About Bruce Blew
Hello! My name is Bruce. Welcome to New Orleans. I am a retired Chemical Engineer, who presently owns & operates The Junque Shop Antique Store in the Faugborg Marigny, at the base of world famous Frenchmen Street. I personally renovated my home in 2005-2006.
Bruce Blew purchased this House in 2005
Why Bruce Blew chose Algiers Point
This is a Raised 'Shotgun' Double built in 1929, completely renovated in 2005-2006. It is located in historic Algiers Point, the second oldest settlement in New Orleans. It was built by a lumber yard owner. The walls are 6 inches thick & reinforced diagonally. The 2006 renovation opened the home to one living area upstairs.
What makes this House unique
My home is an economical alternative to the French Quarter, and yet is just a four block walk or drive to the Algiers/Canal Street Car/Passenger Ferry. Historic Algiers Point is a quiet alternative to the fast French Quarter pace, and yet close enough to enjoy the full benefits of the French Quarter and all of New Orleans.

We loved the house! It is in a great little neighborhood with friendly people. We ate at some local places for meals and traveled to the French Quarter everyday day pretty quickly across the ferry which is a very short walk away. Once we parked on Thursday we did not have to drive any where until we left today. The inside of the house is spacious and clean, and for a family or groups meeting up it is perfect. We had a great time and Bruce was a great host.
Our family of 6 absolutely loved the house. It was immaculate with a great kitchen. We ate in for several meals and enjoyed some relaxing time together. Even played cards and spent evening time on the front porch. The neighborhood was quiet with a great breakfast spot and neighborhood bars close.
Bruce was very attentive to our needs and ensuring our stay went well. We definitely recommend staying here as it is a welcome break from crazy New Orleans. We took the ferry several times which was a great way to travel.
Thanks Bruce for a great time!!
Thank you so much!
The owner was awesome. The property was exactly like I had anticipated. I feel like we went back in time to old New Orleans. Quiet and very relaxing! Easy Uber ride to anything you want to do.

Thank you so much for leaving your the house so clean. Please come back.
My home is a four (4) block walk or drive to the Algier's Point/Canal Street Ferry. A five minute ferry ride to The base of the French Quarter leaves you by Harrah's Casino, Riverwalk Mall, Canal Mall & Cinema, and a short walk to all of the French Quarter.
