Atlantan since you always brag that your city is the Rome, Paris and NYC all rolled up into one. What ideas would you use to rebuild your old grandpa-New Orleans. Think like a Atlantan and a Southener and not like a New Orleanians

In Texas we have Austin as our New Orleans

New Orleans has always seemed very European to me. If they are going to take any suggestions from anyone it should be the canal cities in Europe.

It isn't. I'd say Houston is more like New Orleans than Austin.

Agreed. With regards to climate, culture, demographics, topography, etc. Houston has more elements of New Orleans than Austin. I lived in New Orleans and recall how much parts of Uptown reminded me of parts of the Heights neighborhood in Houston. The only similarity I can think of between Austin and New Orleans is that they are both "music" cities with walkable areas catering to tourists. That's where the similarities end.
