What people are saying:

Jackson Square, the central and most quintessential place for New Orleans' travel, is located in the French section of New Orleans, Louisiana, mimicking Paris's famous Place des Vosges. The surrounding streets of Decatur, St Peter, St Anne and Chartres were designated as national historical landmarks in 1960, one of New Orleans' most famous squares. One must go to New Orleans is Jackson Square, the heart of the French Community. The square is not big, but it is a place where street artists have gathered for half a century, playing, juggling, and dressing strangely and unusually for a soothsayer and oil painter. The plaza, named after General Andrew Jackson, who became the seventh president of the United States, has been standing in the center of the plaza. Just north of the square is St. Louis' Cathedral and south-east of the world's cafe du monde, which has been around for over 200 years. From the park south is the most famous performance square in the area where street performers perform daily in jazz and humorous rap and so on. Every day, it draws a lot of tourists, and then continues south to the cruise terminal in New Orleans, east of the square is the statue of Joan of Arc, and next to the French market, where there are plenty of seafood restaurants. A little westward is the 300-year-old City Hall, the old Louisiana High Court, the Louisiana Bank, etc. This square was a place where black slaves were publicly executed. It's not New Orleans until Jackson Square.
