Night Time in New Orleans on General Pershing Street, Quiet but still colorful

Sunday, November 17th, 2013

General Pershing Home in New Orleans, Purple Nights        I have a condo complex on this street and stopped by the other night to get some night photos of the building.  This gave me a chance to walk the neighborhood and get some shots at night.  You can still see a lot of details and it is still colorful.  The beautiful porches, windows, shutters, stained windows and all the details still shine at night.  The neighborhood is two to three blocks off St. Charles yet you feel like you are in the country.

Magazine Street Salon


      You see a lot of unique stores, shops, and eating establishments that were all once something else.  They just keep getting recycled into something else.  That is part of the charm of most of Magazine Street as it moves from Residential into commercial as it makes it way from Canal Street to Audubon Park. Always interesting shops and Businesses as you can see.  I am sure the colors do get changed over time. Its the New Orleans Way….

New Orleans Homes, Small Corner Cottage


These small homes in Uptown New Orleans almost look too small by today’s standards.  These Homes are in big demand and can be fixed up so nice to look the part of a doll house. The lots are 25′ wide  and people want room on each side so many of the Homes are 10-12 ft wide.   They are often colorful and have nice porches, shutters and unique colors.  Just another example of how New Orleans Homes remain unique.

New Orleans Homes, Love the windows


This is one of my all time favorites for this style of windows.  The attic windows top it off along with the detailed work that been around for over 100 years…..Adding a touch of blue sky just tops it off….

White Lady with Umbrella

    People love to come to New Orleans because we do beat to a different drummer and things are very different.  Lots of walking, talking, eating and drinking.  Music in the street and unique performers can be seen any weekend in the  French Quarter.  Walk Magazine Street to find dozens of unique and great places to eat.  It even works in the Summer Heat…

New Orleans Mansion on Corner in Uptown


New Orleans is an old town for the United States. Most of these Historic Homes were built before cars and did not have large yards.  You begin to find these larger yards and homes to match in Uptown New Orleans Homes that have a lot of character. Shutters and porches give them a New Orleans unlike any other city. Check out how green things are without much watering.  It rains enough for 11 months out of the year…

St. Charles Ave, Yellow and Green Cottage...


As you move down St. Charles Ave towards Carrollton Ave. you are actually moving along a time line of newer and newer homes.  This area was not always part of New Orleans and was developed at a later date than the homes on the Avenue closer to town.  Its the 1890’s to the 1910’s.  The variety is even greater as you begin to have more Victorian Homes, Country Cottages and much more.

The Carrollton Area wa annexed to New Orleans in 1874 but maintained its own identity for much longer with its own shopping areas with a more country feel.  The common thread was the streetcar line that runs along Carrollton Ave. after turning off St. Charles.
