The votes are in, and it was a close race. Winning the honor of Coolest Neighborhood in the City is… Uptown, according to last week’s Twitter poll. The winner brought in 37% of the votes, while Mid-City was just behind at 33%, nipping at those glamourous Uptown heels. Mid-City, in turn, barely beat out the Bywater, which came in at third place with 27% of the votes. The only neighborhood to come up short (way short!) was the Quarter, with far less than even a quarter of the votes. The iconic French Quarter brought up the rear with a mere 3%. Not a very good showing. And don’t so many folks who aren’t in the know think that the French Quarter is what New Orleans is all about? Please, nobody tell the tourists.
