Bridge City Reviews

1 review
I enjoy the people here in New Orleans. Walking down the street, you can wave to people, and they wave back. People start conversations with you, and they are pretty friendly most of the time. What I dislike about this area is the high cost of living, the crime, and the lack of family activities.
