The New Riverwalk

<p>It's been nearly 30 years since the Poydras Street and Julia Street Wharfs were knocked down and transformed into "The Riverwalk Marketplace" directly after the 1984 World's Fair. Over the years, I have to admit that as a local I'd visited The Riverwalk less than a handful of times. Once or twice as a teenager I swung by the Abercrombie there years ago, and most recently checked out the Southern Beverage Museum. That's the extent of my experience with the original Riverwalk.</p>
