Just next to French Quarters. Walk around Marigny and along Esplanade Ave to view some colourful buildings. Met the Dancing Man with his very interesting story about second line dancing. Louis Armstrong Park is nice and serene, sit under tree for a picnic lunch. Next to this is Congo Square with lovely huge trees.

We are getting ready to take our 6th trip to New Orleans. We always stay in the Marigny. We love the neighborhood feel, the friendly people, the great places to eat and drink, etc. We don't spend all that much time on Frenchman Street, we hang our mostly on Royal Street, Mandeville, Burgandy and Spain. This is away from the rowdy crowds on Frenchman, but walking distance to it. In the six visits, we have met many of the neighbors who always stop by to talk or have drinks with us on the front porch. Take time to get away from the crowds and see a real NOLA neighborhood, and admire the great variety of architecture.

Best kept secret of New Orleans. New Orleanians know its the place to be. The best music venues can be found here by night, and the home of interesting art festival planted throughout the day. The marigny is the home of quirky neighborhood madness and the infamous Frenchman St., which is the "Bourbon Street" of the locals.

key word... neighborhood.... not much to do here... but plenty to see... and great B&B's to stay in... While you are there, you have to check out Pho King in the Lost Love Lounge, tapas at Mimi's (and that just a great bar all around), and go a few more blocks away from the corner and check out Markey's and The Country Club...

The (Post) Hurricane Katrina Tour was about 2 -3 hours in a shuttle bus (i believe it was operated by Grey Line Tours). We visited Faubourg Marigny, the Lower 9th Ward, Lake Pontchartrain, etc as part of the tour. We saw a number of rebuilding projects and parts still devasted by Katrina. the Tour, though a little expensive in terms of activity fees, was well worth it. It was very good that our tour guide/driver was a native of the area. He added some personal stories relevant to the time before and after Katrina, that just made the tour more interesting and real. Very good tour and good way to see Faubourg Marigny and other parts of New Orleans. Would likely do it again.
