Near Audubon Park and bounded by the St. Charles streetcar line, it’s just before the river bend, which is home to a number of restaurants, shops, and bars.

Black Pearl New Orleans Real Estate
The most common architecture found in the Black Pearl neighborhood is raised cottages and camelbacks, condos and a smattering of Victorians thrown in for good measure. Most, but not all, homes have off-street parking in the form of driveways. Don’t expect a garage on any but the most luxurious of homes in the area. Located in a preferred flood zone, the average home has 3 bedrooms, 2.5 baths and around 1,800 square feet of living area. Condos are generally 1-2 bedrooms and under 1,100 square feet of living area.
Narrow (25-35 feet wide), deep lots are the norm, although many times you’ll find a home that sits on a double lot, allowing for a larger house and yard. Many of the homes have had renovations and updates that belie the historic exteriors.
