If you’ve made your way down to the Big Easy for Mardi Gras, you’ve probably heard what you thought was the middle of the road called the neutral ground – and then you probably wondered about all the other odd sayings we have here in New Orleans. Don’t test us, we have plenty! But that’s why we have the NOLA Speak series – to help you out and keep you from calling the streetcar a trolley, or the neutral ground a median. On this episode, prominent New Orleanians including Fleurty Girl, Bryan Batt, 610 Stompers and Jeremy Davenport attempt to explain why the patch of grass in between the streets is called something different around here and where the term came from.
