I'm moving to take a job at Tulane and have 2 small children, ages 5 and 3. My wife wants to live in Uptown, but considering Metairie and River Ridge. With 2 young children, are there areas of Uptown that would be safe to live with kids, and where are they? It seems that there have been several car thefts and burglaries. Any advice appreciated.

Any where bounded between Jefferson Ave. all the way to the Park, and St. Charles to Tchoup is pretty darn safe.

Since crime is everywhere, safe is a relative term. Uptown is one of the safer areas of New Orleans, but generally not as safe as Metairie or River Ridge.

I'd actually doubt that...

I know people who have small children in the above area and leave doors open at night even, while I don't find Metarie all that safe at all.

There are some "safer" areas in uptown like Vamp said. However, having lived in River Ridge, I would have to say that it is safer than uptown and metairie. Personally, if I lived uptown, I would not leave any doors or windows open. I know so many people that have been burglarized, had a car stolen or even mugged uptown. Anyway, my recommendation is River Ridge.

I'd still vote Uptown, but I'm definitely an advocate of living in New Orleans.

I don't even get why some people would do something foolish like that. They're just asking to get robbed. No matter where I go or how comfortable I feel where I'm at, I always lock my doors.
