For those New Orleanians who live in the Central City neighborhood, exuding style and character is the norm. This gentleman who said that people there call him “Tippit” – sports a brand new pair of red suspenders while taking his afternoon sidewalk stroll. A man of exceptional cordiality, he spoke to me as if I were an old friend, recommending that I go to the 2nd Line Parade that was about to step off that afternoon.
