Wednesday, November 25th, 2015


Uptown Home and Plants

          New Orleans has so many colorful neighborhoods and many more colorful homes and cottages.  These are homes around Laurel Street and Constantinople in Uptown New Orleans. Love the fences and porches on all these homes. Such a variety of colors and styles. There are few that look alike. The colors and plants really set them apart.  Always better to see more with a quick and quiet walk.

Crescent Tittle, Maple Street Nights

 ….Crescent Title now calls this “home” on Maple Street in New Orleans.  I know they have been there for about a year.  It’s a great place to call home for one of the busiest and best  title companies in New Orleans.  It was a real estate office before becoming a title company and getting a total update in 2013.

….People in historic neighborhoods do recycle homes as good as anyone in the United States. I have no idea of what was here many years ago.

Love the Porches in the Uptown Neighborhoods of New Orleans

General Pershing Porch and Shade

    Always a refreshing view.  The variety of styles, colors, and designs are never-ending.  You have to remember that all these homes were built before a/c in a sub tropical climate that New Orleans enjoys.  Porches are for shade and protection of the elements. Rain an Sun.  

    Porches put a “smile” on these historic homes.  People do like to spend time outside and with not much hint of Fall as we enter November you can easily see why.  You get to see a lot of details when you walk these area as I did this past Sunday.

The Craftsman Style, New Orleans Style Double and The Feather Brackets are All “NOLA Unique”

Craftsman Style home in New Orleans

     This beautiful Craftsman Style home with New Orelans Shutters and Windows is “Unique”. Not a combination that you often see in New Orleans Homes. The barckets below that look like a work of art…I just named them NOLA Feather Brackets.  Found them in the Garden District.  The large side hall Uptown double is also unique with a large yard and painted bright and colorful. Generally the idea with doubles was to preserve space. These are my favorites of the week.

Streetcar on Tracks on St. Charles Ave.


The best $1.25 spent in New Orleans could be the streetcar ride.  Why drive when the streetcar can take and you can leave your car at home.  Tourist and locals use them daily.  It just seems so natural they roll down the nuetral  ground on St. Charles as it makes it way from Canal Street to Carrolton Avenue as it makes the turn to Claiborne Ave. These are the green cars that run on this line…

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.

Home among the trees in New Orleans

Could not imagine living in New Orleans with the Summer Heat without the trees or lovely porches that we have. The variety of porches in this town are second to none.  Maybe that is why people here tend to be out going as they are out more…Air Conditioning has changed lifestyles but these porches are like the smile on a home…
