N.O. Street Smarts

papa joesI’ve always been interested in how New Orleans got some of its street names. New Orleans history is also one of my passions, so I felt I should start looking into it and sharing it with other New Orleanians.

Do you know who Claiborne was? How did Canal Street get its name? I certainly asked myself these types of questions long enough. I’m ready to start looking for some answers. Given the eclectic street names in this town, I shouldn’t run out of material any time soon.
