This thesis will look into one of the largest geographic areas of economic development potential in New Orleans; the area known as New Orleans East. A look at its past will be explored as a gateway to the problems it has been faced with and why such large areas still remain unused. With the passing of Hurricane Katrina, New Orleans East suffered tremendous damages. A careful, yet creative look at revitalization in this area could produce economic wealth for the City. Various economic development strategies will be analyzed as a catalyst for generating economic growth for New Orleans East and a new path for the City of New Orleans, one that far surpasses the economic adversities and political corruption that is embedded in its history.
