What Bert Has To Say About New Orleans-Metairie Metro Area


Long a complex multi-cultural city crossing a wide range of socio-economic strata, the New Orleans has had its share of problems with crime, education, social infrastructure, and economic health. At the same time, the city exudes a unique cross-cultural charm making it a favorite tourist spot as well as a proud home to many enjoying its arts, unique entertainment profile, and its French-accented Southern grace.
