Developed in the late 1920s, Lakeview was formed around the New Basin Canal, a shipping canal cut from Lake Pontchartrain to the center of New Orleans. New Basin Canal was filled in 1950, and it is now the median (New Basis Canal Park) for Pontchartrain Boulevard and West End Boulevard. The original architectural styles ranged from Spanish cottages to post-WWII brick ranch houses. After Hurricane Katrina, those homes were destroyed and replaced by larger, modern residences during the recovery phase.

Lakeview sits adjacent to City Park, the 87th largest and 20th most-visited urban public park in the United States. Many restaurants, coffee shops, boutiques, and other businesses operate along Harrison Avenue. The commute to Downtown New Orleans is less than 15 minutes without heavy traffic.
