moving south

by jenniqtip

is 726 Upperline St. a safe place for a young family to rent?

the Cross Streets: Constance & Laurel St (2 blocks) Magazine St.

I know that no place is completely safe but I want a general answer about safety.

Are there any affordable areas anywhere to live?

Re: moving south

by bocmaxima

That's not a bad area. Uptown/Magazine Street has been getting some of the gentrification from the Garden District, so it's one of the more desirable areas of the city now.
I think it depends more on the individual rental property though. There are some 'holes around there.

There are lots of cheap areas around New Orleans, especially just outside of the city. It just depends on how far out of the city you're willing to live. Most people with kids live in the suburbs because of the generally horrible schools in the city.

Travel Tips for New Orleans

Harrah's Casino

by Bela_LUng

Harrah's operates a casino on Canal Street near the french quartier and riverwalk. It has the usual machines and tables and stuff. Go loose some money or drop acid and walk around. Being attached by a beaver.

hurricane's and red beans & rice

by excitableone

alright it seems silly that a simple little pastry could dominate a trip, but until you've been to cafe du monde and had an order of Beignets oh lord you don't know what your missing.. they have 2 cafe du monde's that we found the best one is in the french quarter it's the main cafe,the other is located in the river walk. BOURBON ST..... RED BEANS & RICE....

this town has a smell that i can't quite explain, or anyone can for that matter but it makes it what it is NEW ORLEANS.. the smell of the streets being cleaned in the morning,the fresh seafood, the alcohol,etc.... this town captured part of my soul, and i will be back many times to experiance the jazz the food everything great about new orleans!!!!

Go to Lafitte Blacksmith bar,...

by VzionQuest

Go to Lafitte Blacksmith bar, dark and gothic ambiance; if you like that sort of thing. Tour guides complete with costume and in character picks ghoul lovers here for a night tour macabre and spiritual tour of New Orleans; sort of like a walking theatre kinda ma jig. Taking a ride down the country along side Mississipi and plantation mansions.

French Quarter

by Helga67

No visit to New Orleans is complete without a visit to the French Quarter. This part of the city has it all: wonderful architecture, lacy ironwork, great shops, jazz clubs, and, of course, Bourbon Street. This is really an unique place that you'll find nowhere else in the US. Walk the cobblestone streets to savor the unique atmosphere.

The Pontalba Buildings

by VeronicaG

The Pontalba buildings with their elegant cast-iron balconies sit on either side of Jackson Square. These townhomes were built by an enterprising Baroness, Micaela Pontalba in the late 1840's. In order to build them, she had to petition the city to revise the original street design.

If you read my tip on St. Louis Cathedral, you may recognize the name. Her father, Don Andres Almanester was instrumental in rebuilding that structure after it was ravaged by a fire in 1788.

Michaela resided in New Orleans for a time, then departed for France when married. A messy divorce drew her back to New Orleans, where she set to planning the construction of these townhomes.

Aside from the townhomes, she helped finance the square's landscaping and provided funds to erect the statue of Andrew Jackson there. Then, after all of this do-gooding, she returned to Paris and later died there.

Currently, the buildings are owned by the state on one side and the city on the other*. The area is now is a pedestrian-only zone with assorted shops, a visitors center and restaurants.

*The Pontalba buildings sit on St. Ann St. and St. Peter St. with Jackson Square in the middle
