Our daily constitutional often takes us by the former Louisiana Center for Retarded Citizens, housed in a solid rock of a building on Dauphine Street near Satsuma Cafe.

The building currently houses Piety Street Recordings.

This is where Cash Money did work for a time prior to Katrina.

Over the years, producer Mark Bingham has seen musicians like Superjoint Ritual, Marianne Faithful, Nick Lowe, Dr. John and Monk Boudreaux come through these doors.

Piety Street Recordings opened in 2001.

If you live in the Bywater prior to 1980 this is where you went to buy stamps, pick up your mail or drop off a letter; a post office, right in the heart of our neighborhood.
