One of my favorite lines from the play is when Blanche DuBois describes the Desire streetcar.

"They told me to take a streetcar named Desire, transfer to one called Cemeteries, ride six blocks and get off at Elysian Fields".

Streetcars still exist in New Orleans. The oldest is called St. Charles which has been in continuous service along St. Charles Avenue for almost 200 years.

Elysian Fields is one of the longest avenues in New Orleans. He goes for several miles from the Mississippi River to Lake Pontchatrain. Desire is also a street in New Orleans which is not that far from Elysian Fields.

Hi Mason,

If you are interested in reading more books by Jon Meacham, I would suggest you look at 2 of my favorite books by him.

Andrew Jackson - The American Lion

Impeachment - An American History. (Doesn't include Trump).

I particular like reading about the bios of the presidents and how the got to be president. Of course, my favorite president is Thomas Jefferson, not only was he our best president and one of the greatest thinkers of his time, but he also was one of the architects of our democracy.
