I always say the Bywater.

Also, you may want to read "A Confederacy of Dunces" or flip through it. Most have proclaimed it for years as the only book that has ever gotten the New Orleans accent correct.

However, keep in mind that New Orleans is a diverse city with many different types of accents based on race, socio-economic status, area of city, etc. It really depends on who is speaking.
