Algiers Point New Orleans LA

Algiers Point New Orleans

With the best view of the city skyline, Algiers Point was the second neighborhood established in New Orleans (the French Quarter was the first). Located at a turn in the Mississippi River, the Point has all of the charm and architecture of the Garden District at a fraction of the price.

Walkable and friendly, Algiers Point has an amazing collection of Victorian, Greek Revival and Arts and Crafts inspired architecture, in addition the typical Creole cottages and shotguns.

Civic Organizations

The Algiers Point Association was established in 1972 as a neighborhood civic organization and has taken the lead in creating progress in the community, resulting in the neighborhood being added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1978 and named a Historic District by the city in 1994.
