New Orleans, a European City

Ok, so before you point out that New Orleans is nowhere near Europe, hear me out. While exploring New Orleans, I kept getting the feeling I was somewhere else. It's a city more diverse than I had imagined and certain areas had me feeling more like I was in France, San Francisco or Boswash than Louisiana. You don't have to agree with me, this is just the vibe I got and I thought I'd share with this first thread, thanks for looking!

Originally it was a Spanish settlement. Actually it was French-Spanish-French. The Balconies are more Spanish style.The later buildings are more french.


The French used the place as money to pay for war.

Seems like a great quarter!
