The Amistad Research Center has a marvelous collection of photographs and manuscripts pertaining mostly to African American history and civil rights. Papers in the collection include those from leaders in business, politics and the arts, as well as from laborers and farmers. Staff there are extremely knowledgable and helpful. The center also has small rotating exhibit space--definitely worth a visit!... More

Staying in Uptown / Carrollton

Neighbourhood Profile
Uptown / Carrollton
Very much their own self sufficient unit within the greater metro area, Uptown and Carrollton tone down the urban edge with a friendly attitude and collegiate feel. Home to Tulane and Loyola Universities, all the students living in the area ensure that Uptown and Carrollton stay youthful, cosmopolitan and vibrantly fun. Two of the liveliest thoroughfares for nightlife and socializing (and yes of course more of the city’s outstandingly good food and live music) are Oak Street and Maple Street. For a truly wild time, the expansive acreage of Audubon Park, with its zoo, golf course, and actual patches of swampy wetlands, means peace and quiet are never too far away.
