Accross from the cathedral, this square is a good place to walk around and read everything that is posted. The monument is dedicated to Andrew Jackson. Nice kept gardens. And it's surrounded by great buildings and antique shops.

A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great
story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs
across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied
around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively
well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the
