New Orleans, LA Overview

New Orleans is located at 29°57′53″N 90°4′14″W on the banks of the Mississippi River, approximately 105 miles (169 km) upriver from the Gulf of Mexico. According to the US Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 350.2 square miles (907 km), of which 180.56 square miles (467.6 km), or 51.55%, is land.

The city is located in the Mississippi River Delta on the east and west banks of the Mississippi River and south of Lake Pontchartrain. The area along the river is characterized by ridges and hollows.

New Orleans was originally settled on the natural levees or high ground, along the Mississippi River. After the Flood Control Act of 1965, the US Army Corps of Engineers built floodwalls and man-made levees around a much larger geographic footprint that included previous marshland and swamp. Whether or not this human interference has caused subsidence is a topic of debate. A study by an associate professor at Tulane University claims.

New Orleans is a major United States port and the largest city and metropolitan area in the state of Louisiana. The population of the city was 343,829 as of the 2010 U.S. Census.The New Orleans metropolitan area had a population of 1,167,764 in 2010 and was the 46th largest in the United States.The New Orleans–Metairie–Bogalusa Combined Statistical Area, a larger trading area, had a 2010 population of 1,452,502.
