EDITORS NOTE: The links in the following report may contain offensive language.
Tourists are flocking to New Orleans for Mardi Gras: Just in time for party-goers to witness a black mob that has taken over an entire neighborhood. And few seem to care.
Just ask the beleaguered residents of Amelia Street: an out-of-control gathering place for unruly teenagers during Mardi Gras (which) will receive increased attention this week from both police and city officials who promise to end the problem, said the Uptown Messenger.
Which is what police said last year. And the year before. And the year before that. Now it happens year round.
And it is getting worse: The break-ins, assaults, robberies, arson, threats, vandalism, you name it, all happening on a two block stretch on a parade route between Barronne Street and St. Charles Avenue.
I was there last year and it was absolutely crazy, said one reader at the Uptown Messenger website. Fights broke out, and I saw a moped catch fire. Read more at http://www.wnd.com/2013/02/black-mob-takes-over-neighborhood-again/#OQKlP0FUWXGMHAYh.99

Same thing if we don't..
Get off my lawn!
It was a $#*+hole 200 years ago, it was a $#*+hole before Katrina and it’ll be a $#*+hole 100 years from now. It’s Detroit with Jazz music and some French decorations.
Looks like my M1. A little too pristine for a combat arm.
Still, creative license aside in this instance, a damn fine movie.
Can’t wait for my own moment.
I could care less what happens to that cesspool maggot infested dump.
New Orleans is Detroit south. It’s been that way for years. Most of the population there is black. Most of the criminals there are black. Most of the victims there are black or to a lesser extent tourist marks. It’s not even news.
Absolutely positively without doubt or argument NO is a dump and have never for the life of me understood why anyone would think it a place to choose to go. It is a royal $#*+hole.
I only go there when I have to on business and get out just as fast as I possibly can.
Filthy, seedy, moldy, greasy, dangerous... Convention there? Why?
I like 'em to show some character as well. But I'll take pristine!
Cant wait for my own moment.
I can wait. This would not be combat but riot suppression. For mobs I'd want something with greater capacity. Ideally I'd prefer a suppressed rifle at long range. But Jeff Cooper thought the Ruger 10/22 could function well in this role--Mild report and disabling wounds, which would discourage any rioter and his friends who witness the sudden change of heart of their companion in crime.
If you ever wished to visit SF and live in the Midwest or East, just visit New Orleans and save some travel time and money to see queers, freaks and perverts in their native habitat.
P.J. O’Rourke described New Orleans as a high-crime drainage ditch.
Sounds like the New Orleans I know and do not love at all.
It has always been like this, it’s a festering sewer.
Ya mean like something Biblical ?
Or something involving offshore realty ?
Especially when Las Vegas, Dallas, Orlando and Nashville are available.
Its Detroit with Jazz music and some French decorations.
I remember one New Year’s Eve down on Bourbon Street when I was a student. Found a good bar serving hurricanes that would let my friends and I stand outside, buy drinks, and use the loo. I’ll never forget the scene as thousands paraded, shoulder to shoulder, through the street. It was like watching people enter the gates of hell. And, no, I’m not kidding. It really left an impression on me that was not pleasant.
And the Westbank is getting just as bad. The Westbank USED to be fairly safe, working class families, now it’s almost as dangerous (I hear from friends stuck there) as downtown.
All those “Obama Sons and Daughters” who came back after Katrina had to have SOMEWHERE to live, and the end of the Westbank began.
Been there done all those too Vet. Not impressed with any at this point. Nashville was not bad when I was a child visiting there, but the rest are not on my favored list. Just give me a mountain retreat for the best kind of vacation. I hate cities and only go to Columbus now because I have business there on occasion. Get in and out as fast as possible.
I'm old enough to remember when New Orleans was actually a very nice place to visit and even to reside. The area started it repaid descent around that time that John Fraud Kennedy became president.
Prior to the JFK administration, the Quarter, while rowdy was safe and actually family friendly to a certain extent. Stunning movie palaces and beautiful department stores (Maison Blance) lined Canal Street. The central business district was nearly theme-park clean and absolutely safe for walking. My wife and I used to stay at the Roosevelt Hotel and walked the surrounding blocks with absolutely no fear, down to Rampart Street over to Jackson Square and up to Loyola and Howard Avenues. You didn't even need to carry a gun in those days to feel safe!
