New Orleans is an American port city located in southern Louisiana known for its unique music, festivals, and dialects. A fictionalized version of the city serves as the setting for Gangstar: New Orleans. It features many of New Orlean's most iconic locations like Bourbon Street and the CBD. In the game, New Orleans is subdivided into twelve "turfs". Although these specific subdivisions do not exist in the real city, the turfs often represent a New Orleans district.
