steamboat houses” and a long enduring dedication to preserving local culture, there’s more than enough to see and do during a daytime tour of the area.
I stopped by to drop of some dog treats. Unfortunately, I was not able to tour the property, but did she the filming of the show and was able to speak with the security guy. If you like dogs this is a neat place to visit. Please note that you have to drive to it.
It allows one to pass judgement on entire communities struggling under the weight of poverty, institutionalized discrimination and oppression, having never suffered poverty, discrimination or oppression oneself. Unlike the previous reviewer who called the museum a “complaint department”, I believe this museum provides an intimate, firsthand perspective from 9th Ward residents themselves. New Orleans and specifically the 9th Ward have...
This is private museum of Mardi Gras Indian culture in New Orleans. Mr. Lewis, the owner & operator, is a retired streetcar driver and longtime Indian, skeleton member and Lower 9th Ward homeowner. His artifacts are authentic and represent one of the most colorful traditions in the world. Bonus: If you can get him to talk about his post-Katrina travails...
If you have a car, I think this is a must visit. We spent about two hours here looking at all the exhibits. The Katrina one was especially well done - gave a good look at what it was like for the national guard, who was one of the first responders in that disaster. Also neat information about how the...
"Not Dauphine in the French Quarter, Dauphine in the 9th Ward"
reviewed 4 weeks ago by geoaiii
Tourists go to New Orleans every year and eat where they are directed to go because of famous name or proximity to the French Quarter. Often they rave about how good the food is because they have no comparison. Meanwhile, locals go places like this where the food is much tastier and cheaper to boot. This place is far from...
This was a good walk from the CBD. And the neighborhood gets a little less ritzy. But this is a friendly place. And the food really exceeded my expectations. Very casual and comfy. I got the tempeh Reuben and a pickle plate.
I am doing another review as this time I had the fries with my burger.Burger still good but,if pattie was 8 oz instead of 6 oz would be perfect!Little lite on the fixins but,most N.O. burgers are like that for some reason.The fries were very brown as advertised but,not much flavor at all!! Would not get then again!
This locally owned company has been making great frozen confections for as long as i can remember. Fresh fruits, Vietnamese coffee, Basil, Coconut, interesting season favorites. Its hot here in the summer and these are a delicious way to cool down. Available year round. Absolutely my favorite deserts in the city.
"Great coffee and an amazing pop-up breakfast on the sidewalk outside"
reviewed 17 September 2018 by BigJon55
The latte here was excellent. Service was good as well.
I was most pleased with the breakfast on the sidewalk outside where a guy had set up a table and griddle and was making basically breakfast sushi. He called it The Lost Line.
I just happened upon this place by accident and couldn't have done better if I had planned...
