(Field Notes) Geronimo Knows: Louis Armstrong Park

#fieldnotes and photographs from @geronimoknows

Louis ”Satchmo” Armstrong is New Orleans’ most famous son. The legendary trumpeter was born 117 years ago in a section of the city once known as The Battlefield. Thick skin and heart were a prerequisite to survive there, but the challenges of Armstrong’s youth greatly added to the vibrancy of his music

Pictured is the gate to Louis Armstrong Park which sits on N. Rampart Street. A grand sight to see during the day or night. You’ll always find residents and tourists stopping to take photos in front of the archway.
