The Lost Year

Dan Baum has an excellent article about the reconstruction of New Orleans in a recent issue of the New Yorker. Two points of the article are interesting from an urban communnication perspective; first the architectural, cultural, and density factors that lead to the creation of an especially meaningful, tight knit community in the Lower Nine and second how "facts" like flood depth change meaning as the context shifts among scientists, developers, federal administrators, and residents of different communities.
