Desire streetcar ran down Decatur through the French Market, over to Royal and down to Canal, then back down Bourbon.

"They told me to take a streetcar named Desire, and then transfer to one called Cemeteries and ride six blocks and get off at Elysian Fields" Blanche DuBois "A Streetcar Named Desire", 1947

Where’s our new streetcar?
