504    Includes bibliographical references (pages 359-363) and 
520 8  Exploring the Crescent City from the ground up, Richard 
       Campanella takes us on a winding journey toward explaining
       the city's distinct urbanism and eccentricities. In 
       Cityscapes of New Orleans, Campanella, a historical 
       geographer and professor at Tulane University, reveals the
       why behind the where, delving into the historical and 
       cultural forces that have shaped the spaces of New Orleans
       for over three centuries. For Campanella, every 
       bewildering street grid and linguistic quirk has a story 
       to tell about the landscape of Louisiana and the geography
       of its best known city. 'Cityscapes' of New Orleans starts
       with an examination of neighborhoods, from the origins of 
       faubourgs and wards to the impact of the slave trade on 
       patterns of residence. Campanella explains how fragments 
       of New Orleans streets continue to elude Google Maps and 
       why humble Creole cottages sit alongside massive Greek 
       Revival mansions. He considers the roles of modern urban 
       planning, environmentalism, and preservation, all of which
       continue to influence the layout of the city and its 
       suburbs. In the book's final section, Campanella explores 
       the impact of natural disasters as well-known as Hurricane
       Katrina and as unfamiliar as Sauvé's Crevasse, an 1849 
       levee break that flooded over two hundred city blocks.
