New Orleans: CBD and French Quarter (Serious 56K Warning)

I brought my camera into the city last weekend for the French Quarter Fest, and came back with quite a few photos from around the Quarter and the CBD. Hope you enjoy!

The first photos were taken in the CBD, from there we'll go throughout the Quarter, back through the CBD, and eventually down to the riverfront.

And now for the photos(it may take awhile to load)...


Some of the major hotels between the lower portions of Canal and Poydras


Downtown Density


Waldenberg Riverfront Park


Vieux Carre


Shops at Canal Place, an upscale downtown mall


One Canal Place


And now into the Quarter...





Jean-Baptiste Le Moyne, Sieur de Bienville, founder of New Orleans


Shops along Decatur Street


Louisiana Supreme Court


Looking back down Chartres Street


Looking up Chartres


Chartres in front of the Saint Louis Cathedral








Art along the Jackson Square fence












Anti-fence jumping mechanism :lol:








Lafitte's Blacksmith Bar, built in 1772








Bourbon Street








New Orleans Musical Legends Park




And now we cross Canal Street into the CBD...


The Ritz-Carlton on Canal






Saint Charles Avenue


One Shell Square, the tallest building in Louisiana(will be topped by Trump N.O. in a few years)










Hyatt Regency, still being repaired and bares scars of Katrina's winds


First Bank and Trust Tower




Palm-lined sidewalk beside Harrah's Casino on Poydras Street


And finally, the riverfront...







That's it! Sorry about the large amount of photos, but I hope you enjoyed them!

Beautiful and very colorful pictures! Great job! It's been a long time since I've been down there. It looks like it's recovering well.

WOW N.O. looks really pretty. I hope they're recovering nicely from Hurricane Katrina.

thanks for the memories! I'm a southern transplant from NO...now living in Boston... ho hum, yawn.....B-O-R-I-N-G! Brings back lots of memories, ones that I would never get away with in the "Puritan State that is Massachusetts"!! Lived there for 12 years, uptown. Good to see that parts of the city (FQ) are still thriving. The city has the most character of any I've ever lived in in the US.
thanks!!

It is...I'm watching it...but, as the saying goes down here..."Katrina has taught me patience." We all feel this way. The rest of the country needs to have patience. We are in virgin territory. Unless I'm mistaken, I don't recall ever hearing about 250,000 urban homes being flooded to the ceiling. It takes time to clean this crap up, but we are making serious headway. I'm dead serious. Come check it out. I just moved into a recovery area (Mid-City) and I love it. Everybody is coming back in this neighborhood. I saw 4 U-Hauls just on my street this past Saturday. They are moving in now....

Not high quality, but, I thought this was a cool pic taken today (05/14/2007) of an afternoon storm in New Orleans:
