As its name suggests, Central City’s location makes it an extremely attractive part of town given its easy access to the Downtown, Uptown, and Mid-City neighborhoods. This community is one of the most historic areas in New Orleans and has recently seen a renaissance comeback making it a great place to call home.
Real Estate in Central City is mostly comprised of small to mid-sized homes. Many of the homes here are shotguns, wooden doubles, and brick multi-level apartment building with traditional Creole elements like ornately-detailed cast-iron gates and windows and small porches.
After Katrina, residents of Central City came together to bring this neighborhood back to its historically prominent roots. This area is home to a growing number of businesses and restaurants as passionate local business owners flock to Oretha Castle Haley Boulevard, a historic street with a long history as a shopping and business hub. Here you’ll find local markets, charter schools, and cultural art centers all aimed at benefiting the current and future residents of this great neighborhood.
