The Rusty Rainbow
Some classics are old, and others new, and this addition to the city, in Crescent Park, is surely destined for legend, especially in the eyes of those who reside in the Marigny or Bywater. There are some great spots in town to get a lovely view of the grand Mississippi River (Waldenberg Park, particularly), but this has fast become a popular one for locals, and a grateful addition to the town. Also, it’s really fun to say aloud, and vaguely filthy-sounding, which we love in New Orleans.
