Lower Garden District a neighborhood of the town of New Orleans. A subdistrict of the Central City/Garden District Area, its boundaries as defined by the town committee are: St. Charles Avenue, Felicity, Prytania, Thalia, Magazine, and Julia Streets to the north; the New Orleans Morial Convention Center, Crescent City Connection, and Mississippi to the east; Felicity Street, Magazine Street, Constance Street, Jackson Avenue, Chippewa Street, Soraparu Street, and St. Thomas Street to the south; and 1st Street to the west.
The Lower Garden District is usually confused with its more famous neighbor, the Upper Garden District, but it’s a singular , eclectic flavor all its own. Centered around Coliseum Square, the world is one among graceful vistas and curving streets, replete with classical names like Dryades, Melpomene, and Terpsichore. Indeed, Lee Circle, originally named Tivoli Circle, was envisioned as an anchor for the nine streets that reach from it, all named after the nine muses. the homes here actually predate those of the Garden District proper, since they were inbuilt the first years of the 19th century during the city’s upriver expansion from the French Quarter. Since the world remains within the process of being revitalized, many magnificent homes are often purchased here at reasonable prices, especially for those willing to take a position a touch “sweat equity.”
