The Garden District is a neighborhood in New Orleans, originally developed between 1832 and 1900. Today, tourists come to the residential area to see the mansions and the lush gardens. When we analyzed 7 952 reviews about the Garden District, we found that while people really liked the restaurants there, visitors were rather bothered with the sidewalks.

What do we base our findings on?

The topic “sidewalks” seems to have a negative impact on the grade, especially when it is mentioned together with “broken” and “tree roots”. It has an average grade that is lower, 4,43 / 5, than the overall average 4,59 / 5. Occurring in 5% of the reviews with, the topic is most commonly associated with the word “uneven” which shows up in almost 30% of the reviews. The topic has been talked about constantly over time, but has been mentioned more in the last few years.
Several reviewers talk about “restaurants” and it seems to have a positive impact on the grade. The topic “restaurants” has an average grade of 4,65 / 5. It is commonly mentioned with words such as “beautiful” and “great”.

Our analysis of 7 952 shows that the sidewalks in this area are in quite a bad condition, making it tricky to walk. The sidewalks are described as uneven and damaged by tree roots. Some reviewers mention that they could not appreciate the beautiful houses because they needed to watch their steps. While the overall grade for the Garden District is high, maintaining that high grade is of interest in order to attract future tourists.

There also seem to be several restaurants and cafes in the area, which are appreciated by visitors. Although a majority of the analyzed reviews come from tourists visiting the neighborhood, it points out some of the important attributes of the area.
