Its a fine neighborhood. I very much like living near Harrison avenue and being able to walk to a grocery, my bank, a convenience store, and multiple bars and restaurants.

Lakeview is very neighborhood friendly, and super convenient. The locals are great, and the restaurant scene is very lively. Amazing neighborhood to live in.
This neighborhood is very quiet and crime rates are low. Very close to Lake Pontchartrain. The only complaint I would have is the road quality in the neighborhood.
