The French Quarter, also known as the Vieux Carré, is the oldest neighborhood in the city of New Orleans. New Orleans was founded in 1718 by Jean-Baptiste Le Moyne de Bienville. source: Wikipedia

The district as a whole, bound by Canal Street, Decatur Street, Esplanade Avenue and Rampart Street, is a National Historic Landmark. The French Quarter boasts a storied history of international influence with cultural contributions from the French, Spanish, Italians, Sicilians, Africans, Irish and others – all evident in the development of this global port settlement. source: New Orleans Convention and Visitors Bureau
