The neighborhood is a wonderful, safe area close to restaurants and coffee shops, art markets, farmers markets, and parks. Walking distance to Oak St., Maple St., and Riverbend dining and shopping districts. Close to Tulane, Loyola, and Xavier Universities. On dedicated bicycle lane, too. This is genteel old Uptown New Orleans at its finest! The avenue median ("neutral ground", as we say), is like a linear park running right in front of your residence, popular with joggers, dog-walkers, etc.
