^^magnolia is basically split into 2 parts, one is in better condition than the other if i'm correct. in the worse half, most of the residents have been transferred to other projects downtown (lafitte, st. bernard, iberville, etc.) whether they like it or not. that shift from uptown to downtown has caused alot of rivalry-based violence recently. anyway, yeah most of the magnolia will eventually be demolished and rebuilt.

 

they already did it to the florida pj's and now it's a bunch of multistory, vinyl-siding units painted bright, gay pastel colors. it looks like fuckin disneyland, but in 6 months i'm pretty positive it'll look like the shithole slum it really is. it's funny how the city of new orleans sems to think a pretty mask will decrease the murders & drug trafficking that takes place in those projects.

The cemetary by I think the downtown lafitte projects is one of the iller ones. There's a bunch of hollowed out tombs where homeless people lay.

 

All the old, torn up houses and half-busted-out neon signs are beyond-ill photo targets.

You'll just have to dodge bullets and broken glass pipes.

i spend about 20+ hours a week aimlessly wandering and exploring the ghettos and projects of new orleans. being the murder capitol of the world and all, i'm beginning to wonder if i'm being too careless. i don't carry any kind of weapon, and walk freely through some of the worst neighborhoods in the country. i get a lot of stares, and the fact that i'm white, 5'6" and 98 lbs. doesn't help the situation. all of the conversations/encounters i've had with people are generally friendly, although they usually begin with "what you doin round here wo?!" i figure as long as i'm not dealing or fucking someone's girl i'm not a candidate for murder victim of the day. maybe i'm just testing my luck. do you guys think i'm wrong in this? what kind of unpleasant encounters have you had in bad areas?

 

so far on my journeys i've met:

-Midnight, the middle-aged crackhead prostitute

-small-scale dealers, a few of whom i now go to regularly

-sissy nobby, a local transvestite bounce rapper who sucks dick to support his/her wardrobe

-many homeless people who think i'm also homeless and tell me stuff like "it'll get better man."

-members of the 10th ward posse (whose leader just got 110 yrs. for murder/using juveniles in drug trafficking)

-7 year old crack babies that ask me for cigarettes

 

YAY!! New Orleans is FUN!!

 

try having everything you just said being white etc etc.. except ...living and working in that neightbordhood. having one of the most dangerous jobs in america and being in the recently awarded most dangerous city in america..

 

 

The shit you think is all funny and fun and games is a big reality for how people live.. while you go back to your nice cushy neighborhoods and sleep in your "dorm rooms".. im out in the middle of the night staying alive and staying one step ahead of that guy coming around the corner of the house nextdoor with a gun. its really not funny if you think about it..

^^methinks you are right.

 

and Telo, why so bitter? i never once tried to make a joke out of a life of poverty and blight, and i consider myself lucky not to have to worry about the dangers of that lifestyle constantly. i just enjoy going to those areas of my city. what difference does it make to you? not to mention the fact that i know new orleans alot better than you do, so trust me, i know where i'm going and i think i'll be ok. and *pat on the back* for being so "gutta."

 

:rolleyes:

Yo BOZACK...

I think you are testing your luck.. If you stick your neck out far enough its gonna get cut off. Then again if you're from NOLA you know what you're getting into. Most cats around those PJ's are panhandling, swingin/hustlin or high. Sorry if that comes off as a generalization, but so far in my 6 1/2 years here i've found that to be the case. Also its unfortunate but true that a '100 lb. white boy" is an easy assed target for somebody in the game. Honestly it's all on you, but don't be surprized if somethin happens.

By the way do you write when you're walking thru the projects or just scoping? Holla back.......
