What used to be an industrial rail corridor with rows of vacant warehouses is now a greenspace and paved trail in Orleans Parish. The Lafitte Greenway goes through six neighborhoods, connecting Bayou St. John in Mid-City to Armstrong Park by the French Quarter.

The 2.6-mile bicycle and pedestrian walkway makes getting around both parts of the city easier. There also is a park with street lights, new trees, and walkways that recycle water.

The Lafitte Greenway also connects more than just two parts of the city; it connects the people in those specific neighborhoods.
