This is New Orleans.
Lafayette Academy & Ursulines are within walking distance.
Ben Franklin is a straight shot out to the Lake on the University of New Orleans Campus.
Tulane & Loyola are close enough but far enough away for us not to have some of the issues associated with being "too close" to campus related activities. I'm sure you know what I mean.
Transit & Proximty
NorthWest Carrollton is about 15-20 minutes away from everywhere in the city and it's a straight shot to Elmwood in Jefferson.
Earhart quickly gets you to the heart of the New Orlean or Jefferson
Carrollton can get you to Riverbend and St. Charles or to MidCity or City Park
The Carrollton Street Car ends at Claiborne by Palmer Park. There are bus and bike routes available.
I-10 access is nearby and you can take the Vieux Carre or Esplande exits into the Quarter. OR you can drive down Carrollton to Bienville or Orleans and take a right.
We have an active Neighborhood Watch, a good relationship with NOPD and some of the lowest crime in the 2nd district. We monitor crime in the area and post to the blog crimes inside our boundaries.
