Some of the oldest house in New Orleans are located in the Marigny, dating back to the early 1700's. Easy walking from the French Quarter and gorgeous architecture. Visit this area for great photo opportunities and converse with the people that live there. Step into a cool bar and have a drink or coffee. Enjoy.

This neighborhood is up and coming, and contains Frenchman Street - the best live music in the Big Easy. What's not to love?

Adjacent to the French Quarter, but with the feel of a local area, this is a very good place for food entertainment and during the day, fabulous buildings and all in all The Big Easy!

This is a great neighborhood. Close the French Quarter, but quiet and charming. Wonderful historic buildings, sweet little cafes, friendly neighborhood bars. Overall a great place to stay.

Nice and quiet local neighborhood. What a great place to look at the vintage Louisiana residential architecture. Browse the streets and meet many of the locals. Some of the best local grub can be found here as well.

It is not as old as the French quarter, but is very interesting. It is just on the other side of Esplanade, which is the edge of the french quarter opposite of Canal Blvd. There are quite a few good restaurants that are very reasonably priced. Frenchman Street is the place to go for "real" current New Orleans music. to... More

We stayed in a holiday rental in the Faubourg Marigny area- just on the edge of the French Quarter. It's an area of "elegant decay". The buildings are being refurbished slowly and the locals are absolutely lovely but be cautious at night. Take a cab home from wherever you have been and you will be alright. It's prudent to be...

Just on the other side of the French Quarter, near the French Market and passed Esplanade is an old neighborhood called Faubourg Marigny.

This is an area of New Orleans that has really improved since 2005. Beside Frenchman St at night there are several little cafés and coffee houses, B&B's etc. little shops and stores. Nice homes very relaxing strolling through the area in the daytime. It's just a short walk from the French Quarter.
