French government to "adopt" Treme

Recommended Posts

Last week, in a press conference with the Mayor and with some French official, it was announced that France, yes...France, will adopt a neighborhood... starting with Treme. I think this is great. I'm not sure of many of the details with this. But, with this city's French ties, it's a match! :thumbsup:

Thats great to hear!

Obviously New Orleans has very strong French ties, and that had to have been an important part of France deciding to adopt Treme. Honestly though, I wasnt really expecting France to do anything like this, but I am very happy that they did!

We now have Covington being adopted by a city in New Jersey, and Treme being adopted by the entire country of France!

I'm normally no big fan of the French but thumbs up for that one.

On the other hand, I guess they share a little of the blame - they are the ones that built the city in such a vulnerable position.

Same here.

I'm very glad that France stepped up to the plate on this one.

This is kind of amusing since the French cant even take care of their own neighborhoods as evidenced by the recent riots. Still, any help is appreciated to get this great city back on its feet.
