||I would like to suggest an alternative to demolition for 3017-19 Bienville Street, New Orleans LA 70119.
The specific alternative I would like to suggest is: renovation. As a source of funding for renovation, I'd like to suggest the Historic Building Recovery Grant Program. I believe this house would be eligible. More info at http://www.crt.state.la.us/hp/HBGrants.htm
Also, the owner should feel free to contact the Mid-City Neighborhood Organization if he or she needs help figuring out alternatives to demolition. Their website is at http://mcno.org/
This house is part of the distinctive housing stock of a national historic district. Please don't tear it down.
Of course, I make this comment without full awareness of any structural problems the house may have. I merely observed from the street (I live one block away) that it looks to be in pretty good shape.
