Iʼm still standing

One of the interesting things about the built environment in New Orleans is the way some buildings manage to survive.
Houses in New Orleans have to deal with termites, mold, rising damp, horrendous rainstorms, aggressive vegetation, and more.
Looking at buildings like these makes me wonder how many dozens of hurricanes theyʼve been through, but are still standing after a hundred or more years.
Meanwhile, the house I rented in Las Vegas needed major repairs just 20 years after it was built.
