Magazine, the street

Magazine Street has become more popular than ever in New Orleans -- in great part because it was a commercial street that was spared the worst ravages of the hurricane. It runs parallel to the river -- an area that is one of the highest in town. In fact, the Magazine and the 10 or so streets that parallel it along the river have earned the monicker "the sliver on the river" because live goes mostly that same as before the hurricane (maybe a little busier).
It is mostly small shops -- antiques, boutiques, house furnishings etc. and small restaurants. A very popular place for a day of shopping and night of eating and visiting.
It cuts through several of the old towns that are now New Orleans: Carollton, Jefferson City.

Take a stroll. You'll find something to your fancy.

Huh? I meant: Hey! Those lamps....

Seems like an area with the right mixture - upscale but with that New Orleans' funky spice added ;-)

Together the pictures give the impression of an interesting place to explore.
Great shots.

Magazine Street is a fun place to hang out on a Saturday afternoon. I hope more people get a chance to discover it.

I'm more than pleased to see your hopeful posts about New Orleans. I grieve with its citizens for the destruction caused by the hurricane. Love the lamps photo and I've already viewed the greeting card of sally's which was inspired by your photo!

I like the tight crop on the top picture of the lamp shades Steve. Just right for impact!

I'm tracking the Great north Dog walk this week.
