Police have identified two suspects in Monday’s shooting on Hillary Street in the Black Pearl, and say the incident appears unrelated to other recent shootings that have frightened residents there.
The landmark Carrollton diner will open its second New Orleans location Dec. 3 at 540 Chartres St., reports Brett Anderson of The Times-Picayune.
A man was shot shortly before 2 p.m. Monday in the 300 block of Hillary Street in the Black Pearl, police said.
The boil-water advisory may not be lifted until 10 p.m. Saturday to give officials enough time to conduct all the required tests after Friday’s night’s pressure loss, the Times-Picayune is reporting.
It seems like such a simple request: Shed some light on the dark, dangerous streets that criminals use as speedways through the Milan neighborhood.
Gathering for their third month, a group of Milan residents determined to retake control of their neighborhood said Thursday evening that nightfall on some unlit blocks brings a total blackout that provides cover for crime. Getting some streetlights turned on, however, has proven a more difficult task than they expected.
Traveling around the world has never been easier. All it requires is a stroll down Freret Street.
With the opening of the “Ethnographic Terminalia: New Orleans 2010” exhibition Friday night at the Du Mois Gallery, visitors can explore over a dozen countries all without crossing the parish line.
The fight against blight remains a slow one, but the factors affecting that pace are becoming better understood, according to city officials who gathered to discuss the issue Thursday morning.
“We have lots of properties that have guilty judgments against them, but they still a year later look exactly like they did when somebody reported them. … What we didn’t have before was a tracking system,” said Deputy Mayor Andy Koppelin told a packed room of frustrated neighborhood leaders. “We understand the problem has been that you all report, and the city takes some action, but doesn’t solve the problem.”
A burglary similar to last week’s home invasion in Fontainbleau – in which armed men shut off a house’s electricity in order to lure the elderly occupant outside for a robbery – was also reported in the Garden District a few days earlier, police officials said Wednesday.
