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 from blocks away. What do residents love about the neighborhood? Diversity, walkability, neighbors, peaceful, charm, welcoming. These are al...

The French Quarter Views Streets, Unique Shops and Window Shopping       One of the reasons owning a second home in the French Quarter is there is always so muc to see and do. The activities change monthly. In addition to Christmas, New Years, Mardi Gras, French Quarter Fest, Jazz Fest, Conventions, Saints Football games you just have a lot to see.       Just walking the streets looking into shops and windows is totally different than where people make their first home.  They the second homers come to have fun and have a good time. Just park the car and walk for a weekend or weeks and you never get to see it all.     French Quarter Window Shopping   It's Fun and it Free...Window Shopping leading to Carinval Window Shopping for Art Work, Colorful and Bright  Lots of Unique Clothes, "Hon...

Krewe of Bosom BuddiesWalking Parade Feb. 24, 2017  French Quarter Walking Parade      One of the many things people enjoy watching and interacting with are the walking parades in the French Quarter. If you own a second home in French Quarter, Marigny and Bywater you can just walk over to enjoy these colorful walks.       It is like a color party of colorful ladies having fun walking through the quarter down Bourbon and Royal Streets. They follow the jazz bands while they throw out trinkets and beads. The costumes are so colorful. The ladies are so happy.     The Krewe is one of several walking parades that wander through the Quarter during Mardi Gras season. This one starts about noon on Feb. 24, 2017. Great weather and lots of color walking the streets. Along the Parade Route Parties ...

The Next Holiday CelebrationMardi Gras 2018, Feb, 2018Always Colorful     One of the reasons the French Quarter in New Orleans is a great place for second homes is the many many festivals and celebrations that happens in New Orleans. So many people and businesses like to decorate for the next celebration.       These photos are from a recent photo walk in the French Quarter. People decorate early and like to add color to balconies, porches and windows. You will see even more decorations in the next week.        People come to town with friend and relatives to enjoy the time and fun that the city has almost every month during the year.

In no particular order, here are the 6 neighborhood winners.St Vincent Corner StoreIn addition to a large beer and snack selection, the kind folks at St Vincent Corner Store will also hold packages for you if you have them shipped there.

New Orleans Warehouse District WalkNew Orleans, La. 70130    One of the most interesting and fun things about the Warehouse District in New Orleans is that it a very walkable place. This makes it fun for people who have second homes here and great for people who live in the area full time.

St. Elizabeth's Condos 1314 Napoleon Avenue New Orleans, La, 70115      There is a lot of History behind the St. Elizabeth's Condos in Uptown New Orleans. They were onverted into condos in 2005 and have trended upwards in p-rice and demand since that time. In 1993 is was bought by Anne Rice, the famous New Orleans author. Going back to 1865 the building was opened as a school.     Orphanage. St. Elizabeth's Home for Girls and stayed that way for over 100 years. In 1989 it became apartments until Anne Rice Purchased it. The inside has some great looks but the outside is a great condo association to take photos of the exterior. The angels and windows are amazing along with the shutters, wrought iron, brick, porches and doors.

                                Historic Creole Cottages      1790-1840     New Orleans Homes      Creole Cottages were built along the Gulf Coast when Spain and France had the area as colonies. New Orleans French Quarter is the one place that had the cottages built close to the ground and right on the street. The majority of the homes were 1.5 stories with 4 rooms down and bedrooms up. The four rooms down were all square with a kitchen in the courtyard that was a separate building. No kitchen in the house.      Most of the units were built of plaster and stucco. None in the French Quarter were set pback or had porches like cottages in rural areas. There is a few in the Marigny across Esplanade but the majority are in the Quarter. A few may be in Treme close to the Quarter.      I know ...

Wall of Swamp ArtBreaux Mart Grocery3233 Magazine Street,New Orleans, 70115      Breaux Mart is a great place to shop for groceries in Uptown New Orleans. Between Toledano Street and Pleasant Street. You see an entire building on the Pleaant Street side of Swamp Art. The entire side of art covers this section of the store. Well worth the walk to look and see how colorful and wonderful the mural is.      In the early 1970's this was a new A&P store but when they closed Breaux Mart took over and remodeled in a great location.       Walking the neighborhoods of New Orleans gives you so many things to view and talk about. This one is fun to share and fun to take photos of the Swamp Mural. Hats Off to Breaux Mart for the Art.
