We spent a rainy morning happily at Maple Street Bookstore. This shop is a New Orleans gem, a fantastic place to find Louisiana fiction and nonfiction, as well as current best sellers and past ones. We joked about needing additional luggage for our purchases....the suitcases were certainly heavier on the way home. The staff is knowledgeable and justifiably proud of... More

I told myself I wouldn't go broke in a bookstore during my latest trip to New Orleans ... and then I found Maple Street. The twin shops -- one for used and rare books, one for new books -- are in old houses and thus already feel homey, but when a gentleman at the new bookstore said there were brownies... More

For quite a long time the Maple Street Book Shop has been a favorite of locals offering friendly service, and is one of the best kept secrets of the University section of Uptown New Orleans. Located in an old house on Maple Street, you can get your reading needs taken care of while enjoying the charm of the shop.

Staying in Uptown / Carrollton

Neighbourhood Profile
Uptown / Carrollton
Very much their own self sufficient unit within the greater metro area, Uptown and Carrollton tone down the urban edge with a friendly attitude and collegiate feel. Home to Tulane and Loyola Universities, all the students living in the area ensure that Uptown and Carrollton stay youthful, cosmopolitan and vibrantly fun. Two of the liveliest thoroughfares for nightlife and socializing (and yes of course more of the city’s outstandingly good food and live music) are Oak Street and Maple Street. For a truly wild time, the expansive acreage of Audubon Park, with its zoo, golf course, and actual patches of swampy wetlands, means peace and quiet are never too far away.
