A collection of neighborhoods anchored by St. Charles and Jefferson Avenues, Uptown gives off an inviting village atmosphere while packing a lot of punch style-wise. One of the most desirable districts in NOLA, you’ll find a varied collection of local businesses, antique shops, and well-preserved historic homes in this area. Described as a “self-contained residential world,” Uptown is situated upriver from the Pontchartrain Expressway and the Garden District, on the east bank of the Mississippi. On most days, it’s a gracious and serene neighborhood, but Uptown transforms come Mardi Gras when its shady trees are festooned with beads, lending mystery and color.
- Uptown’s Audubon Park, which was named after famed naturalist John James Audubon, is one of the most beautiful green spaces in the city. The park is home to a prominent rookery called Bird Island, where you can find several species of birds, including great egrets, and yellow-crowned night herons. The park also features a jogging path, tennis courts, park stables, playgrounds, and a pool.
- Two institutions of higher learning are found within Uptown. Tulane University, its campus grounds lush and littered with great oak trees, offers outstanding programs in architecture, law, liberal arts, medicine, and engineering, among others. Located adjacent to Tulane is Loyola University, one of the best colleges in the country.
- You’ll find plenty of great shopping and dining options along bustling Magazine Street, which stretches around six miles from Uptown all the way to the Garden District. Antique lovers will surely get a treat as this thoroughfare is home to some of the best antique boutiques in the city. Architecture enthusiasts will also enjoy Magazine Street as it is home to structures built in varied styles, from Greek Revival to Victorian cottages.
Housing options in NOLA are as diverse as its population, and the neighborhood of Uptown is no exception. You’ll find grand mansions lining the streets of St. Charles Avenue, while more modest Shotgun homes can be found near the river. Expect to find raised center-hall cottages and double-gallery homes in the area as well.
