Until the early 20th century, construction was largely limited to the slightly higher ground along the long meander of the Mississippi River flanked by a natural levee created by the depositional processes of the river.This gave the 19th century city the shape of a crescent nested along the curving meander in the river, the origin of the nickname "The Crescent City".Between the developed higher ground near the Mississippi and the shores of Lake Pontchartrain, most of the area was low-lying wetlands, some of which lies significantly below sea level.A strict building code was adopted for all new construction, so that it would resemble the traditional adobe structures.There would be no such think ever allowed as a freeway through the old 17th century city center.
