What is special about Royal Street

The street begins on Canal Street and then passes through the French Quarter, Faubourg Marigny, Bywater and Lower Ninth Ward.

Part of the street in the upper French Quarter is known for its antique shops and art galleries. Prices in these stores are usually high - this is one of the most expensive places in the world. Shops sell not just old items, but also such a rarity as exquisite furniture belonging to the royal power of past centuries.

Every day, the three quarters of Royal Street between St. Louis and St. Ann Street are closed to car traffic to create a pedestrian zone. At this time, there are numerous street festivals. In the vicinity you can hear outstanding contemporary musicians.

Despite the disastrous consequences of Hurricane Katrina in 2005 in much of New Orleans, the devastation bypassed Royal Street because of its high location.
