When residents refer to "Uptown," they are usually talking about a large area "up" the Mississippi River from the rest of New Orleans. The area starts at a large bend in the Mississippi River and includes the neighborhoods of Riverside, Black Pearl, Carrollton, and Broadmoor. The actual Uptown New Orleans Historic District is south of the Freret neighborhood, extending south to Magazine Street and between Jefferson Avenue and Napoleon Avenue.

With beautiful 19th-century homes and a fascinating collection of locally-owned shops, boutiques, restaurants, and cafes, Uptown is more like a self-contained village than a neighborhood. It is home to Tulane University and Loyola University, as well as the vast Audubon Park. Uptown is one of the oldest sections of New Orleans, with the land granted to Governor Jean Baptiste LeMoyne in 1719.

The mansions along St. Charles Avenue and the sculpted live oak trees help make this one of the most spectacular drives in the country. Some of the mansions here include the Wedding Cake House, a Victorian home built in 1896; the Elms Mansion, built in 1869; and the Diocesan House, completed in 1857 by famous architect James Gallier, Jr.

History

The most-loved features of the south -- the elegant mansions, the sculptured canopy of live oaks, the Southern hospitality, the Victorian cottages with lacy trim -- define Uptown. This fantastic destination began as plantations during the Colonial period. Eventually, they were subdivided into smaller plantations. Finally, after the Louisiana Purchase, some residents of New Orleans decided to head "up" the river, and the community of Uptown began to grow at a rapid pace.

The Uptown New Orleans Historic District is one of several in the small area. Carrollton, the Garden District, Central City, the Irish Channel, and the Lower Garden District are all listed as National Historic Districts.

Many famous people have called Uptown home, including Harry Connick, Jr., Louis Armstrong, Buddy Bolden, author Anne Rice, Lil Wayne, and football stars Drew Brees, Peyton Manning, and Eli Manning.

Cost

Home to one of the nation's most scenic drives -- St. Charles Avenue -- not to mention the beautiful historic mansions, the golf course, and the proximity to Audubon Park and Tulane University, living in Uptown will cost more than most New Orleans neighborhoods. An apartment in Uptown averages about $939, while the New Orleans average is $764.

Major employers in the Uptown area include Tulane University, Loyola University New Orleans, and Children's Hospital New Orleans. Residents also commute to the nearby Central Business District and other parts of the city.

Parks

Uptown is home to one of New Orleans' most beloved parks: Audubon Park. This large park features the Audubon Park Golf Course, the Audubon Zoo, and the Butterfly Park. It also includes a 1.8-mile jogging path, a playground, tennis courts, soccer fields, riding stables, a swimming pool, picnic areas, and the Audubon Clubhouse Cafe. The zoo offers award-winning exhibits, educational programs, and animals from around the world that include orangutans, whooping cranes, Amur leopards, white alligators, and a white tiger. Bird Island, home to a variety of birds for more than a century, is a terrific destination for bird-watchers. The island, located in the Audubon Park Lagoon, is home to egrets, herons, cormorants, and more.

Transportation

The St. Charles Avenue streetcar line opened in 1835, making this historic streetcar line the oldest continuously-operating streetcar line in the world. It is also quite busy, popular with both residents and tourists. Take the streetcar to the Central Business District and the French Quarter. Bus stops are also located throughout the area, especially along Magazine Street and Tchoupitoulas Street.

If you prefer to drive, South Claiborne Avenue and St. Charles Avenue are the main roadways through Uptown. Clairborne Avenue leads to I-10 for longer commutes.
