I’m not going down without bleeding. I’m not going down, going down without a fight.

Central City is fascinating to me. This area has been very important to Mardi Gras Indians. You could catch a second line any given Sunday. There is a beautiful YMCA. Oretha Castle Haley corridor is trying to bring more commercial business back to the area. This is an eminently tight-knit community. Food and drinks are the driving force behind this ‘hood being so close. You can get it from the back of a truck, sitting on someone’s porch, or by going to the local watering hole. It’s the one thing all people can enjoy together. Central City is almost its own separate city, with its own rituals. At least, that’s how the folks who live there feel about it.
