I have been a French Quarter resident for 10 years and even though I have visited more than 40 countries - there is no place like home. I really want people to know the Quarter is a place where real people live. It's a place where misfits from all over come and find each other. We take care of each other, we are family. I wanted to show folks a very typical day in the quarter. Here's what I saw outside my door Monday, September 30.
