New Orleans also has a "modern" business section. It's called the Central Business District or, as the natives say, The CBD. It's on the uptown side of Canal Street (i.e. the west side). New Orleansers don't refer to north, east, south or west but rather riverside, lakeside (referring to Lake Ponchitrain north of the city and forming its northern border), uptown and downtown. Got that?
