The Algiers levee offers superb views across the Mississippi to New Orleans' downtown skyline as well as of St Louis Cathedral. It is popular with joggers, bike-riders and dog-walkers and goes on for miles in both directions, though the views get less scenic as you get further away from the ferry terminal. If you have a bit of time it... More

Have a nice view of the skyline of NOLA, Road is in a very good condition and the lightning in the evening is great (LED-light that is turned brighter when motion is detected). A lot of people that are running from the old NAVI, and great place to use your bicycle. Not so special to drive a large distance to... More

Walk, bike, or run. This is the place. Closest bathroom is at Dry Dock Café. Stop and chat with passers by.

After you get off of the ferry, walk to the right and you will find yourself on the levee. It is a long, concrete promenade, good for walking, running, biking. There are benches where you can sit and look over at the skyline of the city.

Topped by a clean, well-lit, trail with ample seating that attracts locals and visitors who want respite from French Quarter excess and discover what other authentic New Orleans neighborhoods must once have been like. There is a jazz trail with a Louis Armstrong statue and some boat supply yards plus the usually busy river and downtown New Orleans just opposite.... More

Great place to live! Algiers is a break from the le bon temps roule attitude. Good food & drinks. Didn't flood during Katrina, has become a hub for the movie industry.

After some beer at the Old Point Inn, we decide to climb the imposing levee across the street. Why? Because it was there. No other reason. Nice view of New Orleans and the Mississippi River. You can follow it back to the ferry at Algiers Point. As from an earlier review, it is a dog walkers paradise. Did not notice... More

Neighborhood Profile
Algiers
Sitting pretty across the Mississippi River from the rambunctious French Quarter, the Crescent City’s second oldest neighborhood is as historic and as scenic as any – just a lot less showy about it. With its numerous 19th and early 20th century homes and plentiful parks and riverside green space for cycling and walking, subdued and low key Algiers yields the best views of New Orleans and offers a quiet haven from the hustle and bustle in other parts of town. Most of the area’s activity, for visitors anyway, takes place at Algiers Point where the famous Canal Street / Algiers Ferry has been the main attraction since 1827 and is still giving folks one of the best rides in town at very affordable rates. Restaurants, bars and music venues here all but guarantee the utmost of authentic experiences sans any hype or high prices.
