Specific
property
affected:
Wheatley School,7th ward
Comments: Demolishing this school would be a tragic mistake. Wandering through new orleans, this was one of the few structures that made me do a double take and catch my breath, and say,"Wow. what is that? it is amazing!" not only is it beautiful, it offers a striking example or how to deal with challenges of flooding facing the city, but it works just as well, and probably even better when there is not flooding. It is amazing that it works just as well today as it did 50 years ago when it was designed. It is just too good.
