[Post Katrina] Andrew J. Bell Junior High

This is what I've been able to piece together about this gorgeous building. It was originally the Saint Joseph Academy of New Orleans. Pre-Katrina, it was being used as Andrew J. Bell Junior High School. It's hard to imagine that this whole building was fully functional even before the storm, because the decay this place has undergone is staggering in places. Whole staircases have fallen, and I stepped through the floors in parts. Getting to the attic was....well, fun to say the least. Enjoy.

Wow. Amazing pictures. That is some serious decay, I wonder what it looked like before Katrina.

We were here...and it was glorious.

For sure! I was riding my bike through the neighborhood and came across it. I knew what I had to do

Exactly, some of the building looked like it had been decaying for 15 + years.

SO JEALOUS! I planned to hit that place, but never got around to it. I even Google Earth street viewed it to look for obvious POEs

Adventure is out there.

Glad I got in when I did. Place is pretty destroyed. I came across two squatters also. They had tents set up =P

I went by this place the other day and took some shots of the outside but there was this dead/decaying dog in a plastic bag that almost made me throw up and there was metal over all the entrances that I think they just recently added (not to mention a bunch of dudes talking about how much coke they had left to sell) so I left after a few shots and went to JFK instead.

hahahaha! Yeah, not the best part of town. Just went back this morning to take this shot of the facade. They really have sealed up most abandonments all over the city ever since the deaths of those squatters. Like you said, there were metal sheets covering every window and door around the entire first story.
