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.

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

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

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.
