I've been looking at craigslist and there are a couple places called the New Marigny... i've heard of Marginy. Any insight on this?

Thank you in advance!

The Marigny is gentrified/expensive/hip. "New Marigny", not so much. It's still a pretty rough area. New Marigny isn't an official neighborhood, but it usually refers to the area between St. Claude Ave and Claiborne from Esplanade down to Press St. The first wave of gentrifiers (aka crusty kids and some hipsters) are trickling across St. Claude near St. Roch, so that part of the neighborhood would be your best bet.

I would still would recommend you look between St. Claude and the river first if you're interested in that part of town.

gentrification brings more amenities, which brings higher incomes...even though its taboo it works

The "new Marigny" is one of those real estate terms conjured up to imply an up-and-coming neighborhood.

New Orleans is undergoing a wave of gentrification right now. Will the "new Marigny" be caught up in that?

It's probably too early to tell.

That name is a totally artificial ploy and I dislike the fact that it's even being used. That neighborhood, which is supposed to be called the Bywater, is coming along I think.

Nah, this is different. It's between St. Claude and Claiborne closer to the Marigny itself. I first heard of it maybe a year ago. There also is now an "Upper Bywater". Hadn't seen that one 'til today, but it's another "hitch yourself to a star" type thing. The Bywater itself is now heavily gentrified... for instance, this:

836 Desire St, New Orleans, LA 70117 - Home For Sale and Real Estate Listing - realtor.com®

for sale by the local affiliate of Sotheby's, $278 (!) psf.

Bywater is a different area.

We're talking about the lake side of St. Claude between Esplanade and Press St. When people say New Marigny, that's usually what they're referring to.

Isn't part of this area already called (or at least designated) St. Roch? This "New Marigny" thing is kind of stupid.

Anyway here are some interesting tid-bits about the supposed "New Marigny".

Brochure for New Marigny (don't know how old this is)
http://www.prcno.org/neighborhoods/b...NewMarigny.pdf

There is even a New Marigny national historic district (yellow part on map, established in 1994).

Good info Jim. Yeah, I think of it as St. Roch. But I don't work for latter and Blum and lease a Lexus.
