Stylin’, whilen, livin’ it up in the city.

 

Welcome to Uptown! Put a group of locals in a room and ask them for the boundaries of Uptown New Orleans. Chances are, you will get different responses.

Uptown was historically a direction meaning movement against the direction of the river. In the 19th century, Canal Street was the dividing line between “Uptown” and “Downtown.” There are still very broad definitions used today when we talk about Uptown – generally, locals are referring to areas of the city closer to the riverside of S. Claiborne, upriver from the Pontchartrain Expressway, and closer to the CBD/Warehouse District neighborhood.

There is, however, a specific neighborhood considered Uptown: Spanning St. Charles Avenue bounded by Magazine St, Lasalle St, Jefferson Avenue, and Napoleon Avenue.

This New Orleans neighborhood is a beautiful mixed bag – you’ll find residential living, commercial businesses, and even some dive bars. There are larger homes, smaller homes, even some grand old homes that have been converted into condos.

Like most neighborhoods in New Orleans, finding off-street parking Uptown will be limited, but it’s not impossible. Housing styles range from Greek Revival, Italianate, Eastlake, Arts and Crafts, and Colonial Revival. The St. Charles streetcar line runs through the neighborhood and you are a quick walk to the parade route! Old families, newbies, renters, homeowners – there’s something for everyone here.

 

Lagniappe: The neighborhood was once known as Faubourg Bouligny until it became part of Jefferson City. The area was annexed by New Orleans in 1870.
