Pirated space


It is only a block long. But, if bricks could talk. Pirates Alley, in the middle of the French Quarter by St.Louis Cathedral. Pirate's Alley next to the Church? New Orleans.

I like the shot. The flags just makes it work.

Wonderful shot, Steve!

The acoustics are just great there too!
Back in the day that is where they held a thriving black market, right next to da'choich!
A more subtle thing was watching the mafia guys come and go to mass through that door, always the left side in pirates alley.

Of course you know it is a haunted alley, as there lay many souls buried beneath those flagstones and in the garden behind the Cathedral.

Thanks youz,

My wife and I really enjoyed the French/Latin Quarter! Fun to have coffee and benets at Cafe' du Monde! Kind regards from EAGAN daily photo
