Uptown New Orleans, which, broadly defined, stretches from the River to S. Claiborne Avenue, and Jackson Avenue to Broadway, is renown for its towering oak trees and stately homes. Although just minutes from downtown New Orleans, its impeccable cottages, winding streets and intimate restaurants make locals and visitors alike feel as if they are inhabiting a small village rather then a world famous city.
The Uptown neighborhoods are bubbling with local flavor of all sorts, from Mardi Gras Parades to Kickball Tournaments, and peaceful Latter Library to the Po’Boy Preservation Festival.
Locals enjoy the lush green spaces of Audubon Park, with its golf course, horse stable, zoo and ambling walking paths. A few blocks down Magazine Street from Audubon Park, you will find a wealth of clothing boutiques, antique stores, restaurants and art galleries, filled with students, tourists, and natives alike. When you grow tired of ambling down Magazine, it is a quick walk to the Saint Charles Street Car line and a relaxed ride down it’s scenic and historic route.
Uptown New Orleans is also a fantastic and endless source for food and music. If you are feeling hungry you will find everything from an overstuffed Mahoney’s Po’Boys to a plate of delicate sashimi from Origami. For you night owls, Le Bon Temps Roule and The Maple Leaf Bar are filled with music lovers and bar flies at all hours.
For the more pragmatic of you, Uptown New Orleans possesses world class grocery stores such as Whole Foods and Fresh Market, a variety of local gyms, three world class hospitals, and highly regarded schools, such as Lusher Charter School, Isidore Newman and and Sacret Heart. Both Tulane University and Loyola are also nestled along Audubon Park.
Uptown is a friendly, peaceful and safe place to make a home and Williamson Brothers can help make your uptown dream a reality.
