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.

Though Algiers is known for its Victorian homes, it also offers modern homes. The Lower Algiers area, for instance, features suburban homes with large lots and properties on the golf course.
