New Orleans’ second oldest neighborhood, Algiers Point is populated with turn-of-the-century homes – some dating back to the 1840s. Its quiet 19th century small town atmosphere is far removed from the hustle and bustle of the French Quarter located directly across the Mississippi River. This bucolic community enjoys the same churches, schools, corner groceries, restaurants and neighborhood businesses which have existed for years. The Central Business District is only a ferry ride away making for one of the easiest, leisurely commutes to work each day. algierspoint.org
