The French claimed Louisiana in the 1690s, and Jean Baptiste Le Moyne de Bienville was appointed Director General in charge of developing a colony in the territory. He founded New Orleans in 1718. In 1721, the royal engineer [[Adrien de Pauger]] designed the city’s street layout. He named the streets after French royal houses and Catholic saints. He paid homage to France’s ruling family, the [[House of Bourbon]], with the naming of Bourbon Street.<ref>Ashbury, Herbert. The French Quarter: An Informal History of the New Orleans Underworld.

New Orleans was given to the Spanish in 1763 following the [[Seven Years’ War]]. The [[Great New Orleans Fire (1788)|Great New Orleans Fire of 1788]] destroyed 80 percent of the city’s buildings. The Spanish rebuilt many of the damaged structures, which are still standing today. For this reason, Bourbon Street and the French Quarter display more Spanish than French influence.<ref name=”gonola”>{{Cite web|url=|title=NOLA History: Rue Bourbon Through the Years|date=August 25, 2010|}}</ref>

Following a brief restoration of French rule, the Americans gained control of the colony with the 1803 [[Louisiana Purchase]].<ref name=””>[ Primary Documents in American History – Louisiana Purchase]</ref> They translated the French street names into English, with Rue Bourbon becoming Bourbon Street.<ref name=”gonola” />

During the 19th century, New Orleans was similar to other Southern cities in that its economy was based on selling [[cash crop]]s, such as sugar and tobacco. By 1840, newcomers whose wealth came from these enterprises turned New Orleans into the third largest [[metropolis]] in the country.<ref name=”OnParade”>J. Mark Souther. ”New Orleans on Parade.” Baton Rouge, Louisiana: Louisiana State University Press, 2006. Print</ref> The city’s port was the nation’s second largest, with [[New York City]] being the largest.<ref>{{Cite web|url=|title=Coffee Trade and Port of New Orleans||date=14 January 2014|language=en|access-date=2018-10-23}}</ref>

The main difference between New Orleans and other Southern cities was its unique cultural heritage as a result of formerly having been a French and Spanish possession. Promoters emphasized this cultural legacy, in the form of its architecture, cuisine and traditions, to attract [[Tourism|tourists]] to New Orleans.<ref name=”OnParade” />

===1880 to 1960===

The French Quarter was central to this image of cultural legacy and became the best-known part of the city. Recent arrivals in New Orleans criticized the perceived loose morals of the [[Louisiana Creole people|Creoles]], a perception that drew many travelers to New Orleans to drink, gamble and visit the city’s [[brothels]], beginning in the 1880s.<ref name=”OnParade” />

Bourbon Street was a premier residential area prior to 1900.<ref name=”gonola” /> This changed in the late 1800s and early 1900s,, when the [[Storyville, New Orleans|Storyville]] [[red-light district]] was constructed on [[Basin Street]] adjacent to the French Quarter. The area became known for prostitution, gambling and [[vaudeville]] acts.<ref name=”storyvilledistrictnola”>{{Cite web|url=|title=Storyville History: New Orleans|}}</ref> Jazz is said to have developed here, with artists such as [[King Oliver]] and [[Jelly Roll Morton]] providing musical entertainment at the brothels.

This was also the era when some of New Orleans’ most famous restaurants were founded, including Galatoire’s, located at 209 Bourbon Street.<ref name=”galatoires”>{{Cite web|url=|title=About &#124; Galatoire|}}</ref> It was established by [[Jean Galatoire]] in 1905. Known for years by its characteristic line snaking down Bourbon Street, patrons waited for hours just to get a table — especially on Fridays.<ref name=”galatoires” />

Before World War II, the French Quarter was emerging as a major asset to the city’s economy. While there was an interest in historic districts at the time, [[Real estate development|developers]] pressured to modernize the city. Simultaneously, with the wartime influx of people, property owners opened adult-centered nightclubs to capitalize on the city’s risqué image. Wartime Bourbon Street was memorably depicted in [[Erle Stanley Gardner]]’s detective novel “Owls Don’t Blink”. After the war, Bourbon Street became the new Storyville in terms of reputation.<ref name=”OnParade” /> By the 1940s and 1950s, nightclubs lined Bourbon Street. Over 50 different burlesque shows, striptease acts and exotic dancers could be found.<ref name=”OnParade” />

===1960 to today===

There was a move in the 1960s under District Attorney [[Jim Garrison]] to clean up Bourbon Street. In August 1962, two months after he was elected, Garrison began [[Police raid|raiding]] adult entertainment establishments on Bourbon. His efforts mirrored those of his predecessors, which had been largely unsuccessful; however, he had more success. He forced closure on a dozen nightclubs convicted of prostitution and selling overpriced alcohol. Following this campaign, Bourbon Street was populated by [[peep show]]s and sidewalk beer stands.<ref>Savage, James. “Born on Bourbon Street: Jim Garrison’s French Quarter Fracas and the Shady

