What is your name?
My name is Natori Green.
How long have you been in Broadmoor?
I am a longtime Broadmoor resident. Since childhood, Broadmoor has been my roots. I have seen this neighborhood grow and change in ways for the better. It is a wonderful place to live and grow up in.
What activities do you like in Broadmoor outside of work?
Spending time with family and neighbors and participating in community outreach efforts is what I like to do outside of work, I am excited to attend virtually the city's Civic Leadership Academy this month. Since COVID19, I have Participated in four group art exhibitions in galleries on Julie St and the St Claude Art District. From September 12 - October 4th, "Sisters Solidarity" is a group art exhibition I am apart at 2372 St Claude Ave in New Orleans. The walkability of this neighborhood is great, knowing that within walking distance there are establishments I can visit is very convenient. Walking the Arts & Wellness Trail, picking up books at Rosa Keller Library, and visiting the local eateries is what I like to do outside of work also.
What interested you in working for the Broadmoor Improvement Association?
The Broadmoor neighborhood is diverse and focuses on arts & wellness. I am an exhibiting artist at Second Story Gallery and a single mom. Witnessing how the BIA puts together community programs, feed residents at the Food Pantry, work with community partners and residents alike to ensure that this neighborhood focuses on resident safety in a proactive, not a reactive way is awesome. This speaks to the organization's involvement in the neighborhood which is deeper than just talking about issues there is a lot of action toward solutions for residents. The friendliness and passion for the community observed by the BIA staff is what drew me to this position.
