Growing up in Marrero I had no complaints. Having said that, Marrero has gone down hill since then. I attended a public high school for my senior year because I had a 4.0 and most of my credits from the college prep high school I attended the years before. The work release program worked perfectly for me in many ways. I could go to school in the morning, take two classes and work in the afternoon. I also happened to miss when the school went into lockdown because someone brought a gun and all of the lunch fights. The crime has become increasingly worse in recent years, including a shooting of a police officer last week! There must be a way to help decrease the crime. The number of people killed in Marrero, Harvey, New Orleans, and many other neighboring cities is increasing daily. I believe that positive change is possible and that there are still good people here. We just need to look out for one another and be willing to help when needed.

Marrero is a suburb of New Orleans. There are several places to shop and eat. I like being close to the metropolis of New Orleans. New Orleans is a wonderful city that is venue for world-class entertainment. Every year there is the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival. This festival is the best way to sample the best of New Orleans cuisine and music. People from around the world travel here to participate in our culture. Being close to a metropolis, there are extraordinary colleges and universities to attend. Marrero takes pride in having well-planned neighborhoods. Most neighborhoods are shrouded with trees and sidewalks. There is a school in each neighborhood. Some children can walk to school, if they choose.
Marrero has been a great and upcoming place to live. The population is growing, streets are being renewed and property becoming renovated. Great community for children.
