Exchange Place, formally Exchange Passage, is a pedestrian zone in the French Quarter of New Orleans, Louisiana.
The street was created in 1831 and was meant to be a second, back entrance to the Merchants' Exchange on Royal Street. Hence, its original name was Passage de la Bourse, or Exchange Passage.
