The Royal Courtyard
Quietly, about two weeks ago, New Orleans Square debuted a new(ish) space to the public. Dubbed "The Royal Courtyard," this outdoor atrium located at 21 Royal Street is an interstitial space between the Port Royal and Pieces of Eight stores with a small selection of retail wares itself. A more compact version of the Court of Angels, this space is also not as ornate, but it does provide a small bit of serenity, away from the bustle of the rest of the land. So even though it's not anything extravagant, from the perspective of offering an amenity of relief, this courtyard is a welcome addition to the park.
