The Westbank

Algiers, Louisiana: The City Within a City

More of a city than a neighborhood, Algiers is a New Orleans community on the west bank of the Mississippi River. It's the closest you can get to the New Orleans of the past; Algiers Point is where you can find colorful Victorian cottages that date back to the 1800s. Home buyers find that Algiers offers a quick commute to downtown New Orleans without all the bustle of the city.
