Carondelet

Update: I revisited St. Boniface in December of 2020.

Punctuated by churches throughout the neighborhood, Carondelet remains one of the most intact and stable areas of the city.

Churches range in style, from simple Gothic Revival to more elaborate styles.

Update: I looked at the houses above again in the winter of 2021.

It’s clich?, but Carondelet really does feel like its own separate city, with the obvious note that it once was until I believe the 1870’s.

Update: I went back and photographed the building above in the winter of 2021. I went back and photographed the house below in March of 2021 (fifth and six photos).

It seems like every architectural style in the city can be found on every block, unlike the rest of the city where you tend to find a more homogeneous, if still beautiful, streetscape.

The Italianate house above sits just down the street from the more sturdy and square shotgun house below.

The street wall undulates back and forth, as different eras and attitudes about the proper distance from the street mix together in a strangely harmonious manner.

    This is one of my favorite areas to putter along on my scooter. I suspect it is for the reason you noted, "It seems like every architectural style in the city can be found on every block."Great photos.Thanks for the share.
