About our neighborhood

Fontainebleau is one of New Orleans’ most quiet, safe, and convenient neighborhoods. It is characterized by large canopy trees, generous neutral grounds, a beautiful Beaux Arts entrance, quiet streets, a convenient location, and an old-fashioned neighborhood atmosphere.

Historically, Fontainebleau is one of New Orleans’ newer neighborhoods, with its roots stretching only to the turn of the 20th century. Many of its houses were built during the Craftsman period and reflect California Bungalow, Mission Revival, and Shingle-Style influences. Its charm, quiet, safety, and old-fashioned neighborly atmosphere make it one of New Orleans’ most pleasant neighborhoods.

Located in the Carrollton area near the University Section, Fontainebleau is defined by its central axis of Fontainebleau Drive. It is bounded by Walmsley Avenue, Broadway Street, Claiborne Avenue (Highway 90), and Carrollton Avenue.

Fontainebleau's proximity to major thoroughfares makes it an excellent location for persons who work downtown, at the universities, or in Jefferson Parish. With Claiborne Avenue as one border, Fontainebleau is an easy drive to the Central Business District and the French Quarter. Traveling in the other direction, Claiborne Avenue becomes Jefferson Highway (Highway 90) and is a convenient, pleasant drive to Elmwood (with its stores, restaurants, and movie theaters), Harahan, and River Ridge.

With Carrollton Avenue as another border, Fontainebleau is a short drive to Interstate 10 (and from there to East New Orleans, Metairie, or the West Bank), Mid-City, City Park, and on to the University of New Orleans. Traveling in the other direction on Carrollton Avenue takes you to the RiverBend shopping and dining area, St. Charles Avenue, and Audubon Park. Located near the geographical center of the city, Fontainebleau is half-way to everywhere.
