So alot of times I wish I could be back in the mountains of Tibet, eating fresh Basmati rice smothered in slow cooked curried lamb, and spicy seasoned lentils and chickpeas, variations and computations of buttery chicken, baked tandori chicken breasts large and delicious.So here I am in the heart of suburbia, New Orleans, specifically in Metarie at 2918 CLEARY AVE, (phone # is 899-7880) and I discover this new place this beautiful Sunday afternoon.  This is a plain Jane looking restaurant from the outside...enter into white table cloths, the latest Indian music going on, and what appears to be a simple buffet.Being the food snob that I am, I questioned the outward appearance.  Well....the food was incredible.  Not to knock the places downtown that I have paid upwards of $35 for a peice ...

The One Metairie Place Condos are in the center of Metairie near causeway and I-10. The photos of the unit I have below give you an idea of the type of units that are for sale. The 2601 Metairie Lawn Building was the first completed and is the best building in the group. The gated complex with reserved parking remains a popular complex. The Metairie location is about 25 minutes to the New Orleans central business district. The condo fees are paid quarterly and the taxes are low in Jefferson Parish. The taxes if you live here would be about $800 per year. You are a mile away from Lakeside Shopping which is the cental shopping center of Jefferson Parish.  2601 Metairie Lawn #220$159,000 ReducedOne Metairie PlaceMetairie, La. 70002  Up the stairs to this patio with two units side by side, ...

I recently had to evict one of my tenants in Jefferson parish Louisiana.  For any one not experienced in the procedure I will fill you in on how to go about it.  The best way is to send a notice to the tenants to vacate apartment by such and such a day.  Hand deliver it to them and keep a copy for yourself.  If they won't leave or you don't think they will then you have to go further.  The Justice of the Peace for the Eastbank is on the 7th floor of the Yenni Building.  Bring a hundred dollars and stick to your story.  The constable will most likely place a notice to evict the same day on the door of the tenant you want evicted.  They will give you a hearing in about five days.  I don't think any where else you can evict someone that fast.  Usually the tenant will leave before this day ...

One of the many choices of condos in the New Orleans Condo is a group of condos that are on the Lake. One of the first condos built as condos about 20 plus years ago where you can enjoy a lifestyle nesr the water. You can walk to the lake and all it has to offer. The New Orleans Marina is steps away as are many places to eart and shop. The taxes are low as the units are in Jefferson Parish. The units are going to be older and more conventional than those in the Warehouse District or Uptown New Orleans. Its a life style choice if you like to ride your bike, walk your dog and not be crowded. Many of the units have been upgraded and tend to be priced as to the size and the view. The common areas tend to be among the best in this area for the price range. The prices will range form 180k to ...

I have sold two condos in the complex this past summer. It offers the best value if you are looking for a one bedroom unit. Its location in Metairie is the prime reason and the fact that all the units have been redone, the insides are new. The two one bedrooms that I sold went for 118k. These are currently still some left from the developer. The developer repaired all the defects and things left undone so we could close on time. Both clients have enjoyed their new place. The taxes are less than $500 per year with the homestead exemption and the condo fees are less than $150 per month. If you are looking for a one or two bedroom in Metairie you should look at the Metro View in Metairie. They are lcoated at 3805 Houma Blvd near East jefferson and the Clearview Shopping Mall.              ...

Monday Night FootballTitans @ Saints Monday, September 24, 2007 7:30 PM CT Louisiana Superdome; New Orleans, La. Let's hope the Saints can find the end zone. Let's hope the home opener get them started. Team is very similar to last year team. With a Bye for the Saints next Sunday, the Saints need to leave in on the field. Let's hope this is it.

  A recent condo conversion from apartments. New Orleans is surrounded by water and rivers so there is little room to build so a lot of things get converted. We should be considered very green because many homes and condos are recycled. These units are in the middle of Metairie in Jefferson Parish. Since Hurricane Katrina Jefferson parish is about the size of the City of New Orleans. Its an easy commute to downtown of about 20 minutes and you are 20 minutes to the airport. The prices are reasonable and the taxes are very low along with the condo fees. Your taxes on a 150k unit is about $750-$800 per year with monthly condo fees of $150.                                                     One Metairie Place CondosIn the Heart of Metairie2601, 2521, 2511 Metairie LawnMetairie, La. 70002  ...
