In the 19th century, Marigny was the old Third Municipality of New Orleans. The triangular area between Esplanade and Elysian Fields Avenue is sometimes called 'The Marigny Triangle', and is part of the 7th Ward of New Orleans. The remainder is in the 8th Ward of New Orleans, unless one counts the three blocks between Franklin and Press, which would extend Marigny into the 9th Ward as well.
More History: The Marigny was laid out in the first decade of the 19th century by eccentric Creole millionaire developer Bernard Xavier Philippe de Marigny de Mandeville on land that had been his family plantation just down river from the old city limits of New Orleans. The portion of Marigny closer to the river was built up first; the area on the side of St. Claude Avenue (formerly 'Goodchildren Street') away from the river was sometimes called 'New Marigny.' In the early 19th century, New Marigny was where white Creole gentlemen set up households for their mistresses of color (and their offspring) in the tradition of 'plaçage.'
Wide Elysian Fields Avenue, named after the Champs-Élysées in Paris, was designed to be the main street of the Faubourg Marigny. It was the first street in New Orleans to extend all the way from the riverfront straight to Lake Pontchartrain 8 km (5 miles) away. In 1830-31 the Pontchartrain Railroad was built with tracks down the center of Elysian Fields.

New Orleans City Blocks are short blocks not like big city blocks. Making a right out our from our gate you would make a right go down three blocks right at Washington Square (Small Park) to Royal Street, walk another two blocks and you’ll be in the French Quarter. We also like to point that making a right on Royal St. (three blocks)and make a left on the first street Frenchman St. This area is where there are many supper clubs, Jazz Clubs, shops and more. Continue down Frenchman St. and it turns left onto Decatur Street; the bottom section of the French Quarter – down Decatur St. is many restaurants, Shops of sorts. At the end of Decatur is Harrah Casino.
Taking the street car ends at the Convention Center. You can get off at the Canal St. stop and visit I-Max, aquarium, and insectariums and other very interesting things to see and do.
Making a left out our main gate four doors down you’ll find a Daiquiri Shop, a PoBoy Shop and right across the street is a Walgreen’s. This Walgreen’s sells beer, wine and liquor very rare for Walgreens.
This house is amazing. Its so close to everything in the French Quarter. David, the home owner, was the easist person to work with. He always followed up and returned calls. He even went out of the way to make sure we were accomedated for an early arrival. The place was clean. If i had to knit-pick...it could use some updated beds. We had a group of 8 stay for a surprise 30th Bday. Close to walking distance to Bourban St, French Market, etc. 20min ride from MSY. I would really give this cozy little 1800's home a try!!!
THE ROOMS WERE NICE AND CLEAN. WE WOUD STAY THERE ON OUR NEXT VISIT. THE MANAGER WAS ALWAYS AVAILABLE. CLOSE TO THE FRENCH QUARTER, CLUBS AND RESTRURANTS.
NEW ORLEANS HALOOWEEN WAS GREAT!!
This was very nice place to stay with my wife’s and her parents. We had lots of privacy in the rear of the house near the hot tub. Close to all the restaurants, the River is a few blocks away. French Market was great, we treated ourselves to Tujague’s Restaurants on Decanter - best.
Anyone looking for a great vacation GO TO NEW ORLEANS!!
Me and my husband and our two daughters loved this little guest house. Close to the French Quarter and lots of restaurants nearby. The French Quarter is very old; most homes were built in the 1800’s. We took a buggy ride around the Quarter – a very nice experience for the kids – us too. This being our first time in New Orleans we know we’ll be back.
