The Fashionable French Quarter by Shern Sharma and Melena Ryzik via The New York Times
“I think the [French] Quarter is a lot more polished to be more accustomed to people from out of town…. There are a lot of art galleries in this area too…This place is super inspiring! There’s all kinds of stuff going on all the time.” – Chelsea Darling
