New Orleans
Neighborhood Portraits


"Lakeview is a moderately wealthy neighborhood of frame cottages and brink ranch houses, the value of which have continued to increase since the 1960s. Seven schools and twelve churches of various denominations serve Lakeview. Street names, such as Robert E. Lee, General Diaz, Marshal Foch and General Haig, reflect local and national history." (from The New Orleans Data Center)
