Colorful Homes in Bywater Neighborhood
So Many Doubles Blooming Now
New Orleans, 70117
The colorful homes did not even exist 50 years ago. Most were white with Green Shutters. This was the norm in those days. Starting in the mid 1990’s the artist started living in the area and started to brighten up the neighborhood by making the homes look like works of art. Having gone to high school in the area I remember it well to this day.
Few of the homes have front yards but all have colorful doors, shutters, window frames, brackets, steps and porches that be painted to stand out in the neighborhood. Check out all the colors and the artist features that the Bywater homes have.
More than 50% of the homes in the Bywater were once doubles. Some have been converted into single homes but a lot of double still remain.
