All your life, you were only waiting for this moment to arise.
Talk about being stereotyped. There are many assumptions made about Holy Cross and the Lower 9th ward. Maybe some of these rumors rang true many years ago, maybe you just watched too much Treme. Whatever, it is, y’all need to go explore these two awesome New Orleans neighborhoods.
There are beautiful old churches, stunning architecture, museums, and parks. While they may be lacking in restaurants, Cafe Dauphine always keeps their guests happy.
With some of the very best views of the city, you’re gonna love walking your pup or jogging along the Mississippi River levee. You won’t ever get tired of seeing the two Dollut houses. They are iconic steamboat inspired homes right on, and near, the levee.
Creole cottages, traditional shotguns, Queen Anne, and even some random ranch homes will all be found in Holy Cross – and most have more yard space that you can find elsewhere in the city. The Lower 9th Ward even has unique modern homes. In both of these New Orleans neighborhoods, you will find affordable options with all the charm you’ve been looking for!
Lagniappe: The Holy Cross area was named for the Catholic all-boys school that opened up in the area in 1879.
