Bywater statistical area boundaries
Note that these neighborhood statistical area boundaries (which must contain complete Census tracts) may differ slightly from boundaries commonly accepted by residents of the neighborhoods.
Some key differences we know about…
1) The dividing street between St. Claude and Bywater is largely Burgundy (and partially St. Claude).
2) Franklin (rather than Press) divides the Marigny and Bywater.
3) The Desire Development (now The Estates comprised of Abundance Square, Treasure Village, and New Savoy) and Desire Area statistical areas have been combined into one Desire statistical area to align with 2010 Census tract boundaries.

Because many of the neighborhood statistical areas in this district have strange shapes — the “stair-steps” along the St. Roch border and the horseshoe shape of Bywater — it may be valuable to refer to a detailed paper map or an online map when examining these boundaries.
We’ve chosen the neighborhood statistical area boundaries on this web site to organize and present data. They may not match the boundaries of neighborhood associations, redevelopment corridors, commercial subdivisions, planning efforts, or historic districts.
