There is now another reason to see the museum-quality Levee Exhibit Hall at 5000 Warrington Drive in the Gentilly neighborhood of New Orleans.
There is a roof on the 100 foot long Exhibit Hall to keep you cool in the sun and dry in the rain.
The text and forty photos and graphs tell the story and bust the myths still encircling the 2005 flooding during Katrina.
The six panels are about ALL the levee breaches, ALL the neighborhoods, ALL the lives.
The Levee Exhibit Hall and Rain Garden are located at the east breach site of the London Avenue Canal. Photos in the exhibit show how flood water lifted the home that once stood there, foundation and all, and relocated it in the street.
Levees.org is leasing the lot from the New Orleans Redevelopment Authority (NORA) in an annual renewable lease for $250.00 a year. After two years, there is an option to purchase.
