Notes:
These views were taken before Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. New Orleans is located in southeastern Louisiana, straddling the Mississippi River. It is a major United States port and the largest city and metropolitan area in the state of Louisiana (population of 1,189,981, the 46th largest in the USA). Though New Orleans possesses numerous structures of national architectural significance, it is equally, if not more, revered for its enormous, largely-intact (even post-Katrina) historic built environment. Many styles of housing exist in the city, including the shotgun house (originating from New Orleans) and the bungalow style. Creole townhouses, notable for their large courtyards and intricate iron balconies, line the streets of the French Quarter.
