Long Street Review
The section of Long between Orange and Strand streets is lined with magnificently restored Georgian and Victorian buildings. Wrought-iron balconies and fancy curlicues on these colorful houses evoke the French Quarter in New Orleans. In the 1960s, Long Street played host to bars, prostitutes, and sleazy hotels, but today antiques dealers, the Pan-African Market, funky clothing outlets and a plethora of cafes, bars, and restaurants make this one of the best browsing streets in the city. Lodgings here range from backpackers' digs to the posh Grand Daddy. At the mountain end is Long Street Baths, an indoor swimming pool and old Turkish hammam (steam bath).
