Florida Projects is a neighborhood and a housing project of the city of New Orleans. A subdistrict of the Bywater District Area, its boundaries as defined by the City Planning Commission are: Florida Boulevard to the north, Mazant Street to the east, North Dorgenois Street to the south and Congress, Law and Gallier Streets to the west. Along with the Desire Projects, it was historically one of the most crime-ridden areas in Downtown New Orleans and one of the most dangerous housing developments in the country. It was located on Florida avenue across from the Desire Projects. It was heavily flooded in Hurricane Katrina and was subsequently razed.
