General Information about New Orleans

New Orleans (pronounced /nulinz/, locally /nulnz/; French: La Nouvelle-Orlans [lanuvlle] (helpinfo)) is a major United States port city and the largest city in Louisiana.
New Orleans is located in southeastern Louisiana along both the east and westbanks of the Mississippi River. The city is bordered by Lake Pontchartrain. It is coextensive with Orleans Parish meaning that the boundaries of the city and the parish are the same. Although the city is nearly 70 miles upriver from the Mississippi River Delta, the shape of the Louisiana coastline is so that Orleans Parish borders on the waters of Lake Borgne to its east. The city is named after Philippe II, Duc d'Orlans, Regent of France, and is one of the oldest cities in the United States. New Orleans is known for its multicultural heritage as well as its music and cuisine and is considered the birthplace of jazz.[1][2]
