Local Reviews

The neighbor has become mixed, close to bus stops, churches and schools. I like the convenience of stores nearby and transportation can easily be obtain on streetcar or bus.

All commutes are fairly easy, whether for work or pleasure. My friends agree with me. My neighbors agree with me also.

I'm near the historical St Charles streetcar line, and the parades pass by. Also there are famous restaurants and cemetery down the street.

The area is unique but what isn't in New Orleans. I love my grocer Zara's and anything down magazine st
