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.
