French Quarter

Today, the French Quarter is a well known and a place to be in New Orleans. It all started in the 18th century when the French Quarter began to build itself up by the Spanish, who were in control of the city at the time. However, later on, in the 19th century, the French Quarter was very different from how we know it today. In the late 1800's the Quarter was in decline. It became a havent to immigrants from southern Italy and Ireland. In fact, it took on the name of "Irish Channel". The area continued to decline in the 1900's, even closing down a section of the Quarter due to prostitution in the surroundings areas. All in all, the French Quarter was not a place to be in the 19th century.
