Where can I mail something from in the French Quarter?

I need to have some pieces of mail sent out from New Orleans while I’m in the French Quarter. Does anyone know if there’s a USPS mail drop box inside the French Quarter or close to it?

The Loyola St. station is a good bet. If you’re staying at a hotel, check w/ the consierge. They may just send out your mail with theirs. There is a ‘postal’ store on the corner of Bourbon & either Dumaine or St. Philip. I went there back in ’08 when I was staying in NOLA. Good luck!

12 Yats of Christmas

Pre-Katrina, pre-2000s New Orleans culture comes to life in this parody of the classic “Twelve Days of Christmas.” Sadly, practically everything in this video is gone or changed drastically. Most of the businesses, if I’m not mistaken, had disappeared or were sold before my family even moved out of Louisiana in 2000.

Sorry for the mediocre audio/video quality, but the tape is well past its prime as its last recorded program—this sketch—was recorded no later than December 1995 or ’96.

The only thing missing from this is the few opening words—”On the first day of Christmas, my mawmaw gave to me a crawfish they caught…”—but I think the video makes up for it with a nice little surprise at the end.

New Orleans – My Journey Contest Video for Lonely Planet

Lonely Planet author Tom Downs loves New Orleans’ soulful, saucy and eccentric nature. Located as far South as geogrpahically possible in the USA, it’s only mildly American in flavour, more a gumbo of French, Carribbean and African American. Tourists might flock to Bourbon Street’s non-stop carnival but the whole city really knows how to have a great time.
Produced by Lonely Planet.
