The Garden District is a neighborhood in New Orleans filled with exquisite old houses (most of which I think were funded by profits from the slave trade). In stark contrast to the opulence of the homes, most sidewalks throughout the Garden District are in a sad state of affairs. I heard from a local that the sidewalks and trees are buckling due to the shallow water table, although I think the problem is compounded by a lack of maintenance. A redeeming feature of the Garden District sidewalks is the lush and varied vegetation— including a banana tree or two.
