Earlier this year I was fortunate enough to be part of a team from Berklee College of Music that traveled to New Orleans to volunteer with Habitat for Humanity to help build a Musicians' Village.
I wanted to track the progress of the Musicians' village and the surrounding area so I took some screen shots of the area we were working in from Google Maps and from Zillow.
These sites update their satellite images infrequently so the last shots they have do not even show the houses that were already built when we were there. When they update their images, I'll zoom in and report back.
It will be interesting to track Zillow in particular as this site tracks home value information. I am not sure how much info they will gather on the Ninth Ward but I hope they track data from this area and I hope the value there grows!

The houses we worked on at the end of our week...
The large cleared area is fast filling up with homes. Note the house showing $0. Directly across the street in the image, there is only grass, but there are already dozens of homes there worth a lot more than $0!
Here is a view from the middle of the field, back in June.
