Lafayette Square First known as Place Gravier, it became Lafayette Square after Lafayette’s visit to New Orleans in 1825. Bordered by Poydras Street and St. Charles Avenue, Lafayette Square is located across from the historical Gallier Hall, former City Hall and another great site for music throughout the years. Lafayette Square has been the site inaugurations, yearly pilgrimages by school bands, and jazz concerts for over 150 years. In 1864, famed bandleader Patrick S. Gilmore presented his legendary concert with a 500 plus member band, a choir of thousands of school children, and a bell ringer. Today Lafayette Square is a great place to relax and enjoy the natural beauty of New Orleans right in the heart of the Central Business District.

The F. Edward Hebert Federal Building, at 600 South Maestri Place, was designed in art deco / art moderne style by architect Howard Lovewell Cheney in 1939. Named after the F. Edward Hebert, who served as a U.S. Congressman from Louisiana between 1941-1977, the 12-floor building has held offices and a branch of the U.S. Post Office since opening. The limestone building exhibits rectilinear elements with little embellishment and is decorated with art deco bas-reliefs. Portions of the movie JFK were filmed here.
