The streetcar is great. the public transportation as a whole, is lacking. There are not enough police officers to protect the area. The roads are bumpy with potholes. The recycling only comes to single home residents or a certain type of residents and excludes apartments. Glass is also not recycled in this area and there are not enough recycling bins per household in New Orleans.

New Orleans overall is having a brain gain. The uptown New Orleans area is only good for college students (bars, restaurants, and boutiques) or hospitality industry. The New Orleans area is great for entrepreneurs and people looking to start new businesses.
There is a lot of crime around the city. The black pearl area is ok compared to the other areas in New Orleans. There is a private neighborhood security truck that roams the area, which is nice. The police is doing what they can with little man power and a spike in crimes.
