the Historic Districts and Landmarks Commission of New Orleans,


survey of 19th century historic architecture, completed December, 1979.
Areas surveyed are those colored in yellow and represent areas that have potential to be listed on the National Register of Places, as National Register historic Architectural Districts. Those areas shaded in grey were also a part of the survey, as part of the windshield survey, and were determined to be not old enough to include in the survey of 19th century neighborhoods, although could be surveyed in years to come, as these neighborhoods become older, and may well represent historically early 20th century architecture, types and styles adapting and evolving from the earlier late 19th century architecture.
