This is an important commercial district on Robert E. Lee near West End Blvd. It was one of the busiest areas in Lakeview before the storm. \r\n\r\nHowever, this commercial district is very close to 17th Street Canal and Lake Pontchartrain, and it was completely destroyed by flooding. It remained largely abandoned until just over a year ago, when the Walgreens re-opened. Over the next few months, the Subway, the Robert\'s Supermarket, and other business returned here. Today, the parking lot is filled with cars, and it looks very similar to what it looked like before the storm.
