With bayous and canals running through and around the city of New Orleans, it’s not surprising that there are neighborhoods with some fantastic water views. Just on the outskirts of City Park, Bayou St. John winds in front of many homes, providing a picturesque setting that seems out of place in the middle of the city.
How would you like to have this outside of your front door each morning?
Originally a waterway used by Native Americans who settled in the area, Bayou St. John is also rumored to have been the site of some of the voodoo rituals of Marie Laveau, one of the most famous (or infamous) voodoo practitioners in the history of the city.
Just down the road from these lovely homes lies City Park, the New Orleans Museum of Art, a public golf course and more. The bridge in the first photo above is used by local school children to quickly cross back and forth.
Enjoying the pictures? You can see more New Orleans photos that we’ve taken all around the city.
