chase1000,
Not sure I agree with the urban core idea, the density is from tourists in the core which I, just me, think is the French Quarter. Suburban is another term that, if we skip the dictionary definition, is subjective, St Charles travels though lots of residential areas, as does Canal street.

I also think that a lot of this discussion is based on the interpretation of the term "urban country". It is an oxymoron, yet it does have a basis to some. I remember 20 or so years ago in Los Angeles there were a number of clubs where country western was the in thing, western style dress was in vogue, line dancing and Stetsons. Urban Country?

I meant the density of the structures and the streets. It's a pretty dense city and I moved here from brooklyn. Yes uptown is residential but it's still densely built. The only area that I noticed that would not be dense and urban is new orleans east, but I think it was suppossed to be suburban.

chase1000,
Sorry, I was thinking people. It is a very compact city, small lots, with many buildings right up to the sidewalk.

I think that's one of the amazing things about this place - definately unexpected and different from most of the southern cities i've been too. Now only if the population could come come back. There really is alot of unrealized potential - especially between uptown and downtown. Why is there nothing inbetween them on the river connecting them. Then there was the cool arch I discovered in the middle of nowhere next to an abandoned lot. sorry i'm rambling
