Home to revelry and romance, New Orleans retains an unmistakable sense of itself, an honest, eccentric, deep-feeling city that embraces its ghosts and its newcomers alike.

 

"It is the city’s status as a place that requires explaining, even to Americans, that is responsible for its foreign aura."
