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.

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.
