A subdistrict of the Uptown/Carrollton Area, its boundaries as defined by the City Planning Commission are: Magazine Street to the north, Napoleon Avenue to the east, the Mississippi River to the south and Exposition, Tchoupitoulas and Webster Streets to the west. This has not traditionally been a separate neighborhood as most of this area has been considered part of Uptown New Orleans throughout most of its history. This name was only artificially created by the City Planning Commission and most residents do not identify with it.
