New Orleans is located in the Southern United States and was founded in 1718. The city is named after Philippe d’ Orléans, Duke of Orléans, Regent of France, and is well known for its distinct French Creole architecture, as well as its cross cultural and multilingual heritage. New Orleans was catastrophically impacted by what the University of California Berkeley’s Dr. Raymond B. Seed called “the worst engineering disaster in the world since Chernobyl” when the Federal levee system failed catastrophically during Hurricane Katrina in 2005. The city has recovered somewhat from that disaster. New Orleans is still the largest city and metropolitan area in the state of Louisiana with an estimated population of 343,000 (in its urban area) and more than 1.3 million (in its metropolitan area).
