Few people outside of Louisiana had heard of the Lower Ninth Ward before Hurricane Katrina, when it was thrust into the media spotlight as one of the most devastated areas. Recovery has been slow but steady here in the largest of New Orleans' 17 wards. Originally the swampy area of a plantation, residential development began in this easternmost city corner in the early 19th Century. Poor African-Americans were some of the first residents, and still define the neighborhood today. The most famous resident is probably Fats Domino, who still lives in the area. You can take a city bus tour of the area, which passes houses built by Brad Pitt's Make it Right Foundation.
