Faubourg St. John » Map

Map

 

Faubourg St. John, established in 1708, is a neighborhood located just north of Broad Street at the intersection of Orleans Avenue.

 

It is approximately 75 city blocks in area and has an average elevation of about 1 foot above sea level. Not bad when you consider about half of New Orleans is several feet under sea level. More than 4,000 residents call Faubourg St. John home.

One of New Orleans’ finest neighborhoods, Faubourg St. John is famous for its stately trees, abundant parks, spectacular homes, world-class museums, vibrant bayou, excellent restaurants and fine shops throughout the neighborhood especially along its business districts on Ponce de Leon and Broad Streets.

Faubourg St. John contains the full range of residential uses, fun and friendly business districts, office space, a wide range of medical services and a small amount of light industrial property. This full range of land use, plus the economic and ethnic diversity of the neighborhoods’ population qualifies Faubourg St. John as a premier destination.

If you are in any A Zone you are below the Base Flood Elevation and are required to carry flood insurance under the National Flood Insurance Program. The higher the number following the A (It is better to be in A0 than A30) the more likely a property is to flood.

If you are in any V Zone you are below the Base Flood Elevation in a Coastal area and are required to carry flood insurance under the National Flood Insurance Program. The higher the number following the V (It is better to be in V0 than V30) the more likely a property is to flood.

If you are in a B Zone you are above the Base Flood Elevation and are NOT required to carry flood insurance. However, for most homes in Zone B, the annual cost for flood insurance is less than 400 dollars per year.
