As far as the whole Covington, New Orleans East debate.

1. Covington has 1 zip code that covers an area much larger than the City of Covington itself. New Orleans East consist of 4 small zip codes and one large zip code that covers mostly wetland. Numbers already skewed, plus the obvious demographic difference that's going to affect per capita income.

2. Most of New Orleans East empted out after 2005. The money that was there made it's way to Atlanta, Houston, Dallas, Los Angeles, and New York for the most part and laid roots. One would be misinformed to think that there wasn't and still isn't big money in The East, it just so happens that The East is more diverse on the socio-economic scale.

3. Compare the cost of 5 bedrooms on the Northshore to 5 bedrooms on the Southshore. Factor in insurance and and the general cost of living. I wouldn't be surprised if 2-3 bedrooms on this side = 5 bedrooms on that side.

Another thing that caught my attention, although sad, but. Most native New Orleanians are not going to consider someone from the Northshore as being from New Orleans. They're in some ways, but very different culturally. In reality the Northshore plays a very important role to and is very much a part of the Greater New Orleans Metro. It's actually funny because "Metry" natives seem to hate Northshore people just as much. I've heard so many "blow up the Causeway" jokes that I don't even find them funny anymore. Still, it's a very different world across that lake. I'll admit that I find the Northshore more appealing since the influx of people from "Da Parish" migrated that way.
Should I keep going? I really don't feel like it, but I can.
Thanks for the input...these are some of the same points that I have been "arguing".

I do not judge anybody as this is an informative forum, but what truly gets under my skin is when it seems like assumptions are made about the city or parts of it from people who have never really been to those parts or have not spent a good while in NOLA.

BTW, I read the other subsequent posts that you made and I think that you hit the nailon the head. As I was trying to explain to Neworleansisprettygood, trying to use stats from 2009 to substantiate claims about PRE Katrina is just plain wrong...

I also have to concur with WestbankNOLA about the flight of AA income from N.O. East. As I have stated I am from Uptown but own in the East. Still do. But when Ms. Katrina decided to **** on my doorstep, I as many others left. Now I make my home between New York and ATL.(What a coincidence...they actually pay you in these places). No, seriously most peoples I know that left and are young professionals as myself stayed where they went...i.e. Houston, ATL, NY, Dallas, Cali...you get the point.

Ok. So there is one wealthy zip code in the East.

My original point, the one that caused all this mess, was that the East wasn't much of a location before the storm. The fact that the park was already failing backs that up.

Two people arguing back and forth destroy a thread. Enough or it will be closed.

Furthermore, the median household income for all of St. Tammany is $58,000.

I'll go ahead and say what nobody wants to admit, though. There isn't much "real money" anywhere in the New Orleans area. St. Tammany's median income is still below that of several states.

Compared to places like River Oaks, Manhattan, and Buckhead? Hell no.

...and the median income of New York City is roughly $50,000. No real wealth there either?

I think that it's whatever zip code Lakeview is in. Should be around $70,000. Not even where the wealthiest residents live though.

Guessing that would be Uptown. I wonder how Baton Rouge stacks up against New Orleans.
