歴史の浅い国アメリカ。
1849年に建設された3階建てのこの建物が、現存するアメリカ最古のアパートだそうだ。
いまでは、1階にはごちゃごちゃといろいろな商業施設が入っている。
3階建ての古い建物はこの一体では少ない。

ジャクソン広場をはさんで東と西に同じタイプの建物がある。
赤い色の細長い建物で、2階と3階のバルコニーはアイアンレースと呼ばれる鉄製のお洒落な囲いで目をひく。
これはニューヨークで作られた物だそう。
内部に使われた物も当時の最新の物でガスや水洗トイレも備わっていたと言うから驚く。
当時から上階はアパートで1階部分は商店などが入っていたとのこと。

These are very old buildings that run down the sides of Jackson Square. The bottom level is all different shops and the upper level is apartments. Worth a look if you are in the square

The buildings are beautiful. We stopped in several of the shops while enjoying the square. There is really no plaque or other historical marker, so unless you have a guidebook or are on a tour, you really don't know the significance of these buildings.

On this lovely December afternoon, we only encountered the Lower Pontalba Building, up close. We had gone in search of a “Champagne bar,” on Rampart St, only to find it closed. We were near the “back of the Quarter,” Esplanade St, so we deviated over to Royal St, for a stroll. At St Ann St, we detoured to Jackson Square and the Washington Military Park, overlooking the Square. We walked through Jackson Square, going, but coming back, paused along the St Ann St “mall,” to browse the shops on the first floor.

In the Winter sunshine, the Lower Pontalba looked as grand, as ever. Most of the upper, residential balconies were adorned with blooms, and a few had already erected some Holiday decorations.

Grand, historic, and so very lovely, these iconic buildings stand in testament, to an earlier, and glorious time in New Orleans. I cannot imagine spending any time in the French Quarter, and not taking the time to admire these structures. I also cannot imagine being in the French Quarter and not stopping into the Tabasco Store, in the Lower Pontalba Building – I almost always find a Tabasco tie, that I did not already own.

While we missed the Upper Pontalba on this stroll, we will definitely include it on our next vist.

It may not be a destination to go to but if you are in Jackson Square, you should look at them. I enjoy unique items that are not like my home City and these truly meet that criteria. Worth the look.

I have always loved, and admired the Pontalba Buildings (both upper and lower), and have had a few acquaintances who have had apartments on the upper floors, over the years. The two identical buildings “bookend the Place d’Armes (French) or Plaza d'Armas (Spanish), known today as Jackson Square. The Upper Pontalba (named for its location upriver) faces St Peter St, and that side of Jackson Square, while the Lower Pontalba Building (because it is the down river of the two) fronts St Ann, and that side of the Square.

Because of their proximity to Jackson Square, essentially the epi-center of the French Quarter, they are often admired and photographed, and their ornate wrought iron framed balconies, and heavy plantings catch almost everyone’s eye.

Nowadays, the buildings probably need to be seen from afar, as the lower levels are almost 100% commercial, and the various signs and facades detract from the integrity of the two buildings. Still, they are lovely to behold, and for me equate to iconic images of the French Quarter. My wife and I spot them instantly in background shots for motion pictures and advertisements. Back in the 1970's I even used the Upper-Pontalba Building as a background for a motion picture that I did. Also, with the number of artists, tarot card readers and street musicians around Jackson Square, with their umbrellas, etc., the views are a bit obscured, or at least restricted.

On this sunny June day, we were just idly walking through the French Quarter, and had time to spend, with no where to go, after crossing Decatur from the Washington Artillery Park. We were able to walk the fronts of both, along St Ann and St Peter Street.

Much had changed, since we last paid a lot of attention – several restaurants and retail shops that we knew, had closed. Others had opened. Now, I did not see one empty store front, and no “for sale,” or “lease” signs, so they must be hot addresses for merchants who appreciate heavy foot traffic.

In the early afternoon sun, they were as lovely as every, especially the second and third floors.

I would urge anyone in the French Quarter, regardless of their interest in history, or architecture, to spend some time just admiring these two structures. It will be time well-spent.

The buildings were built by the Baroness Micaela de Pontalba to surround the Plaza d'Armas (now Jackson Square). They were originally residences of important folks in town; today they are still rented out - but no longer just to aristocracy. The architecture is what sets them apart, especially those on the east side of the square.

This is one of the nicer kept buildings in the French Quarter. While not really worth as a destination you can walk by it on the way to Jackson Square.

It makes for a nice photo.

The Pontalba Buildings are a sought-after address for many of the city residents. They have always been rentals, according to our tour guide. They line Jackson Square and were built during the mid-nineteenth century by the Baroness Micaela Almonester Pontalba. She has a fascinating history of her own. Head to the only one of these buildings that is open for tours (on the same side of Jackson Square as Cafe Du Monde) to see inside one of these gems and learn more about their history.
