I never would have thought I would compare Bourbon Street to anyplace else on earth, but I am tempted to make such a comparison to Broadway. As for noise and cacophony, Broadway gets the edge on a day in and out basis (Bourbon St. at Mardi Gras holds its own, but so probably does Times Square on New Year’s Eve.

As for disgusting, Bourbon St. deserves the edge just because of the sleeze and unbeidled iniquity, but you see plenty of disgusting sights up and down Broadway and Times Square just the same.

As for vehicle traffic, of course, Broadway is peerless for noise,volume, and congestion.

The bottom line is that neither place is my kind of place. People shouldn’t act the way they do in places like that. But that’s one country fellow’s opinion on the subject. Small town life rules!
