New Orleans - French Quarter: Exchange Place

Exchange Place, or Exchange Passage, conceived by J.N.B. DePouilly in 1837, ran from Iberville to St. Louis to provide a suitable approach to the main entrance of the St. Louis Exchange Hotel. The arched first-floor openings of some of the remaining buildings hint at DePouilly’s plan to bring New Orleans the elegance of the Empire-style row houses in Paris.

    Hey Wally, you sure are thorough, and I really appreciate the great shots and deep details.
    This one-block pedestrian mall is called Exchange Alley by the residents whose addresses are here - though the street signs say Place.
    Residents (offices) include former judge and JazzFest organizer David Oestreicher II, NOTV private tourist in-hotel tv station, JazzTacos, SideBar, and the Pelican Club Restaurant. Oestriecher is also cofounder of www.SculptureForNewOrleans.org
