Recovering the Ninth Ward

Image 5 of 19


Three men walk through the Ninth Ward which was devastated by a flood after a barge broke through the levy after Hurricane Katrina. Most areas here are still empty although some families have returned to rebuild. Five years after Katrina devastated New Orleans, parts have been rebuilt and are prospering, while others are still derelict.
