In New Orleans, Louisiana, “downtown” has historically referred to neighborhoods along the Mississippi River down-river (roughly east) from Canal Street, including the French Quarter, Treme, Faubourg Marigny, Bywater, the 9th Ward, and other neighborhoods. Contrary to the common usage of “downtown” in other cities, this historic application of the term excluded the New Orleans Central Business District. The term continues this historic usage, although many younger people and people who came to New Orleans from elsewhere use definitions based on usage in other cities.

A portion of the Morial Convention Center Complex from Convention Center Boulevard. A legal definition of “downtown” New Orleans originated in 1974, when the Louisiana Legislature created the New Orleans Downtown Development District, a business improvement district (BID) bordered by Iberville Street, the Pontchartrain Expressway, Claiborne Avenue and the Mississippi River. This district is anchored by the CBD, but excludes the French Quarter. The DDD also incorporates the Warehouse District, as well as landmarks like the Louisiana Superdome, the New Orleans Arena, the New Orleans Morial Convention Center, Jackson Square, the Riverwalk Marketplace,and the Crescent City Connection, One Canal Place.
