New Orleans was a major port city on the Gulf coast in the state of Louisiana, United States of America. The city was famous for its French Quarter that contained, among other attractions, Jackson Square and Audubon Park. The New Orleans-class of starship was named after this city in the 24th century. (TOS: "The Cage"; TNG: "Brothers"; DS9: "Image in the Sand", "The Visitor", "Homefront")
In the mid-20th century, people, even those in rural areas, could hear about what was happening in this city on the radio. Though people might feel they were far from events, radio brought them in closer. (TNG: "The Big Goodbye")
The city was the birthplace of various members of the Sisko family, including Benjamin Sisko (in 2332), and was the location of Sisko's, Joseph Sisko's creole restaurant. (DS9: "Equilibrium", "Homefront", "Paradise Lost", "Image in the Sand")

The script for the Star Trek: Deep Space Nine episode "Move Along Home" describes the Chula game section that Benjamin Sisko started in had archways that "reveals the depth and breadth of the continuing labyrinth... like looking across a courtyard in a New Orleans hotel."
