I love when people get in on the tail end of the thread and post without reading anything in between so as to realize all the reasons why this plan could never work in any way, shape, or form.

The brick facades gave a glimpse of the home life that had been there. These were around Metairie, Bucktown, and another district whose name I can't think of.
Interesting in that this thread is dated 6 years ago.

It seems as if those towns that were 'gone' all seem to be back again.

Geographically, New Orleans has a bit more in common with Amsterdam. Both cities are below sea level in some places, sea walls are required to keep the sea out, both are built in marsh-like places. I think it would be better to see what Amsterdam has done.

When I mentioned New Orleans having more in common with Amsterdam than with Venice, this video will show you what I mean.

I watch this and I feel it would be a great thing for New Orleans.

I think it would be smarter to turn Venice into New Orleans.

Pretty much every neutral ground in New Orleans has a canal under it, or that´s what we learned in school in Louisiana History.

Precisely. So just wait 50 years plus or minus- you'll have your Venice.
