About This Neighborhood

New Orleans Ninth Ward is the largest of the city’s 17 wards and definitely the most infamous. Within the Ninth Ward there is the Upper Ninth – notable for the Habitat for Humanity Musician’s Village, started after Hurricane Katrina by Branford Marsalis and Harry Connick, Jr.  The Musicians’ Village consists of 81 Habitat-constructed homes dedicated to house New Orleans musicians. Its’ centerpiece is the EllisMarsalisCenter for Music. In addition to the homes in the tract, plans call for building at least 150 other homes in the surrounding neighborhood.On the other side of the Industrial Canal is New Orleans East, which includes the Lower Ninth Ward.  Originally named “Lake Forest” as development first centered along the easternmost segment of Lake Forest Boulevard, the Read Blvd East area began growing in the 1970s and continues to develop. It includes the more upper-middle-class and affluent subdivisions of New Orleans East, such as Lake Forest Estates, Eastover, McKendall Estates, Lake Carmel, Fairway Estates, Lake Bullard, Lake Barrington, and McKendall Place. Eastover is a gated community containing palatial homes and a Joe Lee-designed golf course. By the late 1990s, the neighborhoods of Read Blvd East were no longer majority European-American, but were particularly favored as the preferred place of residence for New Orleans’ white-collar professionals and entrepreneurs.As the name implies, The Lower Ninth Ward is part of the Ninth Ward of New Orleans. The Lower Ninth Ward is often thought of as the entire area within New Orleans downriver of the Industrial Canal; however, the City Planning Commission divides this area into the Lower Ninth Ward and Holy Cross neighborhoods.  The term “Lower” refers to its location farther towards the mouth of the Mississippi River, “down” or “below” the rest of the city in local geographic terminology.  The neighborhood is rich with small businesses, barber and beauty shops, corner stores, eateries, gasoline stations, day care centers, as well as public schools and many churches.  In 1834-35, the U.S. government constructed the Jackson Barracks, which today is on the National Register of Historic Places. The barracks now serves as headquarters for the Louisiana National Guard and houses the JacksonBarracksMilitaryMuseum. The Barracks are in the Holy Cross neighborhood.
