"ST Louis #1" St. Louis Cemetery No. 1 Tip by borange27

St. Louis Cemetery No. 1, New Orleans: 19 reviews and 35 photos

Ok....I am here to post a few simple facts. I get so tired of reading people talk about the safety issues of the cemetary. First fact. There is a review directly below mine that says its seems safe with groups, but she has never been at dawn and at dusk. Want to know why she hasnt been there then? ITS NOT OPEN. It closes at 3pm everyday, 12 on Sundays. You cant go at night. Second fact. Its across the street from the Police station. Third fact. Its always crowded in there and the tour guides are on the lookout for any shady characters. Fourth. Its been almost 6 years since a violent crime happened in the cemetary. There are walking tours, carriage drivers and mules, bus tours...all going in and out. Well, the mules dont, but they sit outside without the driver....no mules have ever been robbed. So by all means, please keep saying its unsafe there. Dont let facts get in your way.
