In These Times (14 April 2010)

“Despite being barely more than a mile from City Hall, the Sixth Ward neighborhood of New Orleans seems like it’s as far from the levers of power as a place could be. The edges of the cracked and potholed streets in my part of this neighborhood sprawl haphazardly into tiny front yards, as there are no sidewalks. With minimal traffic, residents normally walk down the middle of the street. On many blocks, fewer than half of the houses are actually occupied—vines have engulfed many of the abandoned structures, and squatters and drug users find shelter within their confines.”
