Venice shoud be preserved because it has architectural masterpieces unmatched in all the World. But the tract housing in the New Orleans basin was dime-a-dozen shacks, such as can be found in every city in the United States. There is simply no reason that what was being done there could not be done more safely and much cheaper almost anywhere else.
There is simply no reason to put it back.
And it also doesn't face hurricanes.
the problem with views of the ninth ward and its views on housing is sort of a fallcay. In fact people for some reason think that the 9th ward was some vast housing project. In fact it was not. In fact the architecture in some areas is quite similar to the houses in the Irish channel where I lived. It looks small but in fact I found living in these homes pleasant. Again the ARCHITECTURAL STYLE and refering to it as similar to most cities I think is inaccurate
