None of the earlier houses remain on Clark Street. The Municipal Repair Plant is still located at the end of the street (it now borders on the Pontchartrain Expressway instead of the New Basin Canal as earlier). To the left in this photograph is a former Albertson's supermarket that closed before Katrina; its fate is uncertain at this time, but the store's parking lot is now being used to house trailers, firetrucks and other vehicles. The small trailer "village" on the right is one of a number of such sites in the neighborhood.
