New Orleans (WGNO)--Friday, Mayor Mitch Landrieu and other city leaders unveiled the new Lafitte Greenway bicycle and walking path.

It's about two and a half miles long and connects six historic neighborhoods from the French Quarter to Bayou St. John and Mid-City.

The corridor where the path was built was first a shipping canal in the mid 18th century and then a railroad after that.
