In this magazine you will meet some of the people who actively influence life in the French Quarter, as well as those whose presence simply makes the Vieux Carré more interesting. The Quarter has both small-town and big-city elements. Our goal is to improve the quality of life by banishing isolation and anonymity and promoting pride, awareness, and community identity among the thousands of residents, commuting workers, and returning visitors who make the Vieux Carré a cohesive, vital neighborhood.
