Little Woods is an urban neighborhood located in New Orleans, Louisiana, and real estate is primarily made up of medium sized three and four bedroom to large four, five or more bedroom single-family homes and other multi-family housing options like condominiums, town homes, duplexes, and apartment. Many of the residences in the Little Woods neighborhood are established, but not old, having been built between 1970 and 1999, while a number of residences were built between 2000 to present day.

Here in the eastern marshes, where for reasons unknown this neighborhood originally gained the name Chef Menteur (“Big Liar”), its scrubby tide-washed vegetation earned it the French name “Petit Bois” – today’s Little Woods neighborhood. Later, when railroads rimmed what’s now New Orleans East, nomenclature derived from train stations, many of which were adjoined by tiny enclaves of fishermen, hunters, gardeners and orchard-growers – places with names like Seabrook, Citrus, Edge Lake, South Point, Lee, Michoud, an outpost called Chef Menteur by Fort Macomb and a deep channel (Rigolets) by Fort Pike. Half these names persist in the lexicon today, though not necessarily at the same spots – testimony to the fluidity and caprice of place identity.

Little Woods has a vacancy rate of nearly 14 percent, which is above average compared to other neighborhoods nationwide. To understand more about this neighborhoods vacancy rate and its effects on your home buying or selling options, consult your real estate agent.

The way a neighborhood looks and feels when you walk or drive around it, from its setting, its buildings, and its flair, can make all the difference when choosing a neighborhood to call home.
