Algiers Point Real Estate
The second oldest neighborhood in New Orleans, Algiers Point is filled with historic architecture and walkable streets.
A tight knit community, you’ll find corner coffee shops, parks, playgrounds, pubs, grocers, wine bars and a great live music venue just across the river from downtown. The Algiers Point Association is an active resident civic organization established in 1972.
The Point is the location for several annual events:
- Friendship Day (March)
- Wednesdays on the Point (live summer concert series)
- Home Tour (October)
- Treasures from the Point (annual neighborhood porch sale)
- Holidays on the Point
Easily accessible from the pedestrian only Canal St. Ferry, Algiers Point has a rich history dating back to the 1700s.
Designated a historic district in 1993, there are still some buildings from the 1840s, but the majority were built after a massive fire in 1895.
Prevalent architecture includes Greek Revivals, Italianates, Victorians and the traditional New Orleans shotgun, most on narrow lots with little to no front yard. Scattered through the neighborhood you will find some larger properties, but they are not the norm.
As with Uptown, off street parking is a bonus that often pushes a home’s values above comparable properties without private parking.
