MY NEW ORLEANS

I think the first time anyone, from anywhere, sees New Orleans’s French Quarter, it steals their heart. Yes, the city is known for Mardi Gras, world-class chefs and restaurants, legendary jazz artists, and nearly four centuries of architecture, but there is something about the Quarter that is like no other place. And if you have a creative spirit, the city will awaken it, nurture it.

 Today, after living in New Orleans for more than twenty-five years, I believe this city is better than ever for both travelers and residents. With all of the start-ups and young people arriving, there’s a tremendously exciting new energy. In addition, the film industry is thriving. I stood in line behind Leonardo DiCaprio at the St. James Cheese Company, and now I understand he plans to move here, too. Beyonce and Jay Z bought a home in the Garden District.
