Overview of french quarter ('vieux carre'):

The french quarter, also known as the vieux carré, is the oldest neighborhood in the city of new orleans. When new orleans (la nouvelle-orléans in french) was founded in 1718 by jean-baptiste le moyne de bienville, the city was originally centered on the french quarter, or the vieux carré ('old square' in french) as it was known then. While the area is still referred to as the vieux carré by some, it is more commonly known as the french quarter today, or simply 'the quarter.' the district as a whole is a national historic landmark, and contains numerous individual historic buildings. It was affected relatively lightly by hurricane Katrina in 2005, as compared to other areas of the city and the greater region. Near Louis Armstrong New Orleans international airport, Amtrak station, bar/pub.

                      Owner info

                      Why the Owner Chose French Quarter:
                      LOCATION! I can't say it enough. This place is in the heart of all the action. You'll love it. Unlike most French Quarter apartments, the layout of this one is nice and open. The kitchen opens up to the living space and feels open and airy. The bedrooms are independently accessible as well as the bathrooms.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                      On a good day, you'll watch a parade pass by, a brass band getting down or a second-line stroll by. At a bare minimum, you'll enjoy street performers entertaining and playing music all around. This property features an incredible plush COURTYARD, which is great for entertaining or simply relaxing. Nice tables and chairs for everyone to enjoy. BBQ pits and ice chests for communal use. Crawfish boiling equipment available on request. Bike rack in the rear. This property has a quaint STAGE/ALTER set up in the rear courtyard. Have a special occasion? This place is perfect to celebrate. I also am willing to stock your fridge/bar with items of your choosing, for a small fee.
