The Garden District New Orleans
The ante-bellum Greek revival residences built by the prosperous Americans in what we today call the Garden District are some of the most beautiful in this country. It is here where these striking homes can still be seen in much of their original splendor. The manicured gardens and spectacular homes attract countless admirers annually from all over the world.There are also blocks of modest cottages near St. Mary’s and St. Alphonsus Churches, as well as elegant townhouses on Coliseum Square.
The Garden District’s location is ideal in that it is centrally located between Uptown New Orleans and the CBD/Warehouse District and French Quarter. From here you are about a mile and a half walk to the French Quarter in one direction or about three miles from Audubon Park in the other direction. One can be uptown or downtown in mere minutes. Living on or near St. Charles Ave in the Garden District, you are assured to be situated on the parade route during Mardi Gras, which is always a huge plus!
Near the Garden District is The Irish Channel, a section roughly bounded by Magazine Street, Jackson Avenue, the river and Louisiana Avenue. Magazine Street begins with its antique stores, restaurants, artistic shops and studios. On a nice sunny day, this section is the ideal place to stroll along, stopping for coffee or an adult beverage or shopping in the unique local boutiques found along this stretch.
