Five Years Later

Five years after Hurricane Katrina here is a photo of what every street still looks like in the Lower Ninth Ward. It was an experience for sure to go in and drive around and see what is going on now. The City of New Orleans is working right now (according to city signs seen while driving) on repaving streets and redoing sidewalks. I however did not see more than 3 or 4 streets being redone in about a five mile radius. There are people living in the area and we even saw a handful of new homes but 90% of the whole area just looks like this. Many, many homes have been torn down but as you can see on the side of this one it clearly reads "Do not demolish".
