Who Is NOLADEEJ?
Born and raised in New Orleans, I always had an affinity for history. In 2016, I started a YouTube channel to showcase New Orleans attractions, food, history, etc. I ended up meeting some amazing friends who shared a passion for abandoned places and we began exploring the forgotten places New Orleans had to offer. We eventually branched out to other parts of Louisiana and then other states as well. What fascinates me the most about these deserted places is the history behind them. Why are they in the condition they’re in? What happened to make the place close down or made the people just leave everything behind? By exploring these spots and documenting them before they’re gone, it allows us to hopefully find the answers to these questions.
