17. Actually
The French Quarter received very little damage because of the Hurricane. The lower ninth ward isn't far at all from the quarter and it got wiped out. Most of the businesses in the quarter are up and running albeit with a reduced amount of tourism. That's what it needs more then anything, tourists. And the cruise lines are increasing their business to the city, so things are looking up just a little.
