Downtown New Orleans

Recommended Posts

It took me awhile to post these pictures, but here they are. :)

I was only able get around lower downtown because of the complete overhaul of the sidewalk system on Canal Street, and upper sections of Poydras Street, which is a great project that was very necessary. Though I also have some shots from Poydras Stree. Enjoy :D

The now famous Industrial Canal

^Thanks everyone!

Nice pics Nate. Did you go back recently or are these from your previous trip?

Those are from my previous trip. I haven't had much time recently to just walk around the city and take pictures, but I'm planning on taking more pics soon. :)
