Uptown is a relatively high-end area and one of the safest in New Orleans. In Magazine Street you will find many local shops, restaurants, and art galleries, and this part of the city was developed when New Orleans was booming in the 19th century when New Orleans was one of the fastest growing cities in the United States. Uptown’s most visited streets are St. Charles Avenue (famous for its historic streetcar line), Magazine Street, Prytania Street, Freret Street (a symbol of New Orleans’ rebirth after Katrina).
