Mid-City New Orleans News Today
NOLA Messenger is an independently-owned, online, community news organization founded in September 2010 with UptownMessenger.com. MidCityMessenger.com is the Mid-City equivalent launched in January of 2013.
On this site, you’ll find neighborhood-level coverage of land use, politics, crime, business, and community events every day. We will tell the stories of Mid-City New Orleans through traditional, quality reporting and photojournalism.
We are financially supported by local advertisers and by generous contributions from our readers. Although we are not a traditional “newspaper,” we strictly adhere to the Society of Professional Journalists’ code of ethics.

This site primarily covers news for Gentilly, Gentilly Terrace, Ponchartrain Park, Gentilly Woods, and the Lakefront, though at times we report on surrounding areas including New Orleans East, City Park, and Lakeview.
