Re: “Is New Orleans worth it?

This article hits the nail on the head for me. I just graduated with my PhD in a research-heavy, biomedical field and, not only could I not get a job in New Orleans, there were none to apply to! If you aren't an engineer or bartender, forget about it.

I fell in love with the city and originally wanted to stay but dismal potential for professional growth, a lack of accountability (see: "climate change caused the recent MidCity flooding"), complete inefficiency on many levels, and ripping my car to shreds every time I drive to the grocery store made me bitter and, eventually, I was happy to leave.

I am on the fence about having children but will say, if I chose to do so, there is no way I would stay in or return to New Orleans. Public education is horrendous (from an educational standpoint) and why would I pay near college tuition for my 1st grader?

Cheers from New York. Get your shit together, New Orleans. You are beautiful and unique ... just unlivable.
