Excellent neighborhood. Extremely minimum crime, great schools in the area, nice community. Basically mid-old age folks just working and/or minding their business. Safe location, you can even sleep with your door unlocked (not saying you should). It's a very diverse neighborhood, also affordable. Gentilly Terrace lies like in the middle of everything, just a few miles away from the CBD, which makes commuting easier.
Gentilly can be a quiet little neighborhood that borders uptown with great local places to get food including the famous Manchu’s chicken stores that can be found on st. Bernard. Gentilly is also conveniently located near Lake Ponchatrain. Which is a great and sunny location to have a family barbecues especially during holidays
