Mid City New Orleans

What 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 a residential area, filled with restaurants and bars that depend on locals instead of tourists for their business. Jump on the red streetcar line that chugs along Canal Street and you can get to just about anywhere.

The majority of Mid City homes have 2 to 3 bedrooms and 2 baths, with an average size of around 1,700 square feet of living area. You've got a better than 50/50 shot at off street parking, although some of the older streets don't offer this amenity.

NOTE: Mid City will soon be included as a historic district, subject to HDLC (Historic District Landmarks Commission) regulations on property exteriors

The architecture is predominantly shotguns and raised Creole cottages, with a few townhouse style homes thrown in here and there. You can expect to find Craftsman touches, high ceilings, hardwood floors, narrow lots and some amazing renovations.
