When you look at the economics of the area, they are indeed getting better, however that is a result from northerners migrating southward. House rates are improving because the people coming down are renovating the older houses and buildings. However, this is also increasing rent and other residential prices. Most locals are having a harder time remaining in their original residences (gentrification is very prevalent here). This also means that the culture of the city is slowly disappearing, which is something that is very sad to see.

The police department is lacking. It's not very common to see police around the area.
It could be better. It was a great place and neighbor to live in before the Hurricane Katrina came.
