Algiers, the West Bank of New Orleans
Algiers is a premier neighborhood within the City of New Orleans, located just across the mighty Mississippi River from the French Quarter and central business district. It borders Jefferson parish to the west, Plaquemines parish to the south, and St. Bernard Parish to the east – also across the Mississippi River.
Algiers is a cultural melting-pot of over 57,000 residents, and is home to historic European-style architecture, rural and suburban lifestyle options, many of New Orleans’ best cultural assets, and a plethora of thriving small businesses. Visitors and residents alike enjoy miles of scenic riverfront, with stunning views of New Orleans from our extensive biking and walking trails.
While Algiers boasts a significant historical role in the development of New Orleans’ centuries of traditions, legacy industries, and unparalleled cultural offerings, this vital district also serves as a place of firsts: first-time homeowners, college students, entrepreneurs and business owners, retirees and young families. It is a place where opportunity is accessible – and realized – whether purchasing a home, launching a business, or engaging in a strong community.
It’s all possible in Algiers.
