Cooler than a polar bear’s toenails.

This “Sliver by the River” became super hip after Katrina. While most of the area was plantation land, it does have some of the best architecture in the city. The rise of AirBnB became a huge problem in this area with many houses not having full time residents. It also caused rent and the housing prices to rise to levels that weren’t affordable to locals. The Bywater is a great area for the many folks who don’t like using vehicles. There are a plethora of food and beverage options, exercise classes at Crescent Park, and even artist and co-working spaces. IMO, the Bywater is our little piece of NYC.
