    Magazine Street makes it easy to be in some kind of party because of the myriad number of stores, bars, restaurants, coffee shops and art galleries. Art galleries are the gems of Magazine Street, displaying the true nature of New Orleans heart. Although Magazine Street is a few miles long, you can easily move from distant blocks with transportation and then walk for few blocks to access and admire what that particular block(s) has to offer.

    I was lately able to enjoy one of the best art shows at the DDM Gallery on 3426 Magazine Street, where artist like Marianna Canu and a few more others are on display. Take the time to be a part of one of the most vibrant streets in the beautiful city of New Orleans. Also, there are some available properties for sale in the area. If you would like to become a resident of this neighborhood, make your move!

    Many different architectural styles can be found along this street including: Victorian cottages and shotguns with gingerbread millwork, as well as Greek Revival with columns. It was named for a "magazin", a warehouse built in the 1700's where products were stored before exporting.

    Ride the St. Charles Avenue streetcar, hop off anywhere between Jackson Avenue and Louisiana Avenue, and stroll around this picturesque neighborhood known for its larger scale magnificent homes with their lush gardens. Built in the late 1800's, largely for Americans who became wealthy from the sugar, cotton and shipping industries, these mansions were made in the more elaborate Italianate, Greek Revival, and Victorian style. The Garden District extends from St. Charles Avenue to Magazine Street; a vibrant shopping area with many restaurants, bars, shops, and entertainment.

    When discussing neighborhoods in New Orleans, we often throw names around loosely. Places such as “Uptown,” or “Lakeview” may actually encompass three or more different actual neighborhoods. I certainly don't know anybody who, when asked where they live, says they live in West Riverside - or East Riverside for that matter. In fact, the City Planning Commission has designated 73 official neighborhoods in the city of New Orleans. While in our day to day lives, it may not matter that we are referring to the Irish Channel as “Uptown,” it will matter when purchasing or selling a home. Many important factors considered by home buyers, from zoning regulations to market trends, are governed along these lines. Therefore, whether you're buying or selling, it is important you know where your home actually is according to the government.

  • On the corner of St. Charles Avenue and State Street sits a stately mansion, worthy of all the pomp and circumstance associated with Uptown New Orleans. But, you must remember, New Orleans, with all of her history, elegance and, yes, excesses, is also a city with a grand sense of humor in which its denizens know well how to celebrate "The Season." And when, exactly, is that season? I would say it begins with Halloween and lasts through Dirty Linen night at the end of summer...so it's effectively the entire year.

    However, Halloween, the season's opener, is worthy of further explanation as its origin is inextricably woven into the Catholic fabric of New Orleans. We all know October 31 is Halloween, but the date also marks the evening before All Saints Day. November 1 is the day on which Catholics and many Anglicans honor all their saints or hallows, hence the name All Hallows' Eve. In the carnival celebrations of All Hallows' Eve, our ancestors utilized humor and ridicule to fully face death.

    So, New Orleanians, with their love for the saints and their propensity for satire, have finely honed this ridiculing weapon into a grand citywide carnival manifest in the parties and decorations that line the finest avenues and most humble residences alike. There is no distinction. All are included in this grand celebration.

    Observe the photos of the mansion at St. Charles and State Street. Marvel at the history and tradition. Join us as we begin the next "Season" that is exclusively New Orleans.

    Visitors to New Orleans often comment about our many trees and how much green space there is here. For a medium size city in terms of square miles it does have a large percentage of green spaces in the form of parks large and small. The two largest parks, Audubon Park (in the Uptown area) and City Park (In the Mid-City/Lakefront area) are home to the Audubon Zoo and the New Orleans Museum of Art. Combined with the Mississippi River, Lake Pontchartrain, and many other lakes and bayous, the area offers many recreational opportunities, such as river cruises, boating and fishing, as well as providing a cooling respite from the summer's heat.
