Architecturally this is a neat place to stroll and, possibly, take some pictures. The stores / restaurants, however, are not worth your time. Also, this area seems a bit dirty and smelly (think a semi-clean New Orleans). Glad to have seen it, but I'm not...More

On a river bank, the variety of stores and restaurants are almost overwhelming. We had dinner at Huey's and recommend it.
