I just graduated college in Manhattan New York City and am moving to Metairie LA for a job. I have a few questions and would appreciate any answers.

I am moving there with my sister who has a car and is working the same job so I will have a ride to work but need to be able to walk to things like grocery and stores, is that going to be possible?

Is Metairie in general safe are there areas I should stay away from?

Also are there young people there and any type of nightlife?

Thanks for the info really appreciate it

Metairie is a much better place to live than NYC. It's pretty safe, but I would recommend on having a vehicle. The best food in the world is right here, and the people are much friendlier than up there in NY.

Thanks for the info. Although I do love living in NYC I am looking forward to seeing what this southern hospitality is all about. Since I will not have a car for at least a month, do you think it is possible for me to walk around just to get groceries and stuff like that?

Metairie is kind of a typical suburb. It depends on your location to whether you can walk to groceries or not and it is more likely that you wont be able to conveniently walk to those places unless you live close to a shopping corridor. You better check out where you decide to live and maybe base that decision on how close groceries and stuff are. Also for the nightlife part there are obviously going to be some places in Metairie but if you ever want a bigger selection then New Orleans is only a very short car ride away.
