THE RINK

TheRinkNOLA1885Half way through your Garden District Tour we stop at the Rink. It opened January 12th 1885 as The Crescent City Roller Skating Rink. Over the years it has been a mortuary, stables, grocery store, gas station, and many other businesses. Today it is home to Still Perkin’ coffee shop and the Anne Rice favorite Garden District Book Shop. Photo by E. Ertz, New Orleans [Public domain]
