The median, to residents of New Orleans.
The flood waters were so high on St. Charles Ave., I had to park on the neutral ground.
My friend's riding on a float in Rex, float 15, neutral ground side.
New Orleans slang for what most cities call the "median" --the little strip of ground in the middle of the road.
Legend has it that the neutral ground got its name from early New Orleans when the French and Spanish could do business between sections of the city standing on the "neutral ground."
