A Local's Neighborhood
I'm sure I'll catch hell for this, but I call everything from Broadway to the Parish Line below S. Claiborne "Carrollton". Within those boundaries there are many smaller pockets to explore. The St. Charles Streetcar ends, begins, and barrels through the neighborhood along Carrollton Ave. It's home to both Oak and Maple St. commercial corridors with fabulous bike access to both. Carrollton is a quintessential New Orleans neighborhood to me. It's got lots of beautiful old architecture and it's home to many of my favorite scenes and eats: like the Maple Leaf Bar, the vegan ranchero at Live Oak Cafe, and the quite upstairs workspace at Rue de la Course. You'll find me around this neighborhood often and at all times of day or night.
