I took this photo to show how well the live oak tree sustained the hurricane. All over New Orleans the live oaks are bruised but still standing.
When the Academy had a boarding school and the Ursuline nuns were still a cloistered order, this was the door where the girls met their dates to go out. There is a little grillwork window in the door where the nuns would speak to the dates before letting the girls out the door. This entrance is still known as "the date door."
