Outside of Congo Square and the Mahalia Jackson theater there is precious little there that would attract tourists except to just "go for a ride" on the thing. Wait! Maybe the streetcar can be used to go get a po-boy from Gene's on the corner of Elysian Fields! And I've never known that the streetcar was *defiantly* used or not used. An anger issue perhaps?
This is just something to amuse the tourists.
