Neighborhood Gradually Revitalizing...

Yesterday my partner and I went down to the Lower Ninth Ward in New Orleans to see the Make It Right neighborhood.  We found that it was turning into a small closely-knit integrated community.  Towards the River, we took a self-guided tour of the Holy Cross neighborhood.  Turns out that neighborhood is gradually expanding into what used to be known as the Lower Ninth Ward before Katrina, dubbed "The Lower Nine" by Anderson Cooper!  Anyway, there was one house that used to be a concrete cinderblock bunker full of cheap rentals.  The photos show what can be done with a new roof, a paint job, and some landscaping... even with tropical house plants!
