About The Quarter Rat

The Quarter Rat is a completely independent online news website dedicated to covering the French Quarter neighborhood in New Orleans.

The Quarter Rat is neither affiliated with the Quarter Rat, which folded in 2013, nor the Quarter Rat Magazine and Quarter Rat Digest. 

The Quarter Rat logo is the work of Eric T. Styles, who has generously allowed its use for this site.
