To BELIEVE is to accept as true; to feel sure of the truth or to hold as an opinion. We, at East New Orleans Business Development District, believe that New Orleans is one of the finest cities in the country. We believe in its rich culture, history, and great food. We believe in Po Boys, Beignets, Daiquiris, and Hurricanes from Pat O’Brien’s. We believe in Mardi Gras, the best free party in the country. We believe in camping out and setting up tents and ladders waiting days for parades to start. We believe in Zulu coconuts and all prized throws from our carnival krewes. We believe in King cake and all its sugary glory. We believe in all of the festivals that locals and visitors from afar travel here to enjoy. We believe in second lines with all the history of the Mardi Gras Indians and brass bands. We believe in the Crescent City Classic and the lively party afterwards. We believe in our sport teams. They are like family to us. We are there through the good years and the bad. Who Dat! And we believe in our City leadership.
We believe that our local leaders are working in our best interest to make all neighborhoods in our city great. Fixing our streets, updating flood control systems, implementing policies that reduce crime equitably in every neighborhood, and they’re committed to creating a better quality of life for all of our citizens, regardless of what area of the city we live.
And finally, we believe in New Orleans East. We remember what New Orleans East used to be and we continue to do our part to not only recapture its glory, but to make it the superior community it deserves to be."
