I went this January and my memories remain in about the same order: dirty, smelly, good drinks, strange people, greasy food, beautiful architecture, huge gap between the haves and have-nots.

It felt like a once-great city that's been left to go to waste. Like it's been forgotten and people are beyond caring. The best parts of the trip were going out beyond the city and into where the "people" live. If I were to do it again, I'd stay in the outskirts after a day or two in town.

That being said, I'm aparently in the vast minority. Most people love the place and highly recommend it. It wasn't vaguely sad feeling that the city simply isn't what it used to be in its heyday.

Thanks tway

I will have only 3 or 4 days in New Orleans. probably spend first 2 days around the historic French Quarter and then I'll walk around to see some New Orleans Architecture, old homes and neighborhoods.
