New Orleans, a Distinctly American City

Quote:
"While exploring New Orleans, I kept getting the feeling I was somewhere else. It's a city more diverse than I had imagined and certain areas had me feeling more like I was in France, San Francisco or Boswash than Louisiana. You don't have to agree with me, this is just the vibe I got and I thought I'd share with this first thread, thanks for looking!
Hopefully this thread will provide sharp contrast from the previous thread, showing the distinctly American side of the city. Thanks for viewing!

Like i said in the other thread about New Orleans, the city looks very nice; i am glad to see those areas fixed (after the Katrina)

It's a little bit gritty, but it gives the city character imo.

Hm. I don't think the whole city is recovered already from that terrible disaster. It also looks a bit messy to me. But I think this city will look much cleaner when totally recovered from Katrina
