How to get to the Wharehouse District/Art District from Bourbon Street?

I will be visiting New Orleans and I will be staying on Bourbon Street. I am flying and not planning on renting a car. Is there a way to get to the Art District without getting a taxi? I don’t even have any idea where is in relation to Bourbon St…Is there a street car that will take me there?
No, not the Garden District. I know the difference. It’s supposed to be close to French Quarter. I just don’t know where…

It’s about 1 mile from the French Quarter to the farther edges of the Warehouse District. Its just past the Central Business District, and is roughly bordered by Poydras Street to Lee Circle, and from the River to St. Charles. There are museums that would probably be considered to be included in the Warehouse or Arts District that are located as close in to the French Quarter as Poydras, which is the first major street past Canal. You can also take the St. Charles streetcar to Julia, which is where most of the main galleries are located.

What hotels on Bourbon Street in New Orleans have rooms with balconies overlooking Bourbon?


The Inn on Bourbon, Bourbon Orleans and Royal Sonesta are the only balconies overlooking bouron street.

The Chateau Sonesta and Astor Crowne Plaza MAY have a room or two with balconies overlooking the 100 block of Bourbon (which isnt that great).
Lafitte Guest House is in the quieter 1000 block and has some balconies.


Treme CoProducer David Mills Dies

The new HBO series the Treme is set in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.  For those that lived it, it is more than a TV show, it is real life.  Nothing brings “real life” home more than death.  I was background (an extra) in a Cafe Du Monde scene for the new HBO series  Treme’ yesterday. So I was there when co-producer David Mills collapsed during filming.  He was taken away by ambulance but we were not really sure what had happened. I just found out he passed away as the result of a brain aneurysm. David Mills was an Emmy-award-winning writer for HBO’s The Wire and co-executive producer of the upcoming drama Treme, set in New Orleans. He was 48 years old.   Rest in peace David.  See the attached article for more info.
