Stone Logan HY 104 Dr. Ratliff September 14, 2019 Module 3 Assignment Around the early to mid-1800s, despite the location of the city most immigrants experienced similar trends of settling in the center of the city (Brinkley 432). The city of New Orleans, Louisiana, was a development that experienced natural obstacles because of its geographical location. As shown in the document, New Orleans Streetcars animation, you can see that on the South side of New Orleans, they are surrounded by the Mississippi River. Being surrounded by the river was one obstacle, but the river itself was in the shape of a horseshoe which prevented much of the city’s development. Flooding has always been an issue for New Orleans and surrounding areas due to the swamps located in the lower regions, which made any efforts to expand out of main city center nearly impossible. The constant water issues kept the New Orleans streets in terrible, muddy conditions, making it difficult for getting transportation in and out of the city. This impacted business in the city because the travel was such an issue. The transportation issue also impacted housing because people were limited to where they could live.
