The Housing Authority of New Orleans received a Federal grant last year to redevelop the Iberville Housing Development, the city’s last traditional public housing complex, on the edge of the French Quarter. The plan was to keep about a third of the buildings, demolish the rest, and build new, mixed-income housing.

While much of the United States considers November 1 as just the day after Halloween, New Orleans marks a more spiritual holiday. Many in the city spend All Saints Day sprucing up cemeteries.
