Firehouse Switcheroos

New, 2 comments

As part of the New Orleans Fire Department's wish list that would consolidate fire stations around town, the French Quarter headquarters could move to a city-owned spot in the 300 block of City Park Avenue, leaving the 101-year old firehouse at 317 Decatur St. vacant (does anyone else smell a future condo conversion here?). "Beyond moving its headquarters, the department also wants to consolidate nine stations into four new buildings, including two in the Upper 9th Ward, two in Algiers, three Uptown and two more in Carrollton."
