A city with a large percentage of lazy people, a culture of terrible public education, and BY FAR the worst streets in America...but at least the affluent neighborhoods have the same shitty streets as the poor! A city with an out-of-control crime rate and murders that occur all over the ciy (Central City, Uptown, Mid City, NO East, and all over the WestbanK) with many carjackings and drug-related/retaliation shootings. A city that was stupid enough to keep Ray Nagin in power...

AND...

The city with maybe the best food in the country, not just the upscale stuff but also the great corner-store food (see po-boys and red beans and rice). A city with a rich tradition of jazz music and festivals. A city that worships the Saints, which helps distract people from all of the problems in the city. A city with an extremely unique personality due to the architecture, food, and music that you won't find anywhere else.
New Orleans could be the greatest city in the country if the people would do more to confront the crime and education problems.

The largest port in the United States and 3rd largest in the world. Home to myself and some 480,000 others. 28% of which are white, 67% are black, and the rest is everything else. Home to some of the the very first housing projects in the U.S.

Highest murder rate in the country almost every other year. The murder rate was as high as 88 per 100,000 pepole in 1994, but is usually closer to 40 (the nation's average is 6-7 per 100,000)
New Orleans Laaaaaaaaaaaaady!!! something something and Esplanade!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Beautiful, historic, and partying. It does stink in some places and it is dirty, but aren't all major cities that way? Thats the price we pay for all night booze. Best rave scene in the late 90's. Can't beat the atmosphere. There are a lot of dangerous ghettos. You can tell- just avoid them.
bourbon street, canal street, st. charles

The city where tourists are stupid enough to go into Magnolia and wonder why the city was named murder capital.
N.O. is well on its way to being murder capital.
