All we do is build nice things for rich people

The Perez development in Holy Cross gets covered in The Guardian.

This is not always the case but sometimes the 10,000 foot view really does capture the essence of a story better than the local news does.
Residents say while potholes and street lamps in the Lower Ninth Ward and other low-income neighborhoods go unfixed, and while people who were here before Katrina struggle to maintain their damaged homes with little city help, the city has refocused its energy on attracting rich outsiders and corporations. It isnow one of the fastest-growing cities in the US.
