Walking distance to Bourbon Street

We will be staying at the Clarion Inn and Suites on Canal Street, how far is the walking distance to Bourbon Street?

Google maps is great for this kind of stuff. Just go to google.com and select "maps" and you can plot the driving or walking distance between just about any 2 places. Public transportation options too, in a lot of places.

So....7 minutes. About a third of a mile.

No matter which part of Bourbon Street I was headed to, I wouldn't walk in the direction given on the Yahoo map in the previous post. It's taking you through some public housing projects perhaps best not explored by tourists.

As IrishFan says, the directions given go right through the Iberville Projects...don't even think about it. Just go South on Canal to Bourbon and turn left.

The Iberville Projects are in the process of being demolished except for about 10 buildings that are being saved for whatever reason. In any case impassable area at the present time and mostly closed up.

Is the Iberville area the original location of Storyville?

the original Storyville was bounded by Iberville, Basin, St. Louis, and N. Robertson, so yeah, most of that became Iberville projects

an interesting note...when they closed and demolished most of Storyville in the 1930's (at the insistence of the Army and Navy) the City government wanted to "change the area" and they re-named Basin Street "North Saratoga" (YUCK!) It took about 20 years before its historic name was restored!
