Of course, homeowners and businesses are not the only property-owners struggling to rebuild over the past four years. Institutions and even government agencies have also been struggling to rebuild. This is Holy Cross School, as it appears in September of 2009. Holy Cross is a Catholic middle and high school originally located in the Lower Ninth Ward neighborhood known as Holy Cross. Its original campus was destroyed by flooding from the Industrial Canal in 2005, and its new campus is on the former site of St. Francis Cabrini Catholic Church, on Paris Avenue in Gentilly. \r\n\r\nAlthough the school is still under construction, the school is already open and operating from classrooms in temporary trailers, off picture to the right of the camera. \r\n\r\n\r\nThis image is part of a series titled Four Years After.
