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.

a lovely stroll on the West Bank. take a minute on the weekend, and pack a lunch . You can usually listen to terrific music at the Old Point Bar. If not grab a bite to eat at the dry dock cafe

This are is amazing to see. You see the city and lights and just the beauty of the whole place. For the 4th of July they have an awesome concert with local NOLA entertainment.

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

Great quite place, across from the ferry is perfect for the fireworks. The old time houses are beautiful, great place to take a walk on the river during the day.

We sat here for the fourth of July fireworks. It was fun but people say Algiers is a dangerous place to be. The houses there are reallly authentic New Orleans.

I prefer the New Orleans side, but if you are visiting New Orleans you should take the ferry over and look around.

There is a good view of the city from this side of the river, but the walk along the levee doesn't add much to the experience you can get from just riding the ferry across. There is nothing along the levee except some houses on one side and a ship repair yard on the other. Nothing is well-kept, and it's... More

I'm stunned to discover that there are already TWO reviews of the Algiers levee. I was sure I'd be first to write about the place. I visited New Orleans in 1997. When I went for a walk on the levee there was no one---tourist or local---in sight. I can remember a restaurant built on pilings in the river, but I... More

I am a new transplant and can tell you that I absolutely LOVE Algiers Point. We are in the process of restoring a double shotgun one block from the levee. The only problem with the levee is the amount of dog feces left on the levee by people who walk their dogs. (And there are a LOT of dogs here.)... More
