This is THE way to tour the Lower 9th Ward and learn the history. It's an amazing organization that's helping people displaced by Katrina rebuild and return to their homes. The Director of the organization is as passionate as can be. She took our family out for an almost 2 hour tour, showed us the devastation, the government screw-ups, and... 更多
We headed to Cafe Dauphine, I believe the only restaurant in this still blighted area for lunch and it was great. Its also a 10 minute walk from the 9th ward's river access. Its shocking to see how it remains still such a work in progress. The streets are as if they were mortar bombed yesterday, even in front of... 更多
About 10 minutes drive from the French Quarter. It's been a long time from Katrina but we wanted to see what it looked like and stopped at NPS Ranger Station in French Quarter and they directed us to proper location where Brad Pitt helped in the recovery. There isn't anything to see as far as the break in the levees... 更多
Went for a drive through the Ninth Ward just to see what it looked like 11 years on. Not much to say about it really, it's just a sad place to visit. There are still some houses that are boarded up with overgrown yards. Just like other reviewers, I can confirm that the roads are terrible there...but most of New... 更多
. Area very rough . do not go after dark. Take a tour bus and stay on bus.Area has had little to no repairs after Katrina. Even the police avoid the area.
Nine years after our first visit (and complete destruction after Katrina), we returned to see what has changed in these years. We used our own car, but there are also organized tours (probably a good idea when you don't know the neighbourhood). The neighbourhood is slowly being rebuilt, though some parts are going back to nature probably because the original... 更多
So, while in New Orleans, I decided to go for myself to see what the famous lower 9th ward is all about today. I have to tell you that it was extremely emotional to me to visit here. In all honesty and not without making any socio political comment, I was really surprised the state in which this area finds... 更多
Really grabs your heart to see what the people went through. Some reconstruction but Mississippi river still 17' above the city of New Orleans.
Did a little drive around the 9th Ward on a Sunday morning to experience what it was like in the Katrina ravaged neighborhood. Many people still live there so we didn't want to be too voyeuristic ... but the abandoned homes & empty lots give you the sad feeling of what those who live there had to go through.
Visited numerous areas and it is clear the community still has a way to go. The new high school about to open should help with the community building.
