Every workday, thousands commute to the New Orleans Regional Business Park in the eastern part of the city off Old Gentilly Road, ready to assemble space shuttles and roast coffee beans.
"This is truly an industrial gem," says Lavon Burbank, chairman of the NORBP executive board, of the park. "When you're talking its about proximity to railroad lines and to ports, you know, there's a reason why these businesses chose to locate here. Whether or not they were guided by the state or the city, they looked at the location on a map and said, 'This is just the place to be.'"
