Cooler than a polar bear’s toenails.

There are several theories about how the name for the Bywater came about – the most logical would seem that it’s by the water – so Bywater. This “sliver by the river” offers all the charm, quirks and character you would expect in a New Orleans neighborhood.  It’s one of New Orleans most colorful neighborhoods and the architecture is dreamy especially if you love Creole Cottages, with Victorian touches and details. 

A wonderful neighborhood for walking, biking, and hanging out- you may find yourself never wanting to leave once you move in! 

Lagniappe: Walking distance to bars, restaurants, and shops. All of the Bywater neighborhood was once a plantation.
