Holy Cross. New to New Orleans!

Hey everyone. So I'm from denver but am in New Orleans till the end of march. I got down here and started seeing all the abandonments and I suddenly remembered the wonderful world of UE!I got into it about a year ago and never posted anything but now I want that all to change!So hello to everybody and I can't wait to get involved in the community.

I've been down here about two weeks and me and one of my friends heard about an old school that seemed like something we might want to check out. It was a boys catholic school that was abandoned after katrina. What was so amazing about it was the fact that the place had a feeling of being left almost literally over night (notebooks still in lockers, graded papers still on teachers desks, at one point we even found a pet cage that had the skeleton of a lizard still in it.) There were probably four or so buildings, two of which we explored. The first was some sort of maintenance building with walls of tools and paint cans, I think about 3 rooms. Behind it a few buses had been parked although we didnt check them out. As we were headed over to the next building we ran into another kid who kinda spooked us. He said that he was a student there before the hurricane and that he sometimes came back to look a what was left of his school. He also said that no one in the neighborhood really cared if we wandered around but that there was one security guard who was usually posted at the other end of the campus.

The next building was two floors, offices, academic rooms, the cafeteria and the library. The counseling offices had the records of the students dating years back and showed all their transcripts and files talking about learning disabilities. Very interesting. Upstairs we found the library which had hundreds of books scattered about in various piles and boxes. Some rooms of interest were the dissection lab where jars of preserved animals were left on tables and shelves and some sort of chemistry lab where there were beakers and chemicals strewn about. One room contained cages that had once housed animals, some whom sadly never escaped. There was also a pile of slides with pictures of some of the students with a giant snake wrapped around their necks and some others of football games. The place was huge, we probably went into 20 or so rooms, and it was a lot to take in so we decided to call it a day. I definitely want to go back to check out some of the other buildings which look like they might be some sort of housing. Also we didn't find the gym...

I'm sure someone has posted about this place in the database and I can't see it but let me know what you think. Also if anyone has any idea what the other buildings are that would be awesome!

Welcome to the region. Nice location. I don't think that one is in the db but I'm not 100% sure. There are a couple of explorers in NO though you might be able to hook up with sometime.
