French Quarter Condos and Balconies
French Quarter Balconies are one of the most sought out features of condos in the New Orleans French Quarter Condo Market. The numbers do not show up in the square footage prices but they are worth thousands of dollars. Its the feel and views to have a street balcony that tops the list. There are 2 types of balconies...The Gallery and a standard balcony. Many times they are just grouped togeather.
A Gallery is connected to the ground which allows them to be larger and have roofs. They are supported by columns and can be as high as three stories. Just open your window and hop out. Most condo units that face the street do not have doors to get out. Just crawl out the window. Many of the interior balconies do have french doors to exit that over look patios and pools.
I love taking photos of the galleries and balconies. They are terrific for hanging baskets, decorating, getting a lot of natural light inot the unit, getting fresh air in, hearing and see the local street sounds. New Orleans is one of the few places in the United States where balconies and porches are adored and used....
