Well that's not keeping them out of the cemeteries or the lakeside fringes of the Quarter. If there was actual stuff for them to do around Claiborne they'd be there. It doesn't seem to be clouding the buzz around the greenway either. Bourbon and the lower end of Canal have proven themselves to be more dangerous than that stretch of Claiborne. Of course, there isn't anything on N. Claiborne until you get below Orleans.

Just look at Freret a couple years ago and look at it now.

So rumor has it that Traçage is back on and that the Riverwalk is up for redevelopment.

Where did you see news about Tracage?

About the Riverwalk, what would you, personally, want to see? Are there any proposals?

Just word of mouth, nothing specific.
As far Riverwalk, I think that it needs to attract locals. It mainly caters to tourist, but it's like in the "duck off", only having crowds during major event weekends and when cruise ships roll up. I'd like to see it fill the void left by the New Orleans Centre and the Plaza, during their better days). I don't know anyone who doesn't hate having to go to Jefferson Parish to spend money unless they already live over there. I say make it competitive with Lakeside, add a parking deck with validated parking and I don't see why people won't come.

Would love to go see a show in the Joy.

Is Canal Place used enough? I've only been once but it was nearly empty. A constantly busy shopping mall would be good for that end of Canal though.

Before Katrina, Shops at Canal Place was on the same level as the 2nd floor of the Galleria. Gucci, Burberry, etc. are no longer there, but it's still more on the high-end side. I wish that there was more mainstream stuff available in that area. The entire corridor from the upper Covention Center and lower Tchoupitoulas all the way down to Wal-Mart is untapped IMO.

I remember the higher end places, and I do think the Riverwalk should be more mainstream and middle class, like Memorial City mall.
Again, I'd agree, that corridor is overlooked.

I even think that one of those urban shopping centers that they have in places like New York, Boston, L.A., etc. would be cool with anchors like TJ Maxx and Home Goods.

Another thing I think could work here would be programs like CarShare or ZipCar, although on a smaller scale.
