New Orleans Architecture

New Orleans features architectural delights around every corner 

Drive, walk or bike through the neighborhoods of the Crescent City --Uptown, the Garden District, the Marigny, the Treme, the French Quarter, Algiers -- every neighborhood is a living architectural museum with homes and buildings that combine classical styles with New Orleans whimsy. Some of the homes are grand; along Bayou St. John and St. Charles Avenue sit breathtaking stately mansions. Many others are modest yet unique. All are cherished links to the generations of New Orleanians who have lived and laughed and loved behind these doors.