Believe it or not, it was a great place for fun, food, shopping and history at one time. Then, in the early 60's, liberalism's clutches took hold and irreparably ruined the New Orleans of the 40s and 50s that I so fondly recall. The black thugs referenced in the lead article of this thread now control the once charming New Orleans and it's why it's been off my destination list for some 50 years now.
If you ever get to Omaha you HAVE to visit the zoo. One of the best in the world.
Show me someone going to New Orleans for vacation, and Iâll show you someone going there for the first time.
New Orleans has some great food, amazing architecture, good music and it can all be done staying well outside of the crime ridden areas.
And the writer of the article is not being truthful when he says that Amelia St is on a parade route.
My parents always went to New Orleans in the 50s. They stayed at the Fairmont too and went to The Blue Room. They took us in the 70s when we were around 10 or so a few times, but they continued going for years. Had their own waiter at Antoines which allowed us to go through a back door, down an ancient hall and pick up a phone. The waiter would come get us and take us to our table. It was fun.
What y’all said and it smells bad too.
We have an office there and I am there just about every month. Uptown is as nice as a neighborhood as anywhere in the country. I’m not a big fan of the Quarter, but Frenchmen is a great street to drink or listen to music.
Stay away from dealing drugs in Central City and you will be okay.
Is the city forcing the Krewe of Zulu to follow the printed route these days? I thought Amelia St. might be one of the traditional "detours".
Zulu goes down St, Charles which would bring it a few blocks from Amelia.
I know what you mean. When I visit family down there, it galls me that we have to carry concealed handguns just to feel comfortable enough to *risk* going out at night.
At Mardi Gras? Forget it. This isn't my idea of a "good time".
Tell you what, though... if you do find yourself down there, don't miss the WWII Museum. It was impressive to start with, and it just keeps getting better.
Immorality is destroying blacks. The false perception about who is really on the side of blacks is destroying blacks. And homosexuality is a big part of the agenda to push America into self-destruction. Immorality is destroying families, destroying communities and individuals. It destroys everything it touches. Liberals have been promoting immorality for over 100 years through education, media, government programs, and Hollywood.
But immorality is destroying everyone. It's destroying our culture. It's destroying our economy. It's destroying the relationship between blacks and whites, Indians and whites, Hispanics and whites. If you think about it long enough, immorality has had a part to play on every level of our society from the government to the banks to the corporations to the individual people.
The only people who can stop the assault on our country is the individual. When blacks stop listening to liberals who are trying to push them back on to the plantation. Liberals who are instigating animosity between the people and divide the country into different groups. The individual, starting with you, me, and everyone on this post can put an end to their destructive plan.
Liberals hate America. They're taught to from a very young age. They want to bring it down any way they can. Promoting immoral behavior is one of their best tools. And they have used it successfully among the black population. It's time to stop thinking of ourselves as “hyphenated Americans” and start seeing ourselves as just Americans. We need to come together, stop assuming that the civil, American way is the “white way.” Start seeing it as the “human way.”
I hope this makes sense. It's a lot to say in one little comment.
LBJ’s ‘Great Society’
From what I've observed in these incidents, provocative behavior is intentional in order to "justify" an attack.
Thanks Vet. I’ll remember that if I ever get there.
Great theme for a short movie. I think rio could be added to the list, San Francisco, any other parades downhill?
The National World War II Museum is great. Once the extensions are done it’ll be awesome, and very much worth the visit.
I have heard it is nice but I’ll look for pictures.
I’ve been to the Omaha Zoo with my young grandkids and it was great. I’d recommend it to anyone traveling there.
Concur. If you avoid holidays and weekends and just want to visit, weekdays are best, you can park easily and take your time.
The only "touristy" destinations I like in N.O. are Jackson Square and Cafe Du Monde. I'm a beignet-and-coffee addict, prostrate before my fried-carbo-donut god.
Central Grocery and its real-deal muffalettas are just across the street and over a couple of doors from Cafe du Monde ... half of one of those muffalettas will hold you all afternoon. Even without the beignets. In the evening, Mother's Cafe on Poydras, down near the foot near, ummm, between Baronne and Tchopitoulas, has the best red beans and rice in the solar system. You can tell walking in the door that it's damn good -- on a weekday at lunch, you see New Orleans businessmen in there, in their trademark black-and-white suits (black ties, black suits, white shirts). That's the Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval. You'll find those guys at Felix, too, a block off Canal in the Quarter, near the corner of Royale, I think. Felix does seafood.
Emeril's is just a few blocks upriver from Poydras ... in the old American Quarter. Parking's a beeotch. Food's good, though, and Emeril's famous.
