In the spring of 2007, Mrs. Komiskey's students went again to New Orleans, but this time with a different focus - New Orleans neighborhoods. They researched the neighborhoods prior to Katrina using books and such websites as Pre-Katrina New Orleans , to create brochures about the neighborhoods before, and after Katrina, as well as what might be expected for these neighborhoods in the future. They were aided in the project Dr. Mary Beth Almerico and Mr. Stephen Barnes, DOT Intern.
