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?

I agree. When I lived there (one year) as a kid I always heard "the Crescent City". I still remember greeting people with "where y'at"?......lol

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.

How about a little leniency on A Streetcar Named Desire. It won't take "Streetcar Named Desire" without the "A."
