Night Lights on Belden

Nighttime is the right time on one of The City's most picturesque dining streets, Belden Place, downtown in the shadow of the BofA Tower.
Frenchmen in the early years of Gold Rush settle in this district, hence The French Quarter tag. It can reclaim that title, certainly, each July 14th, Bastille Day, as the street is the epicenter of the party, filled with expatriates and Francophiles eating, drinking, and celebrating the culture's rich pleasures at tables set so very far from home -- Paris just a string of dim lights flickering in their homesick minds.
