GoNOLA Neighborhood Guide to Magazine Street
GO NOLA: Paul Broussard
July 28, 2015
There may be no street in New Orleans that better exemplifies all that the city has to offer than Magazine Street: a gorgeous, diverse street where locals live, shop, work, and play. Encompassing at least six distinct neighborhoods (Downtown/CBD, Warehouse District, Lower Garden District, Garden District, Irish Channel, and Uptown) it’s a six-mile journey filled with nearly every type of shop and restaurant and bar imaginable.
Beginning in Downtown New Orleans off of Canal Street, Magazine Street is home to the National World War II Museum at one end, winding leisurely down to the river with Audubon Park (and the entrance to Audubon Zoo) at its other end. We took roughly the same path, heading from the Warehouse District to Uptown: see what we found along the way.
