Two Uptown Fires Leave Damage to Domiciles
All that smoke billowing from the area between Magazine Street and Tchoupitoulas this morning was coming from an abandoned service station at the corner of Constance and Peniston. The building, which was slated for demolition, burned to the ground in the blaze. The fire also spread to the side of a home next door, but no one was injured. The fire was mostly extinguished by noon, but crews continued mopping up into the afternoon. Uptown Messenger has details from the scene.

Joseph Street Going One-Way
by Brad Rhines
Between Whole Foods, Pinkberry, Slice, and St. Joe’s Bar, poor little Joseph Street can’t get no relief. The narrow block between Magazine and Camp Streets has become a crowded corridor for Uptown shoppers coming from, going to, and parking along this busy stretch of Magazine. Well, no more - the City hopes. Starting Friday morning this block of Joseph Street will be converted from a two-way street to a one-way street, with traffic heading lakebound (from Magazine Street toward Camp Street).
