New Orleans, Louisiana
I love my neighborhood because there are colorful houses everywhere and Bacchanal is right down the street. I love it because most of my family and friends live within a five block radius of where I live. I love it because of stuff like this. I love it because whenever you're running late you have a built-in excuse. "Sorry. The train was passing, I was stuck on the other side." Those of you who live here know EXACTLY what I'm talking about.
I love the random and bizarre coffee shops, I love the fact that Elizabeth's, where I once had the most incredible paneed rabbit my taste buds have ever experienced, is only six blocks away. I love riding my bike behind the floodwall down by the river, hoping not to get harassed by the harbor police. I love the fact that my two favorite street names in the city of New Orleans, Piety and Desire, run parallel, and a block apart. One right after the next.
Which makes perfect sense, when you think about it...
