In 2004, the Neighborhood Story Project was founded by Rachel Breunlin and Abram Himelstein as a book-making project based in the neighborhoods where New Orleanians live and work. NSP works with writers in neighborhoods around New Orleans to create books about their communities.

From Hips Shaking out now!
That groove keeps me shaking my hips while tryin write my masters thesis . Oh im so gonna party hard when i’m done!
I don’t hide bitch, I’m high when I’m in public
Even in my everyday ride I be stuntin’
This is nothing really, you should see me Sunday
I’m from New Orleans love, you know how I’m coming
Today’s hang in the hood. I stole Sigmund’s hat. Nasty weather but we found an absolute calm heaven away from all the Parisian craziness - Café A.
