Which city would you consider more urban from a traditional northeastern perspective between Richmond Va and New Orleans. Both cities feature very dense neighborhoods and some suburban style areas.

Even though Richmond has row-houses that resemble northeastern cities, I would still say New Orleans feels more urban as a city. Especially on the street level.

Never been to NO, but I would assume they're fairly close. Inner-city Richmond does, though, have several neighborhoods between 5k-10k density, and two neighborhoods above 10k density. And this is visible from the street level (Jackson Ward, The Fan, Shockoe Bottom, etc)...

Looking at google maps Nola appears to have a tighter street grid than Richmond and New Orleans also feels more urban on a street level as well.

Seems like it would be New Orleans from street activity, downtown/French Quarter, and Magazine St. Does Richmond have anything that compares to Magazine St other than Broad?

New Orleans is more of a city, no doubt. But at a smaller size, Richmond has equivalent density if that makes sense - like Richmond is a couple of neighborhoods in New Orleans.

New Orleans, by far. New Orleans is the most urban U.S. city south of Washington DC.

No. Miami and Atlanta have New Orleans beat in terms of urban density

Not even close. There's no neighborhood in Miami or Atlanta comparable to the historic built form in New Orleans.
