As stated before, it is said to be the safest neighborhood in New Orleans. The homeowners in the area are all very well off with great careers including doctors and lawyers. Campus police is constantly doing rounds around the neighborhood since we are close to the broadway campus of Loyola and an elementary school. Our home came with surveillance cameras and there are other cameras around the surrounding streets so my roommate and I feel extremely safe in this current apartment.

It is said to be the safest neighborhood in New Orleans. We live about 3 blocks away from both the broadway campus of my university as well as an elementary school. There is constant university police driving around, especially at night, which makes both my roommate and myself feel more comfortable in the area. Our landlord is great and extremely attentive with meeting the needs of the apartment. We could not feel more excited to be spending the next year living there, and hopefully many more to come.
Reilly, a gym, is close by! Many locals use it.
