Craiglist Rental Has No Idea Where Any NOLA Neighborhood Is

Anyone remember that New Orleans Levee story from years and years ago (RIP to our favorite satirical newspaper) where confused tourists kept venturing further and further away from Jazzfest as even more disinterested locals sent them past their uncle's place? You know the uncle and the story. This is that bit of satire packaged in a contemporary, awful Craigslist ad. Its title says it all — LIVE IN BEAUTIFUL MID CITY! BETWEEN DOWNTOWN AND THE BYWATER! You know, in between two neighborhoods that are the same opposite direction of MidCity and therefore impossible to squeeze actual MidCity between. Sure. $850 a month isn't all that terrible of a deal for an 840 square feet one bedroom with off-street parking but if the exclamation-happy copy is any indication, you may want to look elsewhere.
