|This building is the World Trade Center...
formerly the ITM Building (Int'l Trade Mart).*
It's at the river end of Canal St. You can see several windows (including the whole ring at the top where the roof is missing as well) are boarded over still.
*Thanks to Jason for reminding me. I had forgotten the name of the place.
|Here's a view of the lower half of it
where more boards are.
I see one in the next building over as well.
Now I'm going to look at the lower half of the chick in the orange shirt.
|It's hard to tell if boarded-over buildings
in this area were due to storm damage, looting, and/or construction.
For example, the Joy Theater (where I saw Buck Rogers when I was a little kid) just down the street from here looked like it had been boarded up for years.
|The palms along here were all askew right after the storm. Like a lot of other trees around the city, these yellow ties had to be added to keep them up for the forseeable future.|
|Another partially boarded-up building.
Note that the mayor's race was going while we were here, so there were signs for the multitude of candidates all over the city.
|Here's a close-up of another of the palms.
This girl was convinced we were trying to take a picture of her.
