"Where's the West Bank?" ...You see the area south of the Mississippi River in New Orleans, THAT'S US!!
I bet you're thinking, "Why is it called the 'West Bank' if it's South of the river?" Look we didn't create the name, we're just using it! But if we had to take a wild guess -- more than 95% of the Mississippi River's 2,320 miles flows North & South, it's just that the portion separating New Orleans' East & West Banks also flows East & West! Strange, huh?
