While it's true, people today believe inner city's are more dangerous.

New Orleans could get a little bigger. I look at New Orleans and it reminds me of Amsterdam. Terrain and location-wise, both are similar. Only difference being climate. If New Orleans could follow the example of what Amsterdam has done, it could become a bigger city.

One the of the reasons why NYC is safe because of NYC's beefed-up security and law enforcement agencies because of 9/11, before then NY was one of the most dangerous cities and still are in some parts of the city like South Bronx and Brooklyn.

I went to a closed door meeting last week with my company and we are talking about expansion and large growing markets across the country on a list were shown to the meeting...it was good to see that New Orleans (city proper) is projected to grow by 110,000 in the next 5 years. Have to admit, though, that I am not totally surprised.

The keyword here is safe. Regardless of what they did, it remains safe while being the antithesis of suburbia at the same time. It's also proof that the core and more dense parts of a city can be safer than the areas around it. The turn around in Manhattan and parts of Brooklyn were in the making before 911, however.

Yeah, how that number can be accurate I don't know... that's a projection of around 30% growth in five years. Not believing it, no matter how optimistic about the city I am.

In terms of population & economic scale I think the city has alot of growing to do. In terms of geographical size... not much.

No. It would take decades at least for New Orleans to get that big even if everything went in its favor and against those other cities.
