Where'd these neighborhood names come from?
New Orleans East has relatively new neighborhoods, which also means that there's been less time for names and boundaries to establish themselves.
Add to that a more rural density of housing, and you've got neighborhoods named after lakes, streets, and subdivisions that even residents may not have heard of.
What is presented here is the NO City Planning neighborhood designations. It's a starting place for discussion, and a geography that aligns with Census tract boundaries so data can organized into these neighborhood groupings.
New Orleans East also includes Planning Districts 10 and 1 1.
