...according to this map data for google earth:

katrina damage assessment

( google earth required )

...there doesn't seem to be any flooding in that area. Still something worth seeing!

Photos[edit]

Photos and/or photo uploads are needed.

  • HABS photos may be available for the district or for individual houses within it.
  • Some of NRHP photos linked in article may be NPS owned, hence potentially public domain.
  • New photos would be helpful.

Note we already have more than 100 photos in the galleries on Commons. I'd be happy to take and upload more. We're busy with Carnival for the next week, but I should have a half day free to take some photos the week after. What would you like photos of? -- Infrogmation (talk) 14:41, 29 January 2008 (UTC)

Mary McLeod Bethune Elementary is NOT in Garden District[edit]

Even though this article:

says "At the Mary McLeod Bethune Elementary School, tucked into the city's residential Garden District, the hallways smelled of fresh paint, and new books were on display on the library shelves. In fact, everything was new in the school, principal Mary Hynes-Smith told students and parents assembled on the playground outside. "This is going to be a wonderful, wonderful school year," Hynes-Smith said. "We're going to make these kids the smartest kids in the world.""

In fact it is in Hollygrove, which is a distance away:

  • Schleifstein, Mark. "Reaction cool to planned school shuffle." The Times-Picayune. Monday May 2, 2005. "A prime example is the proposed closure of Mary M. Bethune Elementary in Hollygrove, which received a positive two-star rating from the state, with a school performance score of 101 on a scale of 250. When the accountability system was introduced in 1999, the goal was to get all schools to score 100 by the year 2009."

Lusher Charter School Willow Campus is NOT in the Garden District[edit]

This source said that Lusher Charter School Willow campus is in the Garden District:

  • Dingerson, Leigh. "Unlovely: How the Market is Failing the Children of New Orleans." in: Dingerson, Leigh, Bob Peterson, Barbara Miner, and Stephanie Walters (editors). Keeping the Promise?: The Debate Over Charter Schools. Rethinking Schools, 2008. p. 21. ISBN 0942961382, 9780942961386.
    "One of the first school proposals came from pre-existing Lusher K-6 charter school in the city's affluent and well-connected Garden District."

But Willow Campus, which had been home to Lusher since 1917, is at 7315 Willow Street New Orleans, Louisiana 70118 which is not in the Garden District and is on the other side of Tulane University WhisperToMe (talk) 17:40, 30 March 2013 (UTC)

Batiste Academy/Live Oak Elementary is not in the Garden District[edit]

This source:

says: "Last year, the Batiste building on Constance Street in the Garden District was occupied by Live Oak Elementary."

But using maps and another Times Picayune article, it's actually in the Irish Channel, New Orleans community to the south WhisperToMe (talk) 06:59, 1 April 2013 (UTC)

More than one architect and builder responsible[edit]

There were several prominent and early/original architects responsible for the Garden District's residential architecture and planning, circa 1858 - 1870.

Will upload and link images for W. C. Fulham's obituary, photograph, and Google map of the area he planned, including sewer, gas, and water mains as soon as account verified.

W. C. Fulham designed and laid out all those blocks between Napoleon, Gen Pershing (was Berlin), and Milan from Carondelet to LaSalle (was Howard). In 1929, 56 of his homes were still standing in this part of town. One example of his homes, which his youngest daughter lived in, is at 1716 Milan St. There are still others still standing.
