Curfew Update From Idiot Hall

Sep 8, 2008 by

I just pulled this from a press release, dated last Friday, September 5th.

Please note that the Marigny Proper & Bywater, from Elysian Fields to the Industrial Canal, are in the 70117, and still under “extended” dusk ’til dawn curfew, because some idiot has a sharpie and a city map, and little or no clue what the fuck they’re doing or who lives where.
And they run the city.
Please read on:

City makes curfew adjustments
NEW ORLEANS — Mayor C. Ray Nagin has extended the curfew in place since Hurricane Gustav from dusk until dawn to 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. in most areas of the city starting tonight.

Exceptions have been made for business corridors in the city with re-established populations and adequate lighting, Nagin said. The curfew for these areas will be from 2 a.m. to 6 a.m. The affected ZIP codes are 70112 (Canal Street from Interstate 10 to the Mississippi River), 70115 (Uptown), 70116 (Marigny) and 70130 (Warehouse District).

Restaurant and tourism industry officials have pressed Nagin for the last two days to lift the curfew in order to stimulate business for the weekend, with the first New Orleans Saints home game set for noon Sunday and fans expected to come to the city as soon as tonight.
