New Orleans: Recovery, Restoration and Rebirth -- Living and working in Post-Katrina New Orleans has been a challenging and exciting time. If we were to sum up our experience into one word, it would be opportunity. We stand at the epicenter of change. New Orleans is the first major city in the 21st century to be reborn and redesigned. Redevelopment plans call for combining our rich cultural heritage and with modern ideas to rebuild a great American city.

It is remarkable to be part of this effort. Just days after the storm, we opened the first media center at ground zero to respond to an estimated 2,000 journalists. In the months and years to follow, Deveney has continued to work diligently telling our city’s powerful story of recovery and rebirth.

We invite others to join us by taking part in the rebuilding of one of America’s greatest treasures.

Visit us. Bring your family. New Orleans can’t wait to welcome you!
