New Orleans, Post-Katrina

Recommended Posts

I have many pictures to post, but I'll start this thread off with two shots looking up and down Canal Street, which were taken 11/12/05. You can clearly see, that activity is quickly returning to the city.

Very impressive photographs! I'm glad to see that life is returning to the city. Let's hope that some of those beautiful facades on Canal Street may see complete restoration.

And now, come the pictures from neighborhoods around N.O.

You can easily see how much downtown N.O. and areas close to the Mississippi river were spared compared to neighborhoods closer to Laake Ponchartrain, and the Gulf of Mexico, just by comparing the pictures above, to the pictures below.

You have to take alot of these pics with a grain of salt. We all have to remember that New Orleans was NOT the cleanest city around. It is all about the history, the culture, the people. I was in N.O in August of this year, and even then, many things were under construction.

Yea, it is pretty bad once you get out of downtown, uptown, or the French Quarter. All of these neighborhoods would most likely already be fully up and running, if the levee's had not broken.

The new issue is, that many residents do want to come back and rebuild a slab house in these neighborhoods, especially Lakeview. I really dont get this at all. There was an article in the Times Picayune a few weeks ago, with an interview with a scientist from New York, who said that if people were to raise there houses anywhere from 5-12 feet, depending on which area of the bowl your in, that you would be safe from flooding from a major hurricane, even if New Orleans doesnt get cat. 5 levee protection. This is what residents of N.O. did hundreds of years ago, before the levee's were even built.

And now there is an arguement going on in the LA government about new building codes for the height of houses in N.O. and so on..

This is just a huge mess. :unsure:

I just got back from New Orleans and wanted to share a photo of the flood level that I took while on a swamp tour just outside of NO off of I-10:
