Welcome to
Algiers Point!


Nestled in the bend in the Mighty Mississippi which gives the Crescent City its name, Algiers Point offers a quiet, small-town feel just across the river from the big city. A designated National Historic District, Algiers Point was the first community founded on the West Bank of New Orleans and features historic homes, quaint businesses and tree-lined streets. Noted throughout the city for its laid-back atmosphere, Algiers Point is conveniently accessed by the Crescent City Connection Bridge and a ferry which runs seven days a week.

It's become a trend in the neighborhood to buy affordable, long-standing homes and refurbish them with modern interiors. This new-old style is catching on and making Algiers Point one of the most exciting places to live and buy property in Greater New Orleans.

Algiers Point is by no means a hub for late night frolicking in the Crescent City, but it has its neighborhood haunts that are beloved by the locals and institutions in the area. The restaurants are diverse and lovably kitsch-the Dry Dock Bar and Cafe is a favorite of ferry commuters and Gulf Pizza is a great place to pick up a slice.
