This helped us out a lot before we moved here from Atlanta. Just remember that a lot of improvements have been done since most of those GoogleMap photos were taken. However, if an area looks good on there it will probably look even better now. That's been my experience anyway.

You do mention you want an area that is "well kept". Keep in mind that the city is old, the streets tend to be lumpy and holey, and is generally rather funky, though in an interesting way. I'm assuming you are not wealthy and are not looking for a manicured estate, so where you want to be may be dictated by how high up on your list "well kept" is. If it's near the top, you might be happier somewhere closer to the airport.

If you decided to move around Maple Street be sure to walk the neighborhood. I think this is often overlooked by newbies to the area. Your neighborhood could literally change within the next block. If you like an apartment, knock on the neighbors doors and find out what they think. You will be amazed at the information you can get from he people next door.

Good luck with you search. If you make a decision make sure you post what neighborhood you decide. This will definitely help other individuals in your same situation.

Side Note: If you move to the Maple Street area make sure you take Leonidas Street to Earhart and not Carrollton Ave because you can't turn directly onto Earhart from Carrollton.

Thank you for all the help!!! I have been exploring around the uptown area. I really like the garden district, but its expensive. I am trying to find a apartment around Magazine St or St Charles. I hope I find one, I have to the end of the month!
