Freret Street is thriving with new eateries, bars and small businesses. There's been a big grassroots effort in that neighborhood. They've got a farmers/arts market once a month that's caught on.
The latest success is St. Claude Avenue, which I suppose was a shopping district in the 1920s or 30s, judging by the architecture. The St. Roch Neighborhood area is coming back big time.
It was hoped the streetcar would be extended to Poland at its northernmost edge, but now it is going to stop at Esplanade. That might have brought more tourists to the neighborhood. They can walk.

I read that Joan Rivers is performing at the Healing Center on Aug. 21. Sounds odd, but apparently true despite that most of the activities there revolve around yoga and meditation.
