Since as early as the 1700s, New Orleans has been a city filled with sin and vice. Those first pioneering citizens were thieves, vagabonds and criminals of all kinds. By the time Louisiana fell under American control, New Orleans had become a city of debauchery and corruption camouflaged by decadence. It was also considered one of the country’s most dangerous cities, with a reputation of crime and loose morals. Rampant gambling and prostitution were the norm in 19th century Big Easy.
