Everyone agrees. Uptown’s got the looks in the family, bless its heart. Those handsome neighborhoods, like the St. Charles Avenue streetcar, trundle upriver, unfolding as a series of distinctive names: Oretha Castle Haley, The Garden District, Irish Channel, Riverside, the Black Pearl, Carrollton. Uptown’s homes -- gleaming white and tiered like wedding cakes or shot-gunned into long, narrow lots – are the place’s glory and sheltered by canopies of leafy green or family trees as branched and blossoming as any ancient magnolia. The air’s opulent with the scent of jasmine and a slower, grander age. Uptown, where white tablecloths still cover two-tops. The waiter knows both your name and your preferences. A gin fizz? The crabmeat salad? Satsuma orange ice cream? They’re all on offer, as are the dazzling array of goods. The smart shops on Oak and Maple, Freret and Magazine, rival anything anywhere else. But this is Uptown, sugar. Once you’re here, there’s no reason – not ever – to leave.

“Won’t bow down. Don’t know how.” A place of pride and refuge for New Orleans’ free people of color who could buy property here, the Faubourg Treme – as far back as its founding in the 18th Century – served as cultural rendezvous between the worlds of white and black while its back streets birthed a music that conquered the world. Bulldozed but not forgotten, the infamous Storyville red-light district flourished in the Treme’s upper stretches while St. Augustine Church remains the centerpiece for the oldest African-American Catholic parish in the country. Jazz today is honored by Armstrong Park, named in tribute to Louis Armstrong and Congo Square – where slaves once gathered to make music. Similar beats are heard today seeping from tiny clubs, booming out in a joyous second line or in the eerie drumming of the skeleton krewe emerging from the Backstreet Museum at dawn Mardi Gras Day to wake the sleeping. “Live!” is their command. And that’s exactly what the Treme always does.

In the Warehouse Arts District it’s 19th century paving stones and 21st Century rooftop swimming pools, grilled Gulf redfish and warm baguettes, a B-17 Flying Fortress called “My Gal Sal”and an African-American self-taught artist named Clementine Hunter. This urbane neighborhood is where New Orleans’ past and present meet up for drinks while the future texts “I’m on my way.” Famed for institutions like the National WWII Museum and the Ogden Museum of Southern Art and events like the First Saturday Julia Street art walk, it also offers smaller delights: Watching young ballerinas en pointe framed in a plate glass window; sharing a pizza beneath the stars or brunching on coconut French toast. Vital and alive, the Warehouse District glows like those old school Edison light bulbs. Delight in the art on its walls and celebrate the life in its streets.

Two gray cats lounge in the blue shade of a front porch. A bust of Elvis sits in a side yard, draped with Mardi Gras beads. Ginger blooms spice the air. You’re in New Orleans, but not the one you might know. In a city of exotic names, the historic neighborhood of Algiers stands apart. Literally. It sits across the Mississippi River, connected to downtown by a ferry line – one of the nation’s oldest. As they have over three centuries running, a boat deposits you on the levee of Algiers Point. Explore. Relax. Its pace may be quiet, but its architecture is not – the wood houses lathed and carved in a variety of Victorian embellishment, shout their individuality. And history: The War of 1812, the Union occupation, an 1895 fire almost leveled it. But back Algiers came to make music. Jazz flourished here with neighborhood artists such as Kid Valentine and Papa Celestine. Algiers still sings its own New Orleans tune. Cross the water and listen.
