19 May 2015. New Orleans, Louisiana.
A sign in the front yard in the Pigeon Town neighborhood surrounding the derelict Alfred C Priestley Junior High School.
The old school in Pigeon Town has fallen into serious disrepair since 1980 when the last students and teachers left the building. The school was then used as office space and later as a warehouse until 1993. Hurricane Katrina only accelerated the decline. French charter school Lycée Francais recently purchased the crumbling wreck for $425,000 and have grand plans to return a middle and high school to the neighborhood.
