Irish Channel Reviews

I love this city, and particularly this neighborhood. The sense of community is wonderful, and it is full of all of the character that makes New Orleans so unique and crazy. It's convenient to downtown, the highway, and walking distance to many great shops and restaurants.

I have never been happier living in a neighborhood than I do in the Irish Channel. It's neighborly, centrally-located and hight safe.
New Orleans is tough when it comes to crime, because it's a small town and it's easy to get around everywhere. Be safe, lock your doors, befriend your neighbors.
