Just a beautiful day outside our building! A streetcar passes in front of the Tulane University School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine as it rolls down Canal Street on Monday morning (Feb. 29). Traveling north, the Canal line takes riders on a scenic route from the Mississippi River to the cemeteries at City Park Avenue, as well as to Esplanade Avenue near the New Orleans Museum of Art.
