Mid-City is one of the largest of New Orleans' 73 neighborhoods, and one of its most diverse. The neighborhood extends roughly from the Pontchartrain Expressway/Earhart on the south/Riverside to Orleans Avenue on the north/Lakeside, and City Park Avenue on the upriver side of the neighborhood to Broad Street (sometimes Claiborne Avenue) on the downriver side. Mid-City is also one of the few neighborhoods whose demographic composition is representative of the diversity of New Orleans at large.
Mid-City is home to a number of cultural and social institutions, including the New Orleans Museum of Art, Angelo Brocato's cannoli/gelato/spumoni, Jesuit High School, the Criminal Court and Justice Complex, the Dixie and Falstaff Breweries, a part of the New Orleans Medical District and the new joint VA-LSU Charity Hospitals, and Warren Easton High School. The Canal Street and Carrollton Avenue streetcar lines also run through the neighborhood.

A hodad is a guy who pretends to be a surfer but really isn't. He may or may not actually surf, but for the most part chills at the beach and tries to look cool to pick up women.
