I was driving long the lake this week and stumbled across this place, it was a "colored" only beach in New Orleans from 1939-1965. It's overgrown and worse for the wear and only an echo of it's former self. There are some excellent WWW sites with more complete histories of the place if you are interested. There have been some recent proposals to rebuild the place as a modern day resort, but there does not seem to be much going on here. I am sure I'll be re-visiting the place in the future.
