New Orleans Warehouse District, Italian Plaza another urban niche

     The Italian Piazza is another one of the urban parks or casual niches hidden away in the New Orleans Warehouse District.  Few people know of its existence.  New Orleans today has over 200,000 residents of Italian Heritage who came to America around 1880-1900, adding to our New Orleans cultural gumbo.  The Piazza has the aura of a place in Sicily.  For many in New Orleans, it was designed and forgotten, but now you know!

Italian Plaza Entrance on Poydras

The entrance is on Poydras Street but you cannot even tell what it is from this vantage point.  The entrance to the fountains is where Commerce Street dead-ends.  It right around the corner from Fulton Street and the new Harrah’s Hotel.

The New Orleans Warehouse District is full of niches and its all walking day or nite.  If this were in the French Quarter it would be well known but here its hidden amonung warehouses and hotels.
