    Interesting article and I hope that they can get the funding to preserve the building.

    I went to a Save The Eagle Saloon fund raiser several years ago, and I wonder what has transpired there

      Sad. I had heard about the Karnovsky building, but not this. My Treme rental is a few blocks away and I'd walk buy this place a lot. It was in bad shape before the storm and was an open air drug market for the local junkies. Tootie Montana's house is across the street. Sidney Bechet's house was a few blocks away till they tore it down.

      Hopefully it can be saved, but not holding my breath. The Backstreet Cultural Museum took a hit as well and had to relocate.

      Speaking of Sidney's...the beloved Decatur street liquor store took a hit as well when an entire wall from the building next door fell on top of it as well as Central Grocery. Could be awhile before you can grab a craft beer and muff to take to the river.

        Coincidentally, there's an update in the paper just now about S. Rampart Street generally.

          I saw the Karnovsky building the day after the storm, it was just a pile of rubble. Cops would not let me to get close to it although I think I did take some pix. i gotta check. I was on my way biking to the Greyhound station, trying to find a way out of town. It took 5 more days to finally escape.
