Pink houses glow in the night in the flood-ravaged neighborhood of the Lower 9th Ward. Actor Brad Pitt spoke earlier Sunday December 2, 2007 about his plans with the $12 million Make It Right Project to build 150 homes ecologically sustainable homes in the Lower 9th Ward. This weekend, big pink houses were installed in the neighborhood that was ravaged by flooding in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina in 2005. The pink houses act as symbolic stand-ins for many homes lost. Photo taken near the corner of North Roman and Deslonde in the Lower 9th Ward, New Orleans.
