Philly_do St. Bernard at this point are requiring that your grass is cut and that your property has windows and doors (or something like it). There are people who have just put up plexi-glass where their windows once were. You need to check the St. Bernard government website for any information pertaining to your property. There is a demo list that you can check and see if your house is on it. Homes that are supposed to be demo'd are ones that don't meet the minium requirements. Check the list because I understand that there are homes on the list that shouldn't be. (SBPG.net - The Official St. Bernard Parish Government Website)

I live in Mid City New Orleans close to Delgado and City Park. I have not come in contact with too much crime myself. I live in an area with mainly homeowners who have lived there for 10+ years. I walk my two dogs everyday and go to the grocery store up the street from house after dark. I don't feel unsafe. I am disturbed by all the crime that is going on the areas surrounding me but I have not been directly affected...(not yet anyway) I am actually moving to Florida in May and am very sad to be leaving New Orleans.

I live in Baton Rouge, and feel safe here. I have been to NO about 6 times since HK and I feel fine walking around the French Quarter, but never(even before HK)would I go out at night pretty much anywhere nowadays, even in 'safe' cities and towns. I just want to know why Colorado is so great though. I have a friend who lives there and thinks the people are very unfriendly, is this true? I think Louisiana people are very kind. Also, she said that the Colorado people are beginning to get po'd due to the fact that so many are moving there from all over the country.

That's old.

I live in New Orleans now, and it is definitely not a place without issues but it's one of the greatest cities in America!@

Yes.

Considering all she's been through, the ol' gal aint doin' too badly. Looking forward to our next trip there in February next year. I dont know of any city that is pure, innocent, and totally free of crime/corruption, etc. Oh wait..there was that city/planet/whatever in 'Brave New World'.

If you look for trouble, you wont have to wait long, it'll find you anywhere.

Yeah, but come on... let's be honest. Look at the crime statistics. N.O. is one of the worst. High crime in all categories... violent crimes, property crimes, you name it.
Maybe trouble will find you anywhere, but it appears it is much more likely in N.O. than in many places.
And yes... I *have* been there.

True, but I think NOLA has enough of the good stuff to outweigh the bad. I'm speaking only for me...it's not for everyone. I have a feeling Vampgrrl *may* like it too...just a hunch.

Well I *really* love this city.
I don't think I could live in most any other American city after living here, and if I was forced to leave it would only for somewhere like Montreal or somewhere in Europe and even then I'd consider it boring.
