- Faubourg Marigny ("fauborg" is French for suburb) was developed in the 1800s by Bernard Marigny, a wealthy planter. If you cross Esplanade Avenue from the French Quarter, you will find coffee houses, bookstores, restaurants, and music clubs equal to those found in the neighboring Quarter. Bernard would be proud of all the beautiful greenery found amid this little neighborhood, especially that of the American Aquatic Gardens. On a good weather day it is a nice walk to this commercial nursery. This is a wonderfully relaxing place to observe a variety of grasses, reeds, and water lilies. Several artistic fountains create pleasant water sounds.
