Uptown - vs. Stats

Stretching from Broadway and beginning upriver from the Garden District, is the self-contained residential world of the Uptown District. Scrupulously maintained 19th Century homes, unique and small restaurants and shops make the feeling that you are in a village within a city.

Even today, Uptown retains the grand homes built along St. Charles Avenue in the 1890s, and exclusive cul-de-sac neighborhood developments like Rosa Park. Stately oaks shade the streets intersecting St. Charles, which is Uptown’s most prestigious street. Majestic framed houses with beautiful yards and ample galleries are a staple for the community. The closer to the river one travels, one can find New Orleans style shotguns built in the 19th century, and today these are steadily being refurbished to maintain and insure Uptown’s status as New Orleans’ premier residential neighborhood.

In 1723, Louisiana Governor Jean Baptiste LeMoyne, Sier de Bienville, granted the Uptown lands by dividing them into smaller plantations. By the 1884 World’s Industrial and Cotton Centennial Exposition the areas near and away from St. Charles Avenue boomed in expansion and construction.

Today Uptown is best experienced by touring the beautiful streets lined with impressive homes, and visiting bistros, art galleries and shops along Magazine Street. Tourists enjoy the streetcar service along St. Charles Avenue.
