    Ride the red Canal Streetcar all the way from Downtown CBD/French Quarter areas through Mid-City to the end of Canal Street and some of the historic cemeteries, or to City Park/New Orleans Museum of Art/Bayou St. John area. This historic streetcar line started operating in 1861, with the first cars pulled by steam engines, then by mules, and finally in 1894, they became electric.

    This streetcar line ran until 1964, when the service was discontinued and replaced with buses, amidst much controversy. Forty years later, in 2004, the tracks were rebuilt, the line was restored, and service was reinstated. At the end of April and beginning of May, the streetcar gets packed with visitors heading to the Fairgrounds for the Jazz and Heritage Festival, which is walking distance from City Park.

    As the name implies, Mid-City is midway between the Mississippi River and Lake Pontchartrain. Early on, this area was a low lying swampland outside the natural levees of the city, extending all the way to the lake, and was referred to as the "back swamp" or, "back of town". The area became industrialized after the New Basin Canal and the Carondelet Canal were built in the 1830's, which allowed commerce to flow more easily into the City from Lake Pontchartrain.

    However, it wasn't until 1913, when an engineer named Albert Baldwin Wood invented the screw pump, which pumped water out of land that was below sea level, that the area was finally drained. This made the area more habitable and attracted families and new immigrants from the congested city, who began settling there, including, many Sicilians, who to this day, still run restaurants, such as, Mandina's, Liuzza's and others.

    Mid-City has a great neighborhood feel. It has Bayou St. John and City Park, which offer many recreational activities, museums and gardens. It has beautiful oak-lined Jefferson Davis Parkway, a main artery. The Canal Streetcar offers a very scenic ride through the area, down Canal Street to the cemeteries and the park. Lafitte Greenway offers bicyclers and pedestrians an optional way to commute between Mid-City and downtown. There are many restaurants, bars, po-boy shops and businesses as well. For the most part, houses here are more affordable than the adjoining neighborhoods of Uptown, the CBD and French Quarter.

    I am so proud to live in a city that has such a strong and innovative medical community!
    The medical corridor in New Orleans is officially known as BioDistrict New Orleans, a state-enabled economic development district that was created by the State of Louisiana in 2005 for the purpose of developing a bio-sciences industry in New Orleans that will provide research and development, healthcare delivery, and stable, high-paying jobs. The 1,500-acre district spans the Downtown and Mid-City neighborhoods of New Orleans. The economic impact is estimated to be 22,000 new jobs in the city of New Orleans over the next eight to ten years, not only in bio-sciences, but also in banking, law, construction and other service industries that stand to benefit.

    The new MidCity Whole Foods is a great place to pick up fresh and unique produce, meats and fish. They have a variety of organic and natural products - and some great local items as well. The store is smaller than other Whole Foods but perfect for this neighborhood. The store is part of the ReFresh Project - which is a development completed in recent years thanks to the Broad Community Connections nonprofit organization. The ReFresh project and particularly Whole Foods has helped spawn major growth in the Broad Street area.

    Rouses was completely renovated just a couple of years ago and has just about everything you could need! The store is large, well kept and stocked full of fresh produce, fish, and meat. They occasionally have wine tastings and offer sushi and cheese samples. The cheese and meat department has grown since the renovations. And being a local grocery they pride themselves on carrying the best local products. Plus their florals - and especially their roses - hold up really well!

    According to their site, Café Degas is the longest running French Bistro in New Orleans. It was named after the 19th century French Impressionist, Hilaire Germain Edgar Degas. Degas spent some time in the city starting in 1872 and lived down the street from this restaurant.

    A visit to the New Orleans Botanical Garden is one of my favorite pastimes. The garden, located within City Park, is home to over 2,000 varieties of plants from around the world, as well as many mature live oaks. Sculptures from the Mexican-born artist Enrique Alferez (1901-1999) are scattered throughout the garden as well.
