With a recent move to New Orleans, there have been changes, much work and new experiences for me, some of which are presented in this Newsletter of Stephen M. Long, Architect.  A Vintage House renovation in the city's Lower Garden District for which I served as Project Architect is featured, some historic properties along the Mississippi River Road are visited, and a fleeting glimpse of a German housing project can be seen in an experimental video of the band Mint Julep.  A neo-traditional planned community and my new residence there are also presented.
