Are you considering making the Marigny home? This New Orleans neighborhood offers walkability, live music, bars, restaurants, shops, amazing old architecture, and somehow still maintains a neighborhood feel. When looking to buy your next pad, the Marigny just might be the spot you’ve been searching for.
This New Orleans neighborhood was filled with Creole Cottage homes when it was being developed, with most lots being 30 x 100. As people acquired the lots next door to them, many Greek Revival homes sprung up in the early 1800s. These days you can still find both of these New Orleans house styles and even a few modern homes have made their way to the city’s first neighborhood.
