Urban Planning & Public Space

Dear New Orleans,

I love you even when you smell like daiquiri-vomit and horse piss. I love you even when I'm hungover and the line at the Camellia Grill is waaay too long. I love you even when there's a hurricane coming and I'm scared for my family. I love you, so love yourself and let's stop hurting each other.

Public Safety

Dear New Orleans,

Can we get some drivers that yield to pedestrians or maybe some working pedestrian walk signals?

Arts & Culture

Dear New Orleans,

Lying around lazy in the heat eating snowballs. Climbing live oak trees in the park. Smoking on the levee. Late nights on Frenchmen with gutterpunk bands who smell like they've slept in piss. Chasing down street cars. I miss live music every night and coffee at local cafes in the morning, and I know I romanticize the crap out of you because I miss home, and I know you've got a lot of problems, but you've got to be the most beautiful city there is.
