I'd say the Crescent City is an equally popular nickname for New Orleans, based off its topographical location on the Mississippi River. Maybe cut this answer into two?

Neither one of those schools is prestigious. They are fine schools, but "prestigious"? No.

Loved this quiz and I love New Orleans (N' Awlins) although I've only visited twice. My sister and I always say "where y'at?" when we greet one another. Now if y'all will excuse me, I have a craving for jambalaya.

New Orleans born and raised; my first thought was "What on EARTH is a street median?" But then I remembered... it's what the rest of you people call neutral grounds...

The shrimp poboy is my least favorite type. I prefer the pork. Have to kick myself for missing NOLA; 50 years removed from Louisiana, but at least I should have remembered from a restaurant in Los Angeles named NOLA.

Oh GEEZ. For "most common nickname", I was trying to think of what New Orleanians might call each other instead of "bro". Hmm, "Bubba"? Maybe "Sonny"? "Chum"? Yeah... I was WAY on the wrong track.

Is that what everyone else calls Neutral Ground? I thought that term was universal...
