The area that I live in is the safest part of Gentilly to live in besides closer to bayou st. john. The neighbors are friendly for the most part. My dogs get out regularly and they will bring them back if they've been out too long or call me to let me know where they are. It's not perfect, but it's pretty good. Housing prices are going up as there area is gentrifying, but it is a convenient location. Not a long commute to other areas in the city and easy access to the interstate. The biggest complaint is probably the broken streets, but that's all over the city.

It's New Orleans, so there are going to be issues with crime and safety. As long as you take normal precautions (lock your doors and car, install a security system, don't walk outside at night alone), you should be ok. There are a couple of police officers that live in my immediate area and there is a police and fire station right down the street.
Fillmore is a quiet family friendly neighborhood. But the potholes in this area will have you apologizing to your car. It is close to many restaurant and stores. and there are many schools in the area.
