More details on the agenda will be forthcoming.
1. We will probably have Yolanda and Frank from NOPD District 6 to discuss police issues in our neighborhood.

THE NEIGHBORHOOD: Faubourg Delachaise in the Uptown New Orleans Historic District, bounded roughly by Magnolia Street on the north, Tchoupitoulas Street on the south, Delachaise Street on the east and Amelia Street on the west (although the Faubourg Delachaise Neighborhood Association uses Magazine Street as the northern boundary and Peniston Street as the western). The faubourg dates to 1855, when the heirs of plantation owner Philippe Pierre August Delachaise subdivided their holdings for development. Streets were named in honor of family members, including Antonine Street, which was named for Delachaise’s wife, Marie Antonine Foucher.
THE BLOCK: The 800 block of Antonine Street on the odd-numbered, or east side, between Laurel on the north and Annunciation on the south. Magazine Street’s shops, restaurants and the iconic Harry’s Ace Hardware are just a couple of blocks away, and the quintessential corner store/restaurant — Barcia’s Grocery — is at the Annunciation end of the block.

THE NEIGHBORHOOD: Faubourg Delachaise, originally the Delachaise plantation before its subdivision in 1855 and now part of the Uptown New Orleans Historic District.
The original Faubourg Delachaise was bounded roughly by Magnolia Street on the north, Tchoupitoulas Street on the south, Delachaise Street on the east and Amelia Street on the west, but today’s Faubourg Delachaise Neighborhood Association uses Magazine Street as the northern boundary and Peniston Street as the western.
THE BLOCK: The 3400 block of Annunciation Street on the odd-numbered, or north, side, between Delachaise Street on the east and Aline Street on the west.
When you go hunting for the Street Walk block, don’t be surprised if you discover more than one 3400 block: There are two, and the walk is in the upriver one.
The block is not far from the intersection of Louisiana Avenue and Magazine Street, where shops and cafes offer residents and visitors ample diversions.
THE HOUSES: Seven houses, including four Eastlake double shotguns, a Creole cottage, a Neoclassical Revival double and a two-story corner store/house.
