Dear French Quarter bashing locals

The electricity was not restored in the Quarter before the rest of the city-it never went off, which happened during Katrina as well.By the way, do take a moment to appreciate a well-built neighborhood with underground utilities and ask yourself why rest of the city doesn’t follow this lead?
The Quarter is NOT made up entirely of tourists with glow sticks, but many, many locals working and living in the old city as locals have since 1718. Everyone who appreciates diversity and joy and community across the city and world comes to the French Quarter to find it here as well. Stop bashing other neighborhoods and appreciate what we have-everywhere.
