New Orleans, Louisiana (AHN) - After the destructive Hurricane Katrina two years ago, street cars started to roll again for the first time in Garden District in St. Charles Avenue on Saturday where historical and beautiful mansion lies.

Even though the street is only half open, many residents and passersby, who witnessed the reopening were very joyous to see the return of the glorious 1920s era green cars, which according to witnesses, sign of city's recovery from the devastating hurricane that struck the city more than two years ago.

I'm a student at Tulane, and we're all eager to have the trolly fully running, hopefully sooner rather than later.

On our way home from Touro Hospital yesterday we saw one and decorated for Christmas to boot. For two years I've been crossing the neutral ground looking out for street cars (old habits die hard). It was so nice to be able to cross the neutral ground (on Saint Charles that is) and actually have a street car to worry about. Welcome back old friend; we've missed you.

I was in New Orleans last weekend interviewing for a job. The streetcar progress was awesome. One of them was decorated for the holidays with garlands and bright red velvet bows. On mid-Saturday morning, there was standing room only on one car that picked me up outside the Hampton Inn. I can't wait until it gets down to the universities.

The Streetcars have always been a part of New Orleans history. A distant relative of mine was once a streetcar operator. I'm happy to seem them put back into service.
