The area
Neighborhood: Central Business District
Compared to the more evocative monikers of some other parts of New Orleans, the downtown’s humdrum title might suggest that this area is all about business and little else. But don’t let the bland name keep you away from the Central Business District. The CBD offers a wide range of fun things to do that would be touted as exceptional in less jubilant corners of the world. Bordered by the French Quarter, the Arts District and Tremé, with the river at its eastern extreme, this hub for sports, gaming, shopping, theatre, family-friendly activities, and amazing regional cuisine makes a smart base wherever your interests lie.

Julia street has a lot of galleries to visit and peruse through the art work which changes on a regular basis. Each first Saturday of a month the galleries stay open late and some offer free wine and nibbles while you visit. There are also some nice restaurants to try in the area.

Not knowing it was Open Gallery, I walked through Gallery Row during the afternoon, found my favorite painters, and returned that night with my husband for the openings. Callan Contemporary was featuring Michael Kessler, a truly gifted and organic painter and Allison Stewart's large and colorful botanicals were at the Arthur Roger Gallery. Ariodante was the most fun, crowded with an eclectic collection of local artists in multiple media.

Well, I go back with the City, to when Julia St was only lined with wholesalers, ship chandlers, an occasional office building and warehouse – lots of warehouses. Julia St was basically access to the docks, and the Julia St Wharf. However, the wharf was about to be demolished, and most of the buildings in the area vacated, probably leaving them abandoned, or to be demolished to create parking lots. This was a heavily blighted area, with nothing good coming to it, in the foreseeable future.

Then, a group of investors, and civic-minded citizens, had a vision for a complete revitalization of the area. They mounted an awareness campaign, sought and obtained a few federal grants, plus secured other investors, and the rest, as they say, is history. Just look at the place now, and probably the finest example is Julia Row.

We spent quite a bit of time in the Julia St area, and marveled at the development. Way back when, I was part of a photographic exhibition to kick off the development of Julia Street, so am glad that the efforts yielded such an outcome.

This particular development is a lovely example of the re-purposing of vacant commercial properties. It shows how well it can be done.

I only wish that for this visit, the rains were not so heavy, or that we had visited Julia Row on the one sunny day that we had. We will be back (hopefully in better weather), if for no other reason, than to photograph Julia Row properly. I am not sure if any of my images of what existed before survived two “100 Year Floods,” but if so, I will try to match up angles, to do a “before and after.”

Just beautiful, and seeing these structures brightened up my day, and filled me with a tiny sense of pride.

LLove this street in NOLA. Great revitalised influx of wharehouse-turned-condos. Abundance of artists and galleries. Fantastic retaurants. A few little outdoor cafe coffehouses.

This street caters to many travelling in from 'awa'y in the Hollywood crowd shooting films in NOLA. Several of the condo buildings have longer term executive rentals which are let out to those in the industry. Who knows; you could be out for a morning stroll and run in to Sandra Bullock walking over to see a PA, or Brad Pitt and his brood :)

Julia Row refers to the thirteen side-hall row houses on Julia Street between St. Charles Avenue and Camp Street, also known as the Thirteen Sisters. They were originally built in 1833 and became one of the most affluent addresses in the American Sector of New Orleans. But the area declined from the 1850’s as people moved out, primarily to the Garden district, and the properties fell into ruin.
So good to see these red brick houses and the warehouse District in general on the up and back to their original grandeur.

Divide by 13 was a lot harder than most people can do even today, not mentioning you have divide a city block into 13 townhouses. This place is also called Thirteen Sister which 13 townhouses were built along the St Charles Street. When I arrived by 600 Julia Row after a short walk from the WWII museum, it was in the later afternoon, when the sun shines a lazy shadow on the facade of the front of the 13 Sisters. Most shops like the GEGAS Gallery were closed. I walked across the street to admire each of the 13 townhouses, found they were so equally decorated and constructed, had to keep thinking how well they divided the street front by 13.

Plan to spend at least a few hours along Julia Street -- the galleries, the restaurants, and the museums.

Julia Row used to be ramshackle. After the 1984 World's Fair, it became part of the Historic Warehouse District renovation and today houses top restaurants like Emeril's and a plethora of terrific art galleries. It is pleasant to walk and convenient to reach. It lies within walking distance of all kinds of cafes and restaurants.

We took the Riverfront street car to this part of town and had a fun few hours. The galleries are pretty much grouped together, so you didn't have to walk very far in between (get a map from one of the galleries). Owners were friendly and the art was good. Unfortunately, the two art museums we wanted to visit were closed, but next time . . .

Julia Row now appears to be a new and modern block of apartments built on Julia Street. Lots of art galleries in the vicinity.
