Faubourg Marigny / Bywater
The Faubourg Marigny is a triangular shaped area comprised of a variety of one-story houses in the styles of Late Georgian, Creole, and Greek Revival, the Creole cottage and shotgun cottage being predominant. The area definitely has a strong 19th century flavor. Houses in this area are usually built flush with the front property line leaving small front yards adorned with ornamental cast-iron fences. There are several two and three story structures, most of which line Esplanade Avenue. The large warehouse at Decatur and Marigny may soon be converted into apartments and commercial space.
The area has become an extension of the French Quarter with cafés, restaurants, musical venues, as well as a lively club scene. There are also small businesses, light industry, some large businesses, home businesses and Bed and Breakfasts.
It is a very diverse area that feels like a community with artists, craftspeople, musicians, retirees, young and old, singles and couples, gay and straight.
Bywater, similar to Marigny, is a riverside neighborhood containing mostly one-story shotgun 19th century houses packed closely together.
