I don’t want to be in love but you’re makin’ me

 

Sitting on naturally higher ground, nestled in between the Garden District and the Central Business District you will find the Lower Garden District (LGD). This neighborhood is bustling! There is a true mix of residential and commercial life happening in this area – shopping, restaurants, local watering holes, historic homes, and condos – all the things are happening here.  The only downfall to this constant flow of action is parking. Luckily, most everything you will need is a walk or bike-ride away so you can park your car and hit the streets. Another bonus is when you do need to drive everything is easy to get to from the LGD – Downtown, Uptown, Westbank or Metairie and beyond. The convenience factor is real y’all.

The architecture is rich and diverse with styles ranging from Greek Revival and Italianate to Queen Anne and eclectically style shotguns. Note the double galleries and generous porches.  Here you will also see multi-story residential buildings built of brick which is different from what you will find in other New Orleans neighborhoods.

Residents will tell you it’s a very close-knit and passionate neighborhood, where people know and look out for one another. They are very active and vocal about their desire to preserve and improve their beloved neighborhood. Have a dog? Go on over to Coliseum Square Park, it’s a perfect place for both you & Fido to make new friends.

 

Lagniappe: The primary  streets  running  perpendicular  to  the  river  are  named  for  the  nine  ancient  Greek  muses—Calliope,  Clio,  Erato,  Thalia,  Melpomene, Terpsichore, Euterpe, Polymnia  and Urania
