There is a sure sign of progress at 5000 Warrington Drive, the site of one of the worst levee breaches in New Orleans during Hurricane Katrina.
A large “coming soon” now stands at the east-side breach of the London Avenue Canal in Gentilly announcing that an Open-air Levee Exhibition and Garden will soon be built.
Working with the the Gentilly Civic Improvementy Association and other neighborhood communities, the grassroots group Levees.org will build a series of exhibits that tell the full vetted story of why the levees broke nine years ago.
