New Orleans' Uptown Neighborhood

     New Orleans has many neighborhoods, Garden District, French Quarter, Marigny; but one of the most welcoming and inviting is "Uptown."  Here a diverse collection of architectural styles abound.  They are home to those New Orleans inhabitants who lovingly care for their late Victorian charmers.  Every pillar, bow window, and wrought iron railing is preserved.  Many sustained extensive damage during Katrina, but the owners worked hard and brought them back to their original Southern grace.

     These are homes to families, not the super rich who drop by occasionally.  If to spend a couple of delightful hours, take a stroll through this neighborhood some late Sunday afternoon.  You will be thoroughly entertained!

    This painting, "Uptown Tonight" was commissioned by the Ruth's Chris Steakhouse in Richmond Virginia.
