M Street in Metairie Lawn
This is M Street in the Metairie Lawn Cementry of New Orleans. Some call this millionaires row. It’s should be on everyones “to do list” This is just one of the many tombs in the area that stand out. The McCan Tomb is picutred here. Normall you can find something about the family and what they did living. I Could find nothing on this one except other pictures of the tomb.
An Old Metairie home just across the line from New Orleans. This is one of the early subdivisions in Jeffers Parish as people spread out in the 1930’s. The tile roof and basements were popular during this time period. The style of the street lamps gives you a big clue as well. This is not the norm as it looks like something you would see in Mid City by the park. It is not that far away. Love the steps………
Old Metairie Homes, The blend of old and new homes! Many have been fully restored, while others are waiting their turn.Saturday, November 21st, 2009
Old Metaire homes are a blend of the origional homes like this one that was built in the early 1950’s and newer homes. The land values are so great that sometimes the house is worth nothing, its all in the land. One great thing is that many of these cottages have been restored and are prized in this market. One of the first suburbs outside of the city has today become a prime location for those wanting a blend of the city and the country feel.
