The French Quarter: Nostalgia Revived

I'm somehow quite familiar with this historic Vieux Carre' building, but can't place its exact location in the Quarter. Perhaps at one time the downstairs portion served as a bar, small restaurant or local grocery store. Nineteen years ago, the French Quarter corner building shown here served as a setting for the movie Down by Law (1986) starring, among others, Ellen Barkin and Tom Waites. This recent photograph, taken in January 2005, reveals that the building had already slipped into a relatively shabby state of marked disrepair.

This is a picture of the same French Quarter building taken eleven months later (in December 2005), which shows the severe damage inflicted upon it by Hurricane Katrina. If anyone is aware of the location of this building, please enter a comment to let me know.
