New Orleans

18 posts in this topic

I spent the day in New Orleans on Saturday for a photo tour of the city, and I thought I'd post them here. I got in early in the morning and started walking around at about 6:15 and at that point there was some action downtown, but it was still early on a Saturday so I wasn't expecting that much to be going on. But later on in the day I was very happy to see just how vibrant the city was. Tourist's were everywhere, musicians and street performers were all around the French Quarter, the Riverfront was packed, Cafe Du Monde was packed, Jackson square was alive with artists and performers, and every store, bar, and restaurant in the French Quarter was full. I talked with a group of tourists from Charlotte visiting New Orleans for the first time on the ferry ride across the Mississippi, and a bus full of Asian tourists was parked along the Riverfront. This was all just fantastic to see, and it seems like the tourists are finally starting to really pour into the city again, and the "Oh no, we can't go there, everything was destroyed, and it all looks the same as it did last August" mentality may be diminishing, which is great for the city in so many ways.

Anyway, here are around 50 of the pictures I took around New Orleans.

WOW ! ;) Truly great shots Nate. Thanks for sharing all of those pics. What a great looking city. New Orleans is an urban oasis. Such variety in architecture both old and new. Very impressive density too. Some of those shots of the urban canyons were suprising as well.

This is certainly the BEAST of New Orleans threads. Awesome, great tour! In this photo, this is the block I stayed in last time I was in New Orleans. I stayed at The International House, which is in the center on the right side of this photo:

Yep, all of these pictures were from my photo tour on Saturday. I took a total of 736 pictures in a little under 10 hours.

Oh no, it's currently recieving a $180+ million renovation, with plans for another $150 million renovation in the near future. It will reopen on September 25 on Monday Night Football for the Saints first game in New Orleans since Katrina, vs the Atlanta Falcons. :thumbsup:
