Marigny & Bywater

Highlights

The Marigny and Bywater are where old school New Orleans blends with artistic, hip - somewhat Bohemic - styles and culture. While Bywater is a little more funky than Marigny, both have diverse architecture including contemporary, industrial, and charming classic renovated New Orleans cottages.

Both neighborhoods are appealing to young or growing families and entrepreneurs.
