St Bernard Parish, Louisiana
In the local vernacular:
Immediately south and east of NOLA by way of Route 46.
Much to St Bernard: a place of varied people, culture and places, Arabi is just the start, the beginning.
In the Arabi district the color and flavor of New Orleans’ French Quarter easily flows into St Bernard.
A walk down the well policed Angela Street produced lots of interactions with the local residents and lots of exposure to local homes, local ‘color’ & local architecture.
Note the terra cotta roof ridge tiles and decorative ridge caps.
No one could tell me what the decorative pieces were called: one guy said that in his youth he and his pals called them ‘duck tails’.
Deep skinny lots that went back forever; laid out back in the day of frontage taxes. Some homes had a second story out back, known as a ‘camelback’.
A few shots on Friscoville Street.
