USA ~New Orleans-Jackson Square~

Received a really nice streetview and one of the most popular areas in New Orleans. It has been the filming location in many television shows and movies, in Star Trek Deep Space Nine and also in a computergames!

....But sadly enough I found also this on the inernet:The incredible damage from Hurricane Katrina poses a great threat to this long-lived culture. In many cases the poorest residents lived in the lowest parts of the city, and many more of them lost their homes, and in some cases their lives, than the more affluent on higher ground. In many ways the cultural texture of the city was shaped by these people, and if they are not able to return, much will have been lost.

Jackson Square, also known as Place d'Armes, dominated by St Louis Cathedral is a historic park in the French Quarter of New Orleans, Louisiana. It was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1960.
