The streetcar is driven from either end & seat backs are flipped for the return trip. As I've mentioned on the 78-L site, just as St. Charles Ave. ends, the streetcar takes a bend, becomes Carrolton Ave. & several blocks later terminates at Claiborne Ave.
Just after the bend GET OFF .... cross the street & enter Camellia Grill. Malts, hamburgers, ice box pies & pecan waffles to die for. don't put anything on the waffle until you taste it, otherwise the combined butter/sugar hit may put you to sleep on the trip back.
By the way, if you look left & up just as the streetcar starts into the bend, you'll see the levee. At that point only the top of the mast of very large ships can be seen.
Oh btw, Mr. B's in the Quarter is home to the best bread pudding in town, warm with brandy sauce.
A proper visit to NO means that after 3 days, you have to leave as you shouldn't be able to fit into your clothes without a fight.
