New Orleans French Quarter, Pirates Alley

     Actually there may never have been Pirates here but it makes for a great story.  The street is only a block long and runs from Chartesto Royal Street.  Its a must walk for all.  It was known as Orleans Alley until the 1960’s  when the name was canged.  William Faulkner did live in the yellow house when he wrote his first novel.  Thousand of yarns have not doubt been told on this street Today and Yesterday.

1020 Esplanade Condos, living area, French Quarter condo

     Many times we tend to think of condos as small places and they usually are.  This condo in the New Orleans French Quarter located at 1020 Esplanade#103 is unusual in that  has that big room feel with the high ceilings and a large living area.  Combined with the historical feel you can feel the space open up.  The living area is exceptional in that it has that big feel while leaving many of the historical elements.  This was once a ballroom for the Italian Hall built around 1900.

French Quarter Residental Area, Homes in the French Quarter

     Many think the French Quarter is just full of tourist and bars but there is much more to expore and view.  This is a mistake not to vist these areas.  As you get closer to Esplanade Avenue the Quarter becomes much more residential with home and condos.  As you move towards North Rampart you also see this trend.  Many, many people do not venture far enough to get a different view.   Thus I will give you a few !  You can even find a place to park!!

New Orleans French Quarter Balconies,New Orleans Condos

        The balconies in the New Orleans French Quarter that adorn the historic buildings are also a showcase for those with a green thumb.  A balcony is a porch to the world to show their skills.  This is made possible by plenty of moisture through our humidity and frequent showers.  Freezes are rare occurrences and the sunshine is plentiful.  The growing season is long with the best weather being October to May.  The Mississippi Delta soil is rich in organic materials.  The only rocks that we have are imported from other states and countries.

French Quarter Roof Top Views

       Views from a French Quarter condo that I had listed a couple of years ago.  No tall buildings allowed in this historic district so you can get great views form this fourth floor unit.  The only down fall was the stairs to get up to the penthouse unit.  Great 1880 views once you opened the windows.
