Treme, New Orleans LA
Treme showed up on the radar for new residents after HBO produced the series with the same name. While the show was as close to the real New Orleans as anything else that's ever been on television, it doesn't hold a candle to the real thing.
The Treme neighborhood is ever evolving and the dreaded G-word (gentrification) has become the reality for many long time residents. As prices in the French Quarter, the Marigny and the Bywater have continued to rise, people are turning to Treme. Investors have been renovating and flipping homes at much higher price points than we've seen in the past, while do-it-yourselfers have tackled bringing back those traditional shotguns and cottages to their former glory, changing the face of the neighborhood.
Take a walk with us through this historic New Orleans neighborhood. Listen to the sounds, see the sights and learn more about how America's oldest African-American community was established.
