LAKEVIEW HISTORY: Lakeview is a large neighborhood in New Orleans. In the 19th century and early 20th century, the area was mostly undeveloped swamp. The New Basin Canal was cut through the area in the early 19th century. Large scale residential development of most of the area began after World War II with the predominant housing style being bungalows. Originally it was mostly middle class, but became more economically upscale. Lakeview was one of the most severely devastated sections of the city after Hurricane Katrina. Floodwaters from the Federal levee failure inundated the neighborhood in a matter of minutes, uprooting trees, and even completely washing away some houses upon impact. Some areas received as much as fourteen feet of floodwater. Fortunately, most of the residents had the means to escape the city before the storm came ashore, but their homes were not so lucky. Post Katrina Lakeview is coming back with a vengeance! It is rebuilding at an energetic pace and serves as an inspiration to all New Orleanians rebuilding their lives.
