Take a walk or ride down Harrison Avenue and check out the neighborhood shops and restaurants that line the street, allowing residents to shop, dine and be entertained right in their own community.
 
Lakeview is home to a variety of architectural types, from 1950s cottages and Craftsman inspired homes to … (1 comments)

new orleans neighborhoods: Mid City :: New Orleans Neighborhood - 07/11/18 01:04 PM

Mid City New OrleansWhat else would you call the middle of New Orleans but Mid City? Well, in the old days it was referred to as "back of town", but as New Orleans spread from the river all the way to the lake, Mid City came into being in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

It's a pretty big area of the city, including the City Park and Bayou St. John neighborhoods. Mid City as a whole is home to a number of tourist destinations such as City Park and the New Orleans Museum of Art. But, overall, it's generally … (2 comments)

new orleans neighborhoods: Holy Cross New Orleans Neighborhood Guide - 06/07/18 08:08 AM
About Holy CrossYears from now, new residents will wonder how the Holy Cross New Orleans neighborhood got it's name, since the school that gave rise to the moniker has relocated to Gentilly. But this subsection of the Lower 9th Ward, between St. Claude and the river, will always be remembered by natives as Holy Cross.
Measuring less than 1 square mile, Holy Cross took a hard hit during Hurricane Katrina. This is evidenced by the number of empty lots and homes still in need of rebuilding, even in 2018. But the neighborhood is definitely experiencing a comeback in popularity, as home buyers find … (0 comments)

new orleans neighborhoods: Discover the Fairgrounds New Orleans Neighborhood - 06/05/18 07:11 AM
Fairgrounds Neighborhood New OrleansSurrounding the Fair Grounds Race Course in Mid City, the Fairgrounds neighborhood is mostly residential, with the architecture dominated by raised cottages, shotguns, and townhouse style homes that sit on long, narrower lots.
Bordered by Bayou St. John, you'll find City Park, the New Orleans Museum of Art, and plenty of outdoor activities nearby.
Buyer beware, though! For 2 weekends each spring, the Fairgrounds neighborhood is inundated with both locals and tourists during Jazz Fest. If you don't have off street parking, you'll need to butter up that neighbor that does so you don't get stuck schlepping groceries … (0 comments)

new orleans neighborhoods: Discover the Treme Neighborhood in New Orleans [VIDEO] - 05/13/16 06:20 AM
Treme, New Orleans LA
Treme showed up on the radar for new residents after HBO produced the series with the same name. While the show was as close to the real New Orleans as anything else that's ever been on television, it doesn't hold a candle to the real thing.
The Treme neighborhood is ever evolving and the dreaded G-word (gentrification) has become the reality for many long time residents. As prices in the French Quarter, the Marigny and the Bywater have continued to rise, people are turning to Treme. Investors have been renovating and flipping homes at much higher price points than we've seen … (5 comments)
