New Orleans Map

At the bottom of this page please check out the New Orleans map collection I have uploaded for you.

New Orleans is the largest city and metro area in the American state of Louisiana. The city itself is not gigantic, with a mere population of 343,829. The metro area is sizeable, with around 1.2 million people. This somewhat small size doesn`t do justice to the prominence and importance of New Orleans in the American psyche and culture. New Orleans is not only an important port city, it is also a cultural center known for its unique regional cuisine as well as being the birthplace of jazz music. It also holds annual festivities such as Mardi Gras, which draws crowds from around the country and around the world.

The climate of New Orleans is a humid subtropical climate, with short and mild winters, and long summers that get very hot and humid. Hurricanes affect the city greatly, especially because of its low elevation which makes it particularly vulnerable to flooding. We saw this, of course, during the disaster of Hurricane Katrina in 2005.
