GUIDE TO NEW ORLEANS
By: Steven P. Unger
|St. Louis Cathedral|
I wrote this article on New Orleans as an homage to one of my favorite cities, one still fresh in my mind and heart after a long-postponed revisit there as an invitee to the Vampire Film Festival's Midsummer Nightmare last year. All of the photos in this article are my own, except for the portrait of the Compte de St. Germain and the two pictures otherwise credited.
Most of the text is a compendium of others' words and research. With apologies to anyone I may have inadvertently left out, my online research for this chapter led me to articles from hubpages.com; Kalila K. Smith (whose Vampire Tour I can recommend from personal experience, see here); NewOrleansGhosts.com; GO NOLA; Brian Harrison; HauntedShreveportBossier.com; and Frommers.com. I've borrowed freely from all of these sources and recommend them highly to those who would like to delve more deeply into the secrets of this unique city.
