Anybody lost a chicken? (And other conversations Uptown)
I’ve been using the NextDoor app to keep up with events in Uptown New Orleans. It’s designed to keep neighbors in touch with one another, and is a great platform for announcing local events, things for sale, lost and found, and a helpful resource for all kinds of things.
It is also the most entertaining thing I’ve found to read since Chris Rose wrote for the Times Picayune back in the day – I’ll bet the geeks who made this app had no idea how surreal its content would be in the hands of NOLA neighbors.
Really. You’ve got to download NextDoor and keep in touch with your ‘hood – here’s just one thread I’ve been following for a few weeks. I just had to do screenshots, rather than try to recreate the posts out of context here. Only in NOLA can an innocent question become a hilarious chain of local commentary like this.
