When it comes to neighborhoods that get compared to Mayberry USA, Algiers Point definitely sits at the top of the list in New Orleans. It’s a wonderful mix of old and new. Historic homes and modern construction. Neighborhood playgrounds and corner dive bars. Annual street parties and kid parades. A place where you know who lives on your block, you watch out for your neighbors, and you lift a pint or a glass together on Friday evenings.
It’s home to the Algiers Ferry that takes pedestrians right to the foot of Canal Street. It’s where you’ll find an old fashioned courthouse that allows you to take care of city business without being forced to cross the bridge. It’s the sounds of the church bells from Holy Name of Mary on the hour. Or the calliope tunes as the paddleboats sail by on the river. Algiers Point is the best of a small town mixed with the best New Orleans has to offer just minutes away.
