Pretty nice upper upper middle income neighborhoods. I want to say Woodstone was built in the late 70s, and it's "twin" Woodgate was built in the late 80s, with the back portion being built probably about the mid 90s. These neighborhoods (except for the portion of one Woodstone street) are part of the Miss River levee, so flooding shouldn't be an issue - one one of the streets, it slopes down a hill towards Bayou Duplantier. And as far as I can tell, it's not had flooding issues.

All I can really say negatively about Woodstone/Woodgate are (1) The ONLY way in/out is Highland, and it's less than a joy trying to turn into/out of the neighborhood because of the Highland traffic, and (2) because these neighborhoods are surrounded by neighborhoods with tall trees, the power was out after Gustav longer than it was in many BR neighborhoods.

I concur with this post, to the point. It's a nice area. Invest in a generator.

As far as people and housing goes, I'd say about the same. But Bocage is in the middle of everything, Corporate, Towne Center, CitiPlace, close to MidCity. McCarroll (old Bocage itself) is just one entry/exit onto jefferson but it is by traffic light at least. As far as houses go, they can both be pretty pricey, but there is hope to find small homes or rental property around Bocage.
