Tyler and Matthias' cottage, shared by kitty Bruce and pitbull rescue Omie Wise, is hard to miss when coming up their street. The Crayola-esque hues make the house stand out amongst the neighbors, many of which are in pre-renovation state. The St Roch neighborhood is one of deep history, though it may be best known for the local cemetery, which was founded by a German priest in 1867 during the yellow fever epidemic. Wandering through the neighborhood, dumpsters and construction crews signal a turning. The neighborhood is experiencing a rebirth.
