STL DPB On The Road - Neighborhoods of New Orleans

We got off the tourist circuit in New Orleans over the weekend. One stop was a monthly outdoor art market at the corner of Piety and Royal Streets in the Bywater neighborhood. I have no idea what this nearby building once was but it obviously called attention to itself.

New Orleans has the best street names of any city in the US, such as the just-mentioned Piety; several of the Muses, including Erato, Thalia, Melpomene, Terpsichore, Polymnea and Euterpe; Religious; Felicity; Elysian Fields; Treasure; Abundance and, of course, Desire. Oh, and St. Louis Street. This supposed to be a St. Louis blog.

I added several more pictures to my New Orleans set on Flickr yesterday.

TOMORROW: Thursday Arch series.
