I want
in New Orleans.
Sandy Rosenthal, Founder of Levees.org

The Governor of Louisiana just issued a State of Emergency due to a pumps crisis in New Orleans. Apparently, too many drainage pumps were offline last Saturday when a summer thunderstorm badly flooded portions of the East Bank. Ever since the deluge, Levees.org's civil engineer – H.J. Bosworth Jr – has been the go-to expert for nearly every TV and radio station in the city.

To stay updated, we urge you to follow us on Twitter and/or Facebook.

Postmates is the best option available to Metairie and New Orleans. Download app and create a custom list from any grocery or business for that matter. (Only restricted items are alcohol and tobacco products.)

Thanks for the heads up Burk ... although expensive, Postmates is a good interim option.

I doubt very much that I am the only person in this city that is embarrassed by how truly behind New Orleans is regarding the ability to order groceries online and have them delivered. I suppose the Walmart pick up thing is somewhat of a start but I doubt I'd actually use Walmart for groceries but at least they have lists, which is more than I can say for any of these other services. Instacart, Peapod, Shipt, heck, aliens from space, please come here to New Orleans and give us an efficient online grocery shopping and delivery service! :)

Debbie: I've emailed Robert's a dozen times and called too. I never heard anything back. They are the prime example of why I always told Website design clients that it is better to not have a website than to have a broken one and boy is theirs ever broken.

My husband despises Walmart's groceries or we'd be using their service. They'll gather your groceries at a Walmart in New Orleans East and you can pick them up or have someone pick them up for you. If you incorporate that with their favorites list, that will save you far more time than anything Dat Anyone who Delivers will save you because it takes longer to shop than it does to drive there—which is why those lists are so wonderful.

The implications of Amazon’s $13.7-billion Whole Foods Market purchase will go significantly beyond the world of grocery stores, potentially reshaping retail districts in downtowns and suburban shopping areas across America.

For better or worse, Amazon executes extremely well and could be the first company to provide grocery delivery service at the quality we'd all like to see. Of course there are tradeoffs in terms supporting local businesses ...

There so many pl moving to new Orleans plus the taxes is is so ridiculously high and ppl want to have great experiences shopping for there new apartment r home. and they don't want the crazy prices tags for luxury . I love nice things at reasonable price that I can afford on a glam chic fashionista Budget so if you find it in your heart to bring a IKEA to New Orleans I'll be so happy and grateful and I think everyone else will too thank you Angela W .

Agreed. I am a loyal IKEA shopper and furnished three previous homes with IKEA furniture and house wares when I lived in Houston, London, and Dublin. Now that I am in NOLA I miss IKEA sorely. High quality, good design and reasonable prices. Nothing in NOLA comes near it.

The Near Miss Project: Quantifying Cyclist Comfort and Safety
Monday, June 19, 2017, 12:00pm - 1pm CT
Webinar

Fear of being hit and seriously injured by a car is a major deterrent for people considering whether to bike on city streets. At the same time, city transportation departments use historical crash data to prioritize street design projects where people have been killed and seriously injured. But new research shows that for cyclists, near misses, close calls, and aggressive behavior from other road users can also have a significant effect on people’s biking behaviors or even their decision to ride at all. How can data about these cycling near-misses better inform city transportation policy and street design?

Join NACTO for a conversation with Dr. Rachel Aldred, founder of the UK’s Near Miss Project, to learn how her research has been used to create cycling policy and design improvements in the UK before injuries occur, and why high-quality design is crucial for increased ridership. Dr. Aldred will touch on various approaches to near miss data collection, and how they can help cities provide a more comfortable biking experience, improve biking rates, and make streets safer for everyone.

Hi folks!

This Neighborland post (ahead of it's time as it was) was the inspiration behind Crescent Cart - our local Grocery Delivery Service available to residents of the greater New Orleans Area (and beyond).

Please check us out: www.crescentcart.com/

Your feedback & criticism are welcome (and encouraged) - We're new, (but growing!) and would LOVE to hear what you think! Without customers - there is no Crescent Cart; We NEVER forget this - ya'll are #1.

Since day 1 we've strived to offer you: the most competitive pricing / fastest delivery options available / absolute easiest ordering process / and a number of other features that no other online grocery delivery services offer here in NOLA.

We are JUST getting started and have exciting plans to expand set for this year (soon you'll be able to shop for products just like you would from the industry leading grocery & homegoods delivery apps like Instacart and Google Express)!

P.s. Why not give us a try? Your first delivery is FREE!

My bad. I couldn't find it. Hopefully we can chat and figure that out. This is something I've been hoping to solve for the five years I've lived here.

It was phenomenal chatting with you Christian! Thank you so much for that opportunity! It's remarkable how much you understand about user experience design!! As you know, we are launching the third iteration of our business very soon- which will include all of the features that you want and more!!

You think very differently from most folks- and you won't accept 2nd rate. You're certainly a changemaker in the city of New Orleans!
