  welcome to the lower ninth ward
by doug48

the lower ninth ward is an area of new orleans that was devastated by hurricane katrina in 2005. this low income neighborhood was flooded by a levee break during the storm and partially destroyed almost all of the homes in the area. five years later little has been done to repair this neighboorhood and only a couple of streets have new homes. a disturbling but historically significant area to see in new orleans. from downtown take n. claiborne ave. east about three miles to the lower ninth ward. to see more images of this devastated area see my lower 9 th ward travelogue.