I'd wait in line to get into Galatoire's, but that's the only thing I'd go into the Quarter for, myself, except for Jackson Square. Thirty-five years ago, I went in there with my cousin; I had the steak Bearnaise, and he had the Sirloin Marchand de Vin .... I remember them both vividly, we traded a cut. Great food! And that was before Galatoire's really came back and re-established themselves. My cousin, who'd recently spent a couple of years studying in Bordeaux, commented that Galatoire's looks like a typical family restaurant in the south of France, unpretentious except on the platter where it counts.
If you park more than a couple of blocks off Bourbon Street, don't stay in the Quarter past about 8 pm .... if you're staying late, use cabs and stay on Bourbon and Royale and there in Jackson Square. And yeah, it's a good idea to get a Louisiana carry permit -- and carry.
It's always nice to meet another member of the faithful. I'm more of the "Morning Call" sect (Metairie, right next to the newsstand behind Lakeside Mall). Yeah, it's not as touristy as Cafe du Monde, but nothing goes as well with a hot cup of coffee and an order of beignets as a crisp new issue of Shotgun News.
Ah, Mother's. My dad worked at the ITM Building right there at the riverfront. He always did say that Mother's made the best RB&R... but I may have found one better. Check out Dunbar's Creole Cooking (since Katrina, moved to Pine Street just off St. Charles Ave., next to the Loyola Law School campus). Possibly the best fried chicken in town, too.
Dubya sure didn't seem to mind what with his "spend whatever it takes" approach to NO.
I've been to that Morning Call in Metairie, my sister likes it. Been there a couple of times, in fact. Cafe du Monde has a location out there, now, too.
Thank God I dont often have to go into a concentrated Democrat parasite nest (city).
Only my tax dollars do.
I was at Mardi Gras in ‘70, the commemoration of Easy Rider. My date wore a tie (we had an event before the BIG event), which was picked right off of his neck. To this day, I have no idea why.
I hope the bar was Pat O’Brian’s.
“Ill never forget the scene as thousands paraded, shoulder to shoulder, through the street.”
During Mardi Gras, when leaving an establishment, one needs to go with the flow.
Bumping an excellent post!
The only thing I would add is that, if you want to stay close to the quarter without staying in the quarter, stay at the Hyatt by the convention center, and walk through the Riverfront Mall, and/or take the little train, to get to the quarter.
Too, I didn’t see one mention of Antoine’s. ;o)
Or, is it the Riverwalk?
I can’t remember. lol
He did? Did he work for Mobil? They used to have offices there. It was empty for years; when did they take it down? It was damaged in a hurricane, I remember .... I was watching a New Orleans movie just a few days ago (Bullet to the Head, Sly Stallone assassin-caper vehicle similar to Broken City, The Professional, The Mechanic, Assassination Tango.) and noticed the ITM was gone.
Dad worked for Delta Steamship Lines, whose office space in that building lingered, empty, for many years after the company consolidated into its Houston office.
We might be talking about two different buildings. I’m talking about the one with the big “mushroom” top — square, but with a sort-of mushroom profile, with a couple of outsized floors at the top, as if someone wanted extra penthouses up there.
My cousins pretty much had that deal when they went there for a convention in 2009 or 2010. The convention hotel was the Sheraton on Canal Street, so that was close, too, but higher up. I visited with them then, drove over and met them, and wound up doing a LOT of walking and trying to beat the parking meters. We wound up with them sneaking me into hotel parking with their room key, which was a lot more workable. You really need a hotel down there if you visit the city, any other arrangement is a beeotch. You can't really use your own car in N.O. ... they've seen to that with time limits and tow trucks. You have just about enough time to park, run an errand, and then rush back to your car before they tow you. Forget lunch at Brennan's.s That was Marc Morial fleecing the white people, I'm sure.
There was an odd office tower over near the post office and rail station that had oversized top floors. Loyola Avenue, I think... don't know if that one is gone (it probably should be).
The ITM building (the first of the World Trade Center buildings) is an x-shaped tower with a smaller, round structure on top. The round part used to slowly rotate, and had a very "Mad Men" bar/nightclub that was called "The Top of the Mart". The most recent club in that space was "Club 360" - its website is still active but I believe the club is closed. IIRC, there was a separate elevator to the "top".
The city had proposed that the building be used to house "disadvantaged businesses", which killed any outside investor interest. Attaboy, Mitch.
