CITY-WIDE — Think you live in the best neighborhood in New Orleans? Tell us all about it. The Curbed Cup, a bracket-style tourney for the Neighborhood Of The Year award, will be happening in New Orleans for the very first time. From restaurant and bar openings to the hottest shops to the best housing options, tell us where the action is.

MID-CITY — Check out this meticulously renovated vintage gas station from 1918. A local artist nabbed the property for $120,000 back in 2003, gave it a complete makeover, and it's now listed on Airbnb for $400 a night.

UPTOWN — Sure, a bit of neighborhood beef was involved in the planning process of transforming an abandoned Laurel Street firehouse into Engine 37, a coffee shop and apartments. But City Council just gave the A-OK for plans to move forward. Read all about it here.

FRENCH QUARTER — Take a look at this 2,444-square foot home from the 1840s, on the market for the first time in 50 years. Asking price: $839,000.
