My last post on the city Detroit, which made Newsweek's list of the America's Ten Dying Cities, last January. Also on that list was New Orleans, one of my favorite cities.
I am still trying to compose my thoughts for a New Orleans post/response.
In the mean time here's a newsreel/documentary on New Orleans from the 1920's. It's a bit long but but great footage of the city and some Mardi Gras parades. I love the animated charts!
