Homes on Bourbon Street in New Orleans….

Sunday, July 20th, 2014

Bourbon Street and Gov. Nicholls      Homes on Bourbon Street in New Orleans.  Yes, there is more than bars and night clubs on Bourbon Street.  You walk from a busy busy party and right down the block you enter a residential area that is always pretty quiet.  The homes are historic and some of the cutest in the French Quarter….

Neighborhood Streets in the French Quarter- Balconies, Wrought Iron, Ferns, French Doors and a Little Humidity…

           Always a wonderful and delightful walk on a Fall day is to Wander and Wonder  about the neighborhood streets of New Orleans.  A lot to take in so photos are the only way to remember all the details that one may see.  That goes for Historic Buildings and People as well.  The hanging baskets and plants were very beautiful this week.  They do take a lot of time, care and patience to keep in such shape. All these owners deserve a gold star for their effort.  

Creole Cottages were among the first homes built in the Crescent City

Thursday, September 13th, 2012

     The Creole Cottages of New Orleans were among the early styles of homes in New Orleans.  The French Quarter and the Marginy are the most common locations of this early style dating from the 1790’s to the 1840’s.   The brick masonry construction was covered with cement stucco.  Shutters were used on all openings, most likely for light and ventilation.  The roof dormers were used for light and air circulation as these attic spaces were often used as bedrooms.  They all had very similar floor plans.

      Getting to try out my new camera this weekend in the French Quarter of New Orleans.  I am always amazed at the number of visitors we have in town each week during the steamy Summer days.  Great place to get some quiet spots and photos on even a busy day.   There is remodeling on almost every block in the Quarter as well.  Many of the Streets are going to be replaced in the upcoming year.

       Wonderful Artwork by Brandon K. Jenkins in Jackson Square.  You can always find a lot of cool artwork around the square.  This one of the best.  Maybe you should get one for your home or office.  The more I look it the more I think about going bck and purchasing one.



Esplanade Avenue Home in Bloom for Mid-March, Appreciate this Street New Orleans….

Wednesday, March 14th, 2012

     Another great home on Esplanade Avenue Home in Bloom this week in the New Orleans French Quarter.  This could be one of the most under appreciated Streets in New Olreans.  It runs from the Mississippi River and is the boundary between the Quarter and the Marginy as it begins its journey towards City Park. A lot of history and photos on this street.  Will be busy soon as the Crescent City Classic uses it for a good portion  of the race.

Balconies on Esplanade in the French Quarter of New Orleans….

       Great colors from this historic home on the corner of Esplanade in the French Quarter.  The balconies and ferns combine to give this clorful building the New Orleans feel.  Add in dark green shutters, wrought iron balconies and large windows that you open and step out and enjoy a Spring morning in the Quarter. I would believe they have a sprinkler system for all these plants.

Creole Cottage in French Quarter of New Orleans, Residential area of the Quarter…

Monday, March 14th, 2011

         New Orleans French Quarter is much more than Bourbon Street and Jackson Square.  Its like taking a walking tour of history as you can walk street by street and always see something new.  The best time of year to do that is beetween now and the first week of June before the waves of humidity hit our air.  Remember to bring your camera and look for the details.  Easily over 100 years old.  The Creole Cottages date to the period between 1820 and 1840.  The double shotguns came later in history.

Gallier House Details in New Orleans French Quarter

         Lots of details in the Gallier House located on Royal Street in the New Orleans French Quarter.  Built in 1857 it has so many details you just have yto look at the photos to get a true picture.  Notice the monkey molding as you will rarely see that again in New Orleans.  Its a museum in itself.

Barracks Street Favorite, French Quarter Homes

      I have always liked this house on Barracks in the New Orleans French Quarter.  The owner always has some great hanging baskets.  The colors just seem to fit into the theme.  It directly across the street from the dog park or Cabrini  Park.  You can always see more if walk the more residentail areas of the French Quarter.
