New Orleans Ninth Ward
My assignment (for Bnai Brith) took me briefly over to the Ninth Ward of New Orleans, devastated last year by Hurricane Katrina. While there was a lot of rebuilding in process, the area still evidences ragged scars of abandonment.
The new buildings are from a project called Musician's Village, which is creating a community of about 700 homes for New Orleans' hard-hit musicians.
