18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest People
Deserted Jackson Square

Located at the corner of Jackson’s Square, Muriel’s is one of the more popular restaurants in New Orleans. It’s location is one of the most iconic spots in the city. Every time I’ve been there it’s always been packed. While it was great to see people were not out and about to help contain spread of COVID-19, I have to admit it was surreal to see this place turn into a ghost town.
