This store was likely great in its day. However, what i saw was filthy (soup cans, old garbage in plain sight). Ceiling was dropping on the records and moisture was obviously damaging the records, yet it was obvious there was little effort to amend. Moldy faded moisture damaged magazines from 15 years ago were for sale at cover price. It... More

I finally went to Jim Russell's the other day and found that it had closed indeed. Most regrettable! But stores of this type are having a hard time, given the frequency of ordering through the Internet and mail which I do not disapprove of. But I also point to the fact that Denise Russell, who ran the store before it... More

I went to Jim Russell's the other day, and Denise told me sadly that the shop was about to close (which it did). I will not be alone in missing it!

Jim Russell's Records is a shop I became acquainted with in 2007 just after starting a job at nearby Hope House, located within walking distance. When you enter the shop, you come across all CD's, cassettes, videos, DVD's, and electronic equipment the store has for sale. Then there are two back rooms with records. Denise Russell, Jim Sr.'s daughter-in-law, is... More

Staying in Garden District

Neighbourhood Profile
Garden District
Head to the Garden District for the full-on New Orleans experience replete with quaintly clanking streetcars, proudly grandiose antebellum mansions, picture perfect avenues lined with live oaks loaded down with Spanish moss, and a wealth of beautiful churches and many more architectural marvels. Even a brief excursion here makes plain why it’s called the Garden District. So, when you visit be sure to give yourself ample time for admiration at a languidly slow pace befitting such gentile strand of riverside living and to allow you to maximize each opportunity to stop and smell the roses – and whichever other blooms you might come across. While taking it all in, you’d do well to dine at one of the city’s most beloved destinations for regional cuisine. Gourmands from far and wide (and right round the corner) swear the age-old Commander’s Palace is the best restaurant in town – and have been doing so since it opened back in 1880.
