My granddaughter lives in the Uptown section of Orleans Parish in New Orleans on the east bank of the Mississippi between the French Quarter and the Jefferson Parish line. It is a mixed residential area, small commercial and a wealth of 19th Century architecture.
It’s that architecture that is so interesting to see as we walked through the various neighborhoods. No two buildings are alike, some in varying shades of decay, others looking like new.
The Other Thing — It’s called The Crescent City, The Big Easy, Nawlins, NOLA and The City That Care Forgot. Whatever you call it, this city is one of a kind!

If I close my eyes and click my heels I can be there. It is truly the Big Easy.

Nice entry – my son used to live in that area (now he’s downtown in a high-rise) – one of my favorite parts of the city. I’m particularly fascinated by the updated shotgun houses – an old, traditional design that is used to beat the heat (as much as possible).
Thanks for sharing.
