New Orleans East

New Orleans East, also known by locals as “The East,” is the largest geographical neighborhood of New Orleans. Development began after the Industrial Canal was completed in 1923. From 1939 to 1965, Lincoln Beach, located along the shore of Lake Pontchartrain, was the city’s amusement park for the African-American community during the Jim Crow era. Numerous subdivisions were developed in the 1960s and 1970s for those who preferred a more suburban lifestyle.

Joe W. Brown Memorial Park, named after oil tycoon Joe Brown, provides many amenities, including basketball courts, a stadium, indoor pool, a rec center, track and field, tennis courts, and walking trails. Adjacent to Joe Brown Park is the Audubon Louisiana Nature Center, which consists of 86 acres of hardwood bottomland forest, nature trails, and an Interpretive Center to help you learn about Louisiana’s unique ecosystem and exciting facts about the park and its inhabitants.
