During the day while driving in the neighborhoods, you see kids playing out in the streets and it gives a very family friend vibe and also it's just enjoyable to see others happy. The areas surrounding are a little bit more intimidating. It's not unusual to be gawked at by men. However, you have to take into consideration that this is New Orleans. The restaurants are nice and the local Rouses looks very fancy. Crime seems to be high, but again, this is New Orleans. Keep your cars and houses locked at night just in case. Other than that, the people are friendly and southern hospitality is a thing, especially during Mardi Gras when everybody seems to be happy.

I have lived in Terrytown my entire life. It is a quick drive to the bridge so it is easy to get to the city. It is where I sleep at night, where I work over the summer, and only a short drive from my school. It is where my brother and I played dodgeball and four square and volleyball in the street when we were younger. It is where my friends and I filmed "movies" that we thought we hilarious. It is where my friend and I go on runs and watch sunsets. I cannot imagine growing up anywhere else.
Hello, My name is Sarah Davis. I have lived in Terrytown, LA all my life. I've experienced so much as a kid, for example, cheerleading at the Terrytown Playground. The Playground offers many sports for the local children. It's a perfect way to keep the kids occupied and out of trouble. The area is a very safe environment to live in. What I Like about Terrytown is the fact that it is a small town and everyone around is friendly. My favorite part is driving around the neighborhood during Christmas. The lights are beautiful! you'd really feel the Christmas spirit around Terrytown. Something I'd love to see change is our close neighbors, Algiers Point. Their town is so beautiful but they have a lot of abandoned shops that I'd love to see come back for the locals. A lot of people from Terrytown visit Algiers Point and absolutely love it. It's like a mini French Market but on the West Bank.
