Frenchmen Street in New Orleans - Sold

After hurricanes Gustav and Ike, I finally made it to New Orleans to do some more photographing for future paintings. One evening, my husband and I walked from our hotel in the Quarter to Frenchmen Street located in the Faubourg Marigny neighborhood. It's a great section of town, packed with jazz clubs like the Blue Nile, Snug Harbor, and D.B.A.

As we walked down Chartres Street into the Marigny neighborhood, the homes we passed, (mostly shotgun style) looked great in the sunset with their fresh coats of paint and their potted flowers. When we arrived on Frenchmen Street itself I was struck by the fact that it has a glow all its own....nothing like Bourbon Street. It's just a warm friendly spot where you can have some great gumbo and hear some fantastic music.

  1. Wonderful to see the art. If you ever do one of 504 Frenchmen St, I'd be interested :) I used to live in that building. The Marigny is a great neighborhood to live in. I still miss it.

  2. I agree with you about falling in love with the Crescent City - for no particular reason -

    Dave agrees with you about the "glow" on Frenchmen Street

    Is it me, or is there some controversy about the name?

  3. Joe & Dave thanks for dropping by and the nice comments! There's no controversy. I've been pronouncing and spelling this street wrong for years. LOL! (I've fixed it.)
