Directions to BANKS ARCADE:
To get from Exchange Alley to our next stop in the Central Business District, walk one block down Exchange Alley toward Canal Street and turn left at Bienville Street. Continue walking on Bienville for a block and a half, until you reach Decatur Street. Turn right on Decatur. From here you’ll keep walking across Canal Street, where Decatur becomes Magazine Street. Our next stop is at the corner of Magazine and Natchez Streets, three blocks past Canal. Look for the St. James Hotel at 330 Magazine. We’ll stop there.
Stand directly across from the St. James Hotel at 330 Magazine Street. The building occupied by the hotel was once part of Banks' Arcade.
