1830 Burgundy Street, is right on the edge of the French Quarter, two blocks from Bourbon Street in  "The Faubourg Marigny" (FAW-borg MER-ih-nee), or usually just Marigny.   It's a hip neighborhood just "below"  the French Quarter. Blair House has been the temporary home to actors, celebrities and their families, while working on movie projects in New Orleans.  It's a short walk to the Cafe du Monde for hot beignets and Creole Cafe au lait. You watch the activity at Jackson Square while savoring your coffee.   The Marigny  has the air of what the French Quarter was a generation or two ago before there was so much tourist development. It has a few small hotels and many bed-and-breakfasts, as well as a number of good restaurants, coffee shops, and music venues. Part of the city's old high ground, it fortunately escaped the worst of the post-Katrina disaster.

Architecturally, the Marigny is known for its many styles of Creole cottages, most of which date to the 19th century. Its "heart" is Washington Square Park (bounded Frenchmen Street, Royal Street, Dauphine Street, and Elysian Fields Avenue). Frenchmen Street is the main nightlife district, with half a dozen live music clubs and just as many restaurants in four short blocks.

Due to its odd shape (following a bend in the Mississippi River), locals often call the area,  the "Marigny triangle."     At Mardi Gras, the Marigny is one of the city's hidden hot spots, popular with locals who enjoy partying in the streets without the drunken frat-boy atmosphere of Bourbon Street. Crowds gather at the corner of Royal and Kerlerec (outside the R-Bar), as well as at the intersection of Royal and Franklin. Elaborate costumes are the order of the day, along with brass bands and many drummers. Two weeks before Mardi Gras, the Marigny is also the starting place for the Krewe du Vieux, a satirical, raunchy parade in 19th-century Carnival style, complete with small floats drawn by krewe members and mules.

 

Known for its bohemian atmosphere, the Marigny is home to many artists and musicians. Among its notable residents are chef Paul Prudhomme, painter James Michalopoulas, and actors Harry Shearer and Jennifer Coolidge, who can be seen around town when they're not working in L.A. Local writers include New Orleans mystery writers Julie Smith and J.M. Redmann, as well as Andrei Codrescu, Michael Swindle, and Kevin Allman.
