A bit more about setting neighborhood boundaries

In the first post on neighborhoods, I talked about the guidelines I used for defining neighborhoods. One thing I found helpful for setting the neighborhoods was this map of the 30 parishes in Orléans. 

By comparing the borders with the 1648 city plan, I could use the parish borders for some areas. For example, the neighborhood I called the North Side predominantly consists of the parish of St. Paterne along with portions of the adjacent two parishes and a section cut out from the middle of Saint-Pierre-Encentelée for the Place Martroy. In the eastern part of the city, the Abbeys is Sainte-Euverte+Saint Victor+Saint-Aignan.
