French Quarter Wall



The French Quarter of New Orleans is a fascinating area. A tiny, encapsulated region in one of the countries most interesting cities. The City of New Orleans is sinking. every year it falls deeper below sea level. It is doing so at an uneven rate. For the centuries-old buildings that are in the French Quarter these shifts put amazing pressures on the structures as one corner sinks faster than another. In the French Quarter there is no such thing as square and plum. Over its long history the walls have been patched, rebuilt and replaced as the need required and budget allowed.

The result is an architecturally funky and visually fascinating area. You can find a bright, freshly painted and restored shotgun house embellished with Victorian fillagree next to a decrepit and neglected brick pile that has been on the verge of crumbling for the past 100 years.
