LOWER NINTH WARD, NEW ORLEANS

Considered one of the most famous neighborhoods in America, New Orleans’ Lower Ninth Ward is presently undergoing a transformation from the poster child of post-Katrina devastation into the epitome of green, sustainable living. I met with key players on the ground to discuss how this is taking shape and how the environment is playing an active roll in the psyche of the Lower Ninth Ward’s returning populace.

    I was hoping to reach Neal Moore, but I own an island in the Mississippi River near Memphis and wanted to see if he was interested in stopping in on his Mississippi River tour. The island is 250 acres, is located in the middle of the river, and is quite beautiful. I can be contacted at the above email address.
