"Let the good times roll in New Orleans, home to Mardi Gras madness, the birthplace of jazz, and one of the most visited cities in America. Discover the extraordinary history and beauty of the Crescent City in New Orleans Then and Now in the exciting new second edition of the best-selling title. Explore the LaBranche buildings in the French Quarter and stroll among the splendorous Greek Revival homes in the Garden District. The tracks for horse-drawn streetcars may be gone, but these elegant structures remain largely unchanged. After more than a century, the French Market remains a hub for residents and visitors. Have a beignet and coffee at world-famous Café du Monde — still open 24/7 after all these years. Come on down to the oldest surviving building on Canal Street. Originally built in 1821, this corner shop was home to the United Cigar Store, a barber shop and shoe repair; today it's a Wendy's."
