When I first looked at it, I thought that it couldn't be recent. Then I really looked. All the dark green should be grey streets. For those not familiar with the area, in the bottom right corner, you see the river, near the middle (bottom) the white circle is the superdome. From the superdome to the river and upward along the river is the French quarter. It's mostly grey, and if you follow on around the bend in the river, that's our friends' neighborhoods, the Marigny and the Bywater. It's also grey. Following the link will open a larger picture and clicking the picture should zoom in, but it might be harder to navigate. I'm holding out a little hope. People with more familiarity with New Orleans should feel free to comment and point out other areas of interest.
