Venetian Isles, New Orleans
Legally a part of the city, Venetian Isles is separated from the bulk of the developed portion of the city by miles of undeveloped land. It long had the appearance of a small fishing town. In the late 20th century it saw development as a suburban style bedroom community.
Venetian Isles was hit hard by storm surge during Hurricane Katrina in 2005. As it lies outside of the City's levee system, it experienced damage similar to that seen in Pearlington, Mississippi and Pass Christian.
