Arts/Warehouse District

What details capture a community? In the Warehouse Arts District it’s 19th century paving stones and 21st Century rooftop swimming pools, grilled Gulf redfish and warm baguettes, a B-17 Flying Fortress called “My Gal Sal”and an African-American self-taught artist named Clementine Hunter. This urbane neighborhood is where New Orleans’ past and present meet up for drinks while the future texts “I’m on my way.” Famed for institutions like the National WWII Museum and the Ogden Museum of Southern Art and events like the First Saturday Julia Street art walk, it also offers smaller delights: Watching young ballerinas en pointe framed in a plate glass window; sharing a pizza beneath the stars or brunching on coconut French toast. Vital and alive, the Warehouse District glows like those old school Edison light bulbs. Delight in the art on its walls and celebrate the life in its streets.
