Algiers :: New Orleans LA Neighborhood The West Bank of New Orleans

About Algiers

The only part of the city of New Orleans that’s on the West Bank of the Mississippi River, Algiers has a long and storied history dating back to the settlement of the city.

More suburban than most of New Orleans, Algiers has not just neighborhoods, but true subdivisions that were developed mostly in the late 60s and early 70s, with a few newer additions.

Cross the intracoastal canal and you can explore the rural feeling of the Lower Coast or find the upscale gated communities of English Turn and the Arbors.

General de Gaulle is the main artery into Algiers, lined with options for dining, shopping, fast food, drug stores and more.

Architecture ranges from small post WWII homes on large lots to newer construction along the river. The predominant styles are ranch, mid-century modern and traditional homes, located on tree lined streets.
