If you’ve lived in New Orleans, you know the city’s slogan, “Proud to call it home.” Nowhere does this saying feel more true than in Mid-City — the colorful and friendly neighborhood in the heart of New Orleans where my daughter and I make our home, and my specialty as a realtor.
Technically, Mid-City is a small area, bounded by Toulouse Street, South Broad Street, I-10, and City Park Avenue, but residents use “Mid-City” to refer to a larger area that shares the neighborhood’s authentic character. While many parts of New Orleans are tourist hubs, Mid-City’s diverse residents tend to be natives or have lived here for years, and businesses, rather than cater to out-of towners, rely almost exclusively on locals.
Since residents can find everything they need within walking distance, they spend a lot of time in the area, get to know their neighbors, become regulars at their favorite hangout spots, and form close communities.
The Mid-City and Bayou St. John neighborhood associations are among the most active in New Orleans and are committed to keeping the neighborhood clean, connected, and safe.
