During a recent trip to New Orleans, I took a detour through the Lower Nineth Ward. If you’re not familiar, the Lower Nineth was the area most devastated by Hurricane Katrina. I expected to find the ghosts of flood damage. I didn’t expect to find abandoned houses scattered all over the neighborhood and a levy that still hasn’t been repaired. So, I did what I do best – came back with my camera. Many of the residents of the area have moved back and live in the houses that have been repaired. Katrina happened in 2005. In 2017, Bourbon Street generated approximately $8 billion in tourist revenue. The Lower Nineth Ward is rich in culture and history, and was designated as a Local Historic District in 1990.
