Carly Plotkin is the marketing manager for the The Outlet Collection at Riverwalk. From the earliest days of New Orleans, the riverfront has been an important place of commerce. In this podcast, Carly gives us a brief history of the area, explains the origins of the Riverwalk as a modern-day market place, and describes the newly revitalized shopping mecca called The Outlet Collection at Riverwalk. This upscale shopping venue is home to the first Neiman Marcus store in Louisiana. Carly talks about the history of the Spanish Plaza that is adjacent to the Riverwalk and notes that the 2015 French Quarter Festival in mid-April will expand outside of the French Quarter for the first time. The festival will have a new stage located in the Spanish Plaza next to the Riverwalk. Carly invites festival goers who need a few minutes to cool off during the French Quarter Festival to stop by and enjoy the refreshing air-conditioning and explore the inviting shops at The Outlet Collection at Riverwalk.
