Building appears to be still standing, but vacant, from the looks of the GM Street View.

Also, it’s “Dryades” Street, not Dyrades.

The actual address of the Isis was 1515 Dryades. The name of this portion of this street has been changed to Oretha Castle Haley.
It is, and has been at least since the 70’s, Gloryland Mount Gillion Baptist Church. The building is still there, but the original sign, including the marquee, which was there until Katrina, is gone, replaced by another sign.

Lived and worked (at the Isis) in that neighborhood years ago. Anyone else here who may have old photos of Terpsichore Street or Dryades around the Isis they may be willing to share?
