Uptown Single-Family | New Orleans, LA | Jean Hunn 504-232-3570
While some may quibble about the exact boundaries, Uptown broadly refers to the areas of the city closer to the river. Uptown was built along the higher ground of an old natural river levee on a wide, gradual bend of the Mississippi. Streets were laid out following the River’s curve or perpendicular to it, resulting in what has been called a “wheel with spokes” street pattern. Major roadways echoing the river’s crescent include Tchoupitoulas, closest to the river. Tchoupitoulas was formerly heavily devoted to river shipping commerce; however, as shipping became modernized in the later 20th century, the length street was devoted to residential and other commercial uses. The next major street back is Magazine. While Magazine Street has only one lane of traffic in both directions, it is a major commercial district, known for its many locally owned shops, restaurants, and art galleries. Prytania Street is the next major street inland, although it extends only up to Jefferson Avenue as a major thoroughfare. With easy access to the St. Charles streetcar line, you can hop on and explore other parts of the city, and it’s only a $1.50 ride each way. Some of the best private and parochial schools in New Orleans make this neighborhood attractive to families. Because smaller shotgun and camel back houses are so abundant, especially close to the Mississippi River, Uptown draws renters and younger homeowners as well.