When Mayor Moon Landrieu came into office in 1970, he focused his efforts on stimulating tourism. He did so by making Bourbon Street a pedestrian mall, making it more inviting.<ref name=”OnParade” /> The 1980s and 1990s were characterized by a [[Disneyfication]] of Bourbon Street. Critics of the rapid increase of souvenir shops and corporate ventures said that Bourbon Street had become Creole Disneyland. They also argued that the street’s authenticity had been lost in this process.<ref>Gotham, Kevin Fox. “Authentic New Orleans: Touristm, Culture, and Race in the Big Easy.” New York: New York University Press, 2007.

On April 5, 2018, a giant saxophone, nearly {{convert|11|ft}} high, was inaugurated in the street. It was offered by the city of [[Namur]] (Belgium) to recall that the inventor of the instrument [[Adolphe Sax]] is from the region of Namur, specifically [[Dinant]].<ref>{{Cite web|url=|title=Un saxophone géant namurois offert à la Nouvelle-Orléans pour son 300ème anniversaire|date=April 4, 2018|website=RTBF Info}}</ref>

===Impact of Hurricane Katrina===

{{Main|Effects of Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans}}

Given Bourbon Street’s high-ground location in the French Quarter, it was mostly intact following 2005’s Hurricane Katrina. A major tourist attraction, Bourbon Street renovation was given high priority after the storm. However, New Orleans was still experiencing a lack of visitors.<ref name=”timemag”>{{Cite magazine |first=Russell |last=Mcculley |date=August 25, 2006 |url=,8599,1334012,00.html |title=Will Bourbon Street Bring the Tourists Back to New Orleans? |magazine=[[Time (magazine)|Time]] |url-status=dead |archive-url=,8599,1334012,00.html |archive-date=September 1, 2006}}</ref> In 2004, the year before Katrina, the city had 10.1 million visitors. The year after the storm, that number was 3.7 million.<ref name=”auto”>{{Cite news|url=|title=New Orleans Breaks Tourism Records for Visitation and Visitor Spending in 2016|date=2017-03-23|access-date=2018-10-23|language=en-us}}</ref>

One third of the city’s operating budget, approximately $6 billion before Katrina, came from visitors and [[Convention (meeting)|conventions]], so officials saw tourism as vital for post-disaster economic recovery.<ref name=”timemag”/>

The New Orleans Tourism Marketing Corporation initiated efforts to draw visitors back to the city, featuring celebrities such as [[Emeril Lagasse]] and [[Patricia Clarkson]] with the slogan, “Come fall In love with Louisiana all over again.”<ref name=”timemag” /> Travelers heard mixed messages in the media. Advertising campaigns gave the impression that New Orleans was thriving, while city leaders asked for increased federal financial assistance and National Guard troops to help control municipal crime waves.<ref name=”timemag” />

New Orleans has been working its way back to pre-Katrina tourist numbers, as it attracted 9.5 million visitors in 2014 and 10.5 million visitors in 2016.<ref name=”nola15″>{{Cite web|url=|title=NOLA – Fest-goers, older vacationers boost New Orleans tourist count in 2014}}</ref> The 2016 record was the highest since 2004.<ref name=”auto”/>

For a time in April 2017, the 100 block of Bourbon Street was closed off for reconstruction of the street and its underground utilities as part of the city’s $6 million French Quarter infrastructure project.<ref>{{Cite news|url=|title=Bourbon Street construction underway, photos||access-date=2017-04-25|language=en-US}}</ref>

Finally finished, “The Best YouTube Music Playlist Ever Forever!” After around 3 months of mental torture! With real music lessons! Everyone gets to learn the songs and gets an “honest history lesson!” too! I want to call it, “Hooked on Music-Phonics,” or an actual “World Record,” or a “Universal Record,” that we can all consider as being priceless. Currently, the playlist has 392 songs, the world record for the most songs sung at once is 105 hours straight! I think that is about 20 to 30 songs x10! Our goal is to beat the world record and sing all 392 songs from the playlist! Try to keep up with the musical storyline, while learning the real meaning behind the lyrics and true actual words, not words that it sounds like because what we think about over and over eventually manifest into reality let me know what you think! Remember, “perfect practice makes perfect,” quote from Kevin Trudeau, thank you! Always practice perfect over and over and over and over, again and again and again every day! World Peace!
