Gentilly Terrace and Gardens
Is a neighborhood in New Orleans which has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Begun in 1909 as a getaway community from the main part of the city, Gentilly Terrace was developed with a unique-to-New Orleans flavor of architecture.
With a mix of California bungalow, English Tudor, and Spanish hacienda styles, the ambiance in the Terrace is a refreshing departure from the din of the city. With a diverse mixture of residential, commercial, and schools Gentilly Terrace and Gardens is an attractive place for all who call it home.

Holiday Decorating Contest
We have new rules regarding the GTGIA holiday decorating contest. First, thanks to all the neighbors who registered, but it was brought to our attention that many neighbors don't get emails so may not be aware of the contest. So, effective immediately, every house in GTGIA is automatically a contestant. We will have a team of judges to review every home on every street and name the top three winners. As previously mentioned, the prizes will be yard signs and bragging rights.
