I've visited New Orleans three times and i've seen and loved the brightly painted creole cottages. I've ranged as "far" as Audubon Park, City Park, Marigny, the Garden District, Algiers, Canal St., St. Charles St. and Magazine St. in my search for gators in their natural setting, all to no avail.
Sounds like you started getting kinda close to some interesting spots - "A" for effort.
As for gators in the natural setting, you need to actually go to their natural setting - just east of town, to Bayou Sauvage, just south of town, to the Jean Lafitte Preserve, just west of town, out to the Maurepas Swamp, or just north of town, to one of the gator farms. You aren't gonna find 'em in the City, outside of the zoo (and the very rare drifter in bayou st. john).
Good thing too. You wouldn't really want to confront an alligator on your way to the shops in the morning would you?
BTW what are cookie cutter houses?
