3 Things to Love About the Lower Garden District

Are you still searching for the perfect New Orleans neighborhood to call home?

In our continuing quest to provide more than the typical canned descriptions of living in the Crescent City, we recently asked some Lower Garden District (aka the LGD) residents to tell us what they love about their ‘hood.

Here are the fantastic answers we received.

Lower Garden District, New Orleans LA



Easy biking to the Quarter & CBD, to Freret, and beyond (depending on how in shape you are) ~ Molly


Great restaurants and bars that usually aren’t super crowded ~ Chris


Proximity to everything in the city, small town feel but with everything a city can offer ~ Matt


It has a quiet neighborhood feel yet it’s in a densely populated urban setting. We’re conveniently located between uptown and downtown. There are all types people of various education, ethnic, and financial backgrounds all living together. It’s walkable, bike-able, and streetcar-able… Its historic with fantastic architecture and landmarks. You run into people visiting from all over the world. Also, it’s full of local shops and stores and not your typical rubber stamp american neighborhood full of big chain box stores and chain restaurants. In fact, we have world class dining options in the LGD…….. and, to add the icing on the cake… its above sea level. ~ Christopher



All the best people are here. I love walking down the street and seeing people I know  ~ Taylor


I always say how nice it is that if I ever feel like I’m lacking some quality socialization in my life all I have to do is walk out my front door  ~ David


Everybody knows everybody, within walking distance are most of my main necessities… Like Sesame Street with more bars and less muppets ~ Molly



Crepe myrtle-lined streets… ~ Molly


It smells of magnolia, sweet olive, honeysuckles. When you wake up on Sundays it’s to the sound of carriages going by, horses clopping, and church bells. Sometimes you can watch a second line from your window. The neighbors are pretty damn cool as well. It’s an audiovisual feast for the senses.. ~ Khanh
