The Mid City Neighborhood of New Orleans
Mid City is the heart of New Orleans, the area where locals come when they want to remember what makes this city the generous, pleasure-loving, hard-boiled town that it is. Mid City residences boasting original architectural features, including gas jets, cypress cabinetry, and wide-plank wooden floors, can be purchased for a fraction of the price of similar Uptown properties.
The City Planning Commission defines the boundaries of Mid City as these streets: City Park Avenue, Toulouse Street, North Carrollton Avenue, Orleans Avenues, Bayou St. John, St. Louis Street, North Broad Street and the Pontchartrain Expressway.
The streetcar that linked this part of Canal Street to the Central Business District from 1861 to 1964 has been restored. Its fixed rail lines prove an incentive for more visitors to discover this convenient district in the heart of the city.
