Mardi Gras Decorations and ParadesGreat Second Homers Have "Fun and Desires"New Orleans Condos as Second Homes      The vast majority of second homers buy New Orleans Condos as a place for their family and relatives to stay. Most of the buyers would buy in the French Quarter before 2000. There was a few places Uptown and in the Warehouse District. Now there are plenty of places adjacent from the French Quarter Condo Market. The Marigny, Treme and Bywater neighborhoods have become more popular now.

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 !

The front units with porches and balconies are the best and most expensive units. The ones in the rear and on the side are less expensive.       The location is an easy walk to all historic features in the French Quarter.

Royal Street in French QuarterWalk from Your French Quarter CondoGreat Historic Walk !      Walking for Esplanade Avenue down Royal Street to the 800 block. These are photos of the walk. This area is a prime area for homes and condos along Royal Street. So many historic building and galleries along the way.  Never a lot of places for sale along this walk or on Chartres as many buyers stay and own places for a long time and do not leave.      Having a second home in the French Quarter makes Royal Street one of the favorite walks. Lots of unique shops and places to eat and drink along the way. The corners are always prime galleries and historic buildings. There are a few homes near Esplanade Avenue.        This is the first half of the walk that I took to Canal Street. Will post the secod...

Landmarks of Historical EventsNew Orleans French Quarter History    Always great to see historical statues in an historic area of New Orleans. Gives you the idea of how long the French Quarter has been around. Most have to do with local people or people who made histroy. So fun to walk the area and then check out the history behind all these statues. Statue of the Immigrants at Woldenberg Park       Along the Mississippi River along Woldenburg Park you can see this statue.  This serves as a monument to New Orleans' Italian immigrants.  On St Joseph day March 19, 1995  this statue was unveiled.  Without money and without  knowing the language these immigrants came to New Orleans to start a new life.  Their dedication and their drive helped developed New Orleans in the early 1900.  Musici...

Bourbon Street HomesNew Orleans French QuarterA Variety of Historic Homes      Most people think Bourbon Street is all bars and night clubs. Take a look and see the houses as you get closer to Esplanade Avenue. The variety and colorful homes, condos and doubles stand out as you walk the street.        The first bar is Lafites Blacksmith which is one of the oldest continuing operating bars in the United States. Few streets will you see this kind of variety of homes. The 12 blocks of Bourbon start at Canal Street and end at Esplanade Avenue. Most of the homes are towards Esplanade Avenue.

Saint Roch CemeteryBywater/ Marigny NeighborhoodNew Orleans, La.      St. Roch Cemetery was founded by Reverend P.L. Thevis in 1874. During one of New Orleans’ Yellow Fever outbreaks, the patron saint of protection from epidemics, Saint Roch, was prayed to and was asked to protect the people of New Orleans during this epidemic. When nobody from the Reverend’s Church died of Yellow Fever, Thevis founded this Cemetery, as part of his promise to Saint Roch. He promised that if Saint Roch would keep his people safe, he would build a chapel to Saint Roch. This Chapel is now inside of St. Roch Cemetery.

Blooming BalconiesNew Orleans French Quarter Green and Colorful     The plants,flags,wrought iron and balconies give the French Quarter balconies a unique feel. As the seasons change so do the variety of plants. So many ferns and seasonal plants give the area a greenhouse effect. Many of the balconies are kept up by the condo association and the home owners. A Lot of pride goes into the upkeep.

Mississippi River TrafficGreat Walk and WatchFrench Quarter Walk       Having a second home in New Orleans wether you are in the French Quarter, Warehouse District, or Marigny the Mississippi River Walk is always a place to look and listen to the Mississippi River. The River is like a slowing moving highway of water moving through the town. Heading to the Gulf which is 3-4 hours away on a ship.     Each ship, river boat or ferry always has a story behind it. One of the many sights worth seeing when you come to New Orleans.   Creole Queen is a party boat and tourist attraction...Take the "Thomas Jefferson" Ferry to AlgiersNew Orleans is a Busy Port with plenty of freighters going by..Take the Natchez down river to Chalmette Battle Field, War of 1812The Freighter and the Algiers Ferry Pas...
