That's mainly just one area -- near Michoud and Chef Menteur.

Village De L'Est (Vietnamese area) and Lake Carmel/Eastover (where the rich blacks live) are fine. The rest of the East is basically Detroit.

The South Shore’s counterpart to Eden Isles in Slidell.

I saw this video they made about New Orleans East on YouTube. For those who are interested, you can skip the intro and go to the 9:20 mark where they talk about being embarrassed being from the East because people viewed them as soft at the time. You can go to the 40:15 mark and see how white the school was back in the old days lol.
I watched it because my route for right now is in New Orleans East until the coronavirus crap ends. I just wanted to know which areas I need to watch out for lol.

Here is an article by Richard Campanella about the history of development in the East, and why it led to the issues it faces today. Fascinating stuff.

quote:

Neighborhoods, I've long held, are defined more by their cores than their peripheries. When you hear the words "Lower Garden District," for example, you probably think of its central focal point, Coliseum Square. Likewise, Jackson Square, Audubon Park, Harrison Avenue and Oretha Castle Haley Boulevard mark the psychological nuclei or axes of the French Quarter, Uptown, Lakeview and Central City, and impart to those neighborhoods iconography and character.

Eastern New Orleans, on the other hand, comes across as an undifferentiated expanse of subdivisions without a distinctive nucleus. As a result, Eastern New Orleans lacks a sense of place, and finds itself excluded from the popular perception of classic New Orleans.

Lake Forest Tennis Club in New Orleans East was one of the premier tennis clubs in the United States at the time. State of the art rubico tennis courts where professional played from all over the world. I think there were 24 tennis courts there along with a Olympic pool and really nice club house. Now all you see is a wall off I-10 with a lake in the background. I saw McEnroe and Conners practice there for a couple of weeks when I was a kid.

That is how I felt being in the area. It felt far away from the rest of the city and feels like New Orleans long distance cousin.

It’s sad, has a lot of potential being so close to the City. I guess you have to worry about flooding and other problems that I won’t mention.

re: How did New Orleans East get so bad?
The company I work for service Baton Rouge, New Orleans, and Lafayette. We have 20 drivers and because of the coronavirus they are making sure the temp drivers are not going over 8 hours a day. I have to do most of the temp’s route in Metairie and New Orleans East so he doesn’t go over the 40 hours a week. Once everybody is back to working I will go back to my route in north Baton Rouge all the way up to St. Francisville.
