I am a recently divorced mother of two and we want to move to New Orleans. We are not sure where a safe place will be to live. I still have one in junior/middle school and would like him to be in good and safe school. I will also be needing to find a job once I get there any help on that would be great. We are looking for a 3br and a place that will take animals.

We are really excited about our move this summer and can't wait to see the city.

I will assume that the OP and her family have their reasons for choosing to move here, and that they do have some knowledge of the city and just want locals' recommendations on specific neighborhoods.
************************************************** *************************

I don't personally know a lot about specific schools/ school districts. I'm sure there are great threads here on that subject, and I know there are many on neighborhoods in general. From personal experience, I know that the Broadmoor area is really nice and there are a lot of families there. It seems pretty affordable, too. I currently live in Riverbend, which would certainly be pretty pricey for a 3 bdrm, but I don't want to make assumptions about your finances. Mid-City (cheaper) and Bayou St. John (pricier) are great areas, too, and seem to have a lot of families.

What type of work are you looking for?

I can do just about anything. My reason for moving is because my oldest will be going to college down there in Tuluna. And we just want to be close by. I was there along time ago before Katrina and I fell in the love with the city, the people & the water. Just hope alot has not changed. Thanks for you help

I would definately reccomend Broadmoor. It's a safe area that's reasonably priced and in the middle of everything. You can easily bike to Tulane from there and its less than 2 miles to get downtown. You and your son would have easy commutes.

Look at the area between Fontainbleau Dr. and Claiborne Ave. from Nashville Ave. down to Napolean Ave.

I will suggest Jefferson Parish. Good schools compare to New Orleans.
Have your kids tested them
