Yeah, this is kind of selfish of me, but I can't seem to find any adult dance classes hip hop, salsa, ballroom whatever that a) aren't in Metairie or b) a part of a gym membership package.
Also, I like the fine dining aspect of it. Making comfort food seem of great value. I love the idea of training area youth in fine dining of course, but sometimes I feel like there needs to be a restaurant smack in the middle of Central City for the already trained. The professional. Somewhere for people to show off their Cafe Reconcile skills. Somewhere for people to spend stupid money and feel like they got helped more than they felt like they were helping.
It does seem like a wide open market niche. What buildings are suitable for an endeavor like that? Why hasn't it worked before? Does anyone know why Freret can revitalize but LaSalle can't? Not trying to be antagonistic, I can't figure out what the big differences are at face value.
I certainly could. I am a new resident to Central City, though, and am not sure that my network (spread out across the city) will care too much about this idea. However, I do have many friends engaged enough in their own neighborhoods to understand my interest.
I guess the first step is to confirm with the schools mentioned above what times they provide transportation until and whether most of their children are, in fact, Central City residents.
Hey dude, it's Mal.
Let's look at some of the places that offer these services to community members for free and every day outside of libraries (the fight to use Facebook and Twitter in libraries is insane!).
One in mind, the TCA building near Washington and Jefferson Davis on Thalia by the gas station.
I'd like to examine what they're doing to get the word out about their resources (not only several computers, but meeting space, dailies, a playground, etc.) to their community without having the place saturated with people wasting time and space.
I agree. I don't take the streetcar often, but every time it takes that screeching turn around Lee Circle, I think of how unseemly the whole experience has become.
This idea could use much more fleshing out, more maps, more input from parents.
I understand that some Central City schools have their own bus for this type of things, can anyone speak to the school bus schedules of Central City schools? In particular, Harney and NOCP?
