"Jackson Square" Jackson Square Tip by Ewingjr98
Jackson Square, New Orleans: 57 reviews and 117 photos
Originally a military parade ground known as the Place D'Arms, Jackson Square is the heart of the French Quarter. The focus of the square is the equestrian statue of Battle of New Orleans hero and former President Andrew Jackson. To the north of the square is Saint Louis Cathedral and the governor's mansion, and on either side of the square are pedestrian-only areas reserved for vendors and a very large number of punk psychics. Decatur Street lies south of the square along the Mississippi River and the Washington Artillery Park overlook--a great spot for people watching.
Address: Plaza de Armas
Directions: between Decatur and Chartres Sts.
