19 June, 2006. New Orleans, Louisiana. Housing problems. Keep Out! Saint Bernard Housing complex. The eerily deserted 1,300 unit housing project was flooded in the aftermath of hurricane Katrina. HANO, The Housing Authority of New Orleans has vowed to demolish the public housing, once riddled with crime and poverty. The housing authority proposes a mix of private and public housing created by private contractors. Former residents, fenced out with barbed wire argue that HANO is part of a greater city plot to keep poor, predominantly African Americans from returning home. The Complex is now fenced off and residents need to make an appointment at least 72 hours in advance to be permitted back to collect personal belongings.
