Canal Street

Local nameCanal Street
LocationNew Orleans, United States

Canal Street is a major thoroughfare in the city of New Orleans. Forming the upriver boundary of the city's oldest neighborhood, the French Quarter or Vieux Carré, it served historically as the dividing line between the colonial-era city and the newer American Sector, today's Central Business District.

Up until the early 1800s, it was the Creoles who lived in the Vieux Carré. After the Louisiana Purchase, a large influx of other cultures began to find their way into the city via the Mississippi River. A number of Americans from Kentucky and other Midwestern states moved into the city and settled uptown.
