A neighborhood within the city of New Orleans, Lakeview is one of the first residential areas that took a surrounding natural feature – in this case, Lake Pontchartrain – and developed a community around it. Its early settlers were sailors and people in the coastal trade.
The area, once swampland, boomed as a residential neighborhood after the Second World War, when developers began erecting bungalows.
After Lakeview took the brunt of Hurricane Katrina in 2005, the neighborhood has cobbled itself back together as a great mix of commercial space and residential homes continues to be built.
Living in Lakeview
The residents of Lakeview appreciate the heritage of their neighborhood, where homes are surrounded by trees and parks – City Park is one of the oldest urban parks in the U.S. – and provide outdoor leisure activities for everyone.
A laidback Louisiana attitude permeates the community, making visitors feel right at home.
Take a walk down its quiet streets, and give a neighborly wave to those like you who have chosen to make Lakeview their home. On weekends, you’ll see residents sunning themselves on blankets around the lake area or holding family barbecues.
