Videos By Character: Alfred Aubry

A lifelong New Orleanian charts a new path in the wake of catastrophe

Al Aubry is a homeowner in the Gentilly neighborhood whose roots in New Orleans go back centuries. He is determined to view his post-catastrophe situation as an opportunity for increased self-sufficiency. With Duany’s urging, he plants a community garden in his yard and begins to feed his family from it. Living in a cramped FEMA trailer with his wife Patricia and their two children for three years, Aubry wants nothing more than to rebuild a bigger and better home in the same spot where his ravaged one once stood. Despite having to fight crippling government bureaucracy, he never loses his sense of hope.
