Photos du Jour: New Orleans from the 45th Floor
I attended a pre-Bacchus party held at a CBD office building on Saturday afternoon. The view--aided by a crystal clear sky--from the office suite was fantastic. Here are a few examples of what I mean . . .
The Vieux Carre/Jackson Square
The Vieux Carre Riverfront, Faubourg Marigny, Bywater, and the Lower Ninth Ward. The MR-GO induced eroded wetlands (open water) north of the Lower Ninth Ward and Arabi are quite visible.
The Crescent City Connection, CBD Highrises, and Carnival Cruise Ships. These cruise ships are currently being used as temporary housing for law enforcement/emergency personnel but are scheduled to depart New Orleans on 1 March 2006.
