The Gulf Intracoastal Waterway
There appears to be some confusion as to the proper name for the waterway on which the A-MID fronts. Some maps identify it as the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway while others show it as the Mississippi River-Gulf Outlet. The confusion may stem from the fact that the Intracoastal Waterway was in existence prior to the authorization and construction of the Gulf Outlet. This photograph provides a view from A-MID looking towards the Central Business District. The Lower Ninth Ward lies beyond the large, low-lying tract of land across the Waterway from A-MID.
