Welcome to Algiers... Founded in 1718, it's the only part of the city of New Orleans located on the west bank of the Mississippi River.

Algiers - New Orleans

Algiers and Algiers Point are some of the most developed, historic areas on the West Bank, merely a stone's throw across the glorious Mississippi River to the French Quarter and the Central Business District. As the only part of Orleans Parish on the West Bank, Algiers real estate offers a range of affordable properties with styles similar to that of the Uptown area. Algiers homes for sale include everything from sprawling mansions to charming ranch-style homes.

For over 100 years, those looking to buy historic homes have found their place in Algiers Point. Nearest to the levees and right in the bed of the Mississippi, Algiers Point boasts traditional architectural styles and the venerable 200-year-old oak trees that are a signature mark of New Orleans.

Part of Algiers charm is the comfortable, rural feel of the area, even though its merely minutes from New Orleans proper. As one of the areas on the West Bank that is known to be a melting pot of residents, Algiers is home to New Orleans natives, die-hard West Bankers, and many newly relocated young professionals.

Algiers Features

Both Algiers and Algiers Point are notably close-knit communities with lots of pride for their neighborhoods. The community is also rich in history and culture. The headquarters of Blaine Kern's Mardi Gras World can be found here, offering both locals and visitors alike a chance to see the artistic, cultural and economic history of the beloved festival.

Algiers Point became part of the National Register of Historic Places in 1978 and later became a designated local historic district. Many notable jazz musicians are from Algiers, including Red Allen, Emmett Hardy, and Clarence "Frogman" Henry. Residents and visitors can enjoy walking tours of the historical points, cultural spots, and traditional architecture of the nearly 300-year-old neighborhood.

Algiers is so close to the French Quarter that many of the Mardi Gras krewes work on their floats all year long in Algiers, and then store them there in anticipation of the big event. Residents can enjoy attending the festivities, as well as going to many hot night spots, without actually living in the hustle and bustle of the quarter. Algiers is also home to the U.S. Navy regional headquarters and boasts a plethora of neighborhood parks and trails for biking and walking. First-class dining and shopping are available in Algiers and at the nearby French Quarter or neighboring Terrytown, Gretna and Harvey areas.
