NEW ORLEANS (WGNO)- Two beautiful sounding streets in Lakeshore are named for jewels, but they are home to an ugly-looking pothole.

Sardonyx Street and Amethyst Street look more like a mountain range that a street.

The area looks like something is trying to come up from the ground and break through the asphalt.

Folks say the city has been out to "work" on it, but all they ever really do is spray paint the area.

Neighbors say it has gotten so bad, the entire intersection has to be torn up and the drains redone, but there only seems to be enough funds for band-aid treatments.
