French Quarter CornersHomes, Condos and ShopsSo "Unique and Historic"      The French Quarter is known for its historic buildings, galleries,windows, hanging baskets and much more. The buildings on the corners are unique and beautiful. Many are condos on the second and third floors. Many have a business on the first floor while others are liiving areas.       The Corner Store is common for the quarter. So many of these great corners have galleries with wrought iron rails and supports. Living on the corner with wrap around galleries are a true historic feature found in very few spots in the USA.       Often times the galleries look like fern city with all the plants and greenery. Many times they all decorate for the many New Orleans holidays.

World War I MonumentCommerating Ninth Ward Residents3800 Block of Burgundy Street       The Monument was erected in 1919 to honor the residents of the Ninth Ward that took park in World War I. There were 1231 men and one woman named on the monument. The monument was initially constructed in the middle of Macarty Park.        The Monument was moved to edge of Burgundy Street in 1951 so that the playground at Francis T. Nicholls High School could be enlarged. Kids needed a place to play during physical education class. This is where I went to high school so remembering seeing it everyday for 3 years but knew little about the Monument.      I find few people know about the Monument that live in New Orleans so it is good to bring it to people attention. Hard to believe it has been there for...

Bywater Neighborhood in New OrleansSo Many Colorful Homes and DoublesA Very Artistic Neighborhood      The Homes along the Mississippi River in the Bywater neighbor are very colorful and artistic. The area also has many doubles. The Bywater stretches from the Marigny to the Industrial Canal between St. Claude Avenue and the Mississippi River. There is no other neighborhood in the USA that I know of.       The Neighborhood has changed in color and artistic homes in the last 20 years. It never existed like this in the 20th century. It is fun to walk and view all the homes and unique colors and changes that have been made to the homes. A Few Atristic Homes in Bywater,Very Unique and Colorful !

New Orleans Warehouse DistrictMarch 15-May 17, 2017    Wednesday at the Square, sponsored by the Young Leadership Council of New Orleans, is a series of free outdoor concerts by well-known New Orleans and Louisiana artists that will liven up your spirits and maybe even get you into a dancing mood.     Lafayette Square is a Streetcar ride from most areas of town since it borders St. Charles Avenue. It is an easy walk from the French Quarter and all areas of the New Orleans Warehouse District. I always see past clients of mine coming to listen, drink and eat. Many are second homers who come to enjoy a variety of good times.    The concerts are free and you pay indirectly through buying food and drinks. The Concert is run by a non profit Young Leadership council. Almost all the concerts fe...

Knowing the Condo AssociationsNew Orleans Metro CondosCommon Areas and AssessmentsKnow the Trends of the Condo AssociationWhat is a Plus?         Knowing all the Common Areas of an association is very important. Buyers like to know the Common Areas. Things like Swimming Pools, Gyms, Courtyards, Rooftop Areas with Views, Parking Lots and Garages. Security of the Association and the Management Company does also make a difference. The Areas of the Association within the Neighborhood also makes a difference. Knowing where you can walk and take a streetcar is a plus.        Knowing what the condo fees cover is also a great thing to know. I always get a copy of the budget so the buyers can see all that is taken care of. Many agents just think it is insurance and water. There are so many more ...

The Bywater Neighborhood of New Orleans Historic and Colorful Bywater Homes     The Bywater Neighborhood runs along the Mississippi River From the railroad tracks on Press Street to the Industrial Canal. The St. Claude Avenue to the Mississippi River is the other boundary. When I was in high school the area was known as the Upper Ninth Ward. The local telephone exchange was known as Bwater and was changed to the Bywater.        The area has become to be a home for many artistic people. Its an easy bike ride, walk or jog to the French Quarter. The area is an historic district so home have to match the historic neighborhood. The new ones and those that have been remodeled are required to be historic in design to fit the neighborhood.     At one time the area was home to people that worke...

 Bywater Homes in New OrleansColorful Bywater Real EstateGreat Neighborhood to Walk and Ride Bikes           The real estate in the Bywater Neighborhood is one of the most colorful and walk able neighborhoods in New Orleans and the United States.

Krewe of Rex ParadeFeb. 26,2020Watched on Napoleon Avenue for 30 plus years        Free Views of very great parades during Mardi Gras. Great things for second home condo owners to do with family and friends. I have watched this parade with my kids for about 35 years ago on Napoleon Avenue. Great to bring chairs and eats to watch the parades and marchers for 3-5 hours. There are more families that watch the parades this century.             A Variety of marchers and bands between the floats. There are different floats each and every year with a few the same ones. Music and Colorful Views every few minutes.
