Summary

Laissez les bon temps rouler in New Orleans, home to Mardi Gras madness, the birthplace of jazz, and one of the most visited cities in America. Discover the extraordinary history and beauty of the Big Easy in New Orleans Then and Now in the exciting new second edition of the best-selling title. Fascinating then-and-now photographs of key landmarks and locations illustrate how much—and how little—this city has changed over the years. Explore the cast iron lace-draped LaBranche buildings in the French Quarter and stroll among the splendorous Greek Revival homes in the Garden District. The tracks for horse-drawn streetcars may be gone, but these elegant structures remain largely unchanged. Bourbon Street is one of the biggest, most successful entertainment and retail areas in the world, attracting millions of tourists and residents every year. In early days, it was mainly a residential street, but today it's full of revelers. After more than a century, the French Market remains a hub for residents and visitors alike. Have a beignet and coffee at world-famous Café du Monde—still open 24/7 after all these years.
