French Quarter By Mississippi River,NOLA

By
Real Estate Agent with Gardner Realtors, Licensed in La.
The Mississippi River Flows by the 
New Orleans French Quarter
 
    The Reason New Orleans was settled by the French in 1718 was its position and high ground on the Mississippi River. Today it is a must see place and it runs from Elysian Fields to Canal Street with plenty of access fromt he French Quarter.
 
     This first photo is of the setting sun in the early evening. We are looking east but it is the West Bank of New Orleans. The name Crescent City means the Mississippi is making a big curve on its way to the Guld of Mexico.

So beautiful, Eric... I've always loved New Orleans (except maybe for the weather when it gets hot and humid). Hopefully the hurricane they are predicting might hit New Orleans in the next days will pass you by. Stay safe.
