Statistics say that it is down, 2004 vs 2009 and not just by a little but almost half.

Statistics can lie, just as perceptions can be misleading.

But there are maybe a million or so less people here and maybe the loss of population contained a higher number of criminals than those that remain and returned.

I first came here in 2008, so I have no idea of pre-Katrina life here. I just know that, for me, it's the best place on Earth ;-) I came from Atlanta and - so far - it seems like the nicer areas are bigger here, if that makes any sense. I've walked more here in three weeks than I did in Atlanta in six years (not counting park areas, etc.) My husband and I make sure we've driven any potential walking route first, just to get familiar with it. Any city has areas where you probably don't want to go.

Yes, New Orleans has crime issues, but I feel very safe in my Broadmoor neighborhood, and have had nothing but good reports from the (very friendly) neighbors who have lived here for years. My husband and I will be attending city council meetings and paying close attention to all issues, but especially crime. We intend to be a part of a major change for the better, and we've met a lot of people like us, both natives and transplants. The crime issues here WILL be fixed if enough people care and ACT! It takes more than complaining, moving away, and/or the old "well, that's just New Orleans" attitude.
