The atmosphere is very peaceful, there isn't as many criminal like there are in other parts of the New Orleans. I do not plan to live in this area in the future because I want to travel, but I would recommend it for other. Where I live feel like living in the country very peaceful, but you still get the city feeling being around everything.

There is crime everywhere in New Orleans. It is getting better I guess when your friend wasn't the one killed this time. Taxes are increasing and gas is high. We have a new governor and will have a new president very soon. S I believe we are moving I the right direction.
In New Orleans, people say,"if you don't like the weather now, wait five minutes." It could be cold one day and really hot the next day. During the summer, there's a thunderstorm almost every afternoon.
