I take a walk in my neighborhood every evening to look at the amazing residential architecture and neighbors homes. It's such a quaint space in town, not to mention walking Magazine Street or Saint Charles for shops and bars!

The uptown area is a great place to live, work, and study. There are many shops and restaurants to enjoy, with also many quiet streets to live on. Love the uptown area!
It's quiet in certain areas and some are really nice. The streets could be fixed though, and certain neighborhoods should be fixed up a bit more. Also, the fast food places have horrible employees minus Raising Canes and Rallys. There isn't much to do uptown, there aren't many places for teenagers to hang out or really anybody. There are a lot of restaurants and shops though.
