I was showing a home on Peniston Street this afternoon near Magazine Street. Got there a few minutes early so decide to walk around the block. Its easy to see why people like to shop in the area. All the stores are unique and all the people in the stores are so friendly. In just 3 blocks there is so much variety.
I am selling more condos in these areas as people can do so much just by walking out there door. Its only 5 blocks from St. Charles. That is what many of the second home people I am selling enjoy…Not using the car. They invite friends down for the weekend and they all get out to discover new places to shop, eat, and drink. Its another reason why the condo market in this area has been great for the last two years.
As more people discover all the things to do, I predict it will become even more popular. The prices are much less expensive than the French Quarter and the Warehouse District. You just get more for your money here. The area is so compact its easy to get to all areas of town from here.
Magazine Street extends from Canal Street and runs parallel to St. Charles unit it hits River Road right after going through Audubon Park.
