My girlfriend and I are originally from Baton Rouge. I'm finishing up at LSU and she is seriously debating transferring to UNO next semester (has a meeting with an adviser on Tues.). This means she would be moving in January.

I spent this weekend riding around with her and her godmother (who has lived off of Ursulines near Bayou St. John for most of her life) talking about the different neighborhoods and debating on where is safe for a 20-something girl to live alone.

I know the city to an extent - Baton Rouge isn't too far and I've spent a good deal of time in New Orleans. I know Baton Rouge is just as dangerous, so she is familiar with being smart about avoiding crime.

She doesn't like Lakeview, although it's proximity to UNO she feels it's too suburban... she's moving out of BR because she hates that.

The area around where her godmother lives is what she has her eye on, but she is also interested in parts of Uptown (even though it is a further commute, she really likes the vibe.)

So - safe areas of Uptown? I know it's a huge area, but any tips other than stay away from the river?

Uptown is the place you want to be.
