I am looking to relocate to N.O. in the near future. I was wondering what is the average rent for a studio apartment in downtown. Nothing ghetto nothing luxury just average. My other question is if one lives and works downtown do you really need to have a car. Are there grocery stores etc. downtown. Also on a side note I see a lot of negative threads about N. O. Well I for one am in love with this city. N.O. is one of the most magical cities in the country. The first time I ever stepped foot in this city i was totally captivated. Funny thing is I am not really a big party person. Thanks for any suggestions.

Most around the CBD area can be from $800-$1000 from what I've seen. The Quarter will be more expensive unless you fan find a single room to rent.

You'll need a car. Groceries are a long way off, especially if it's raining or 95 Deg with 95% humidity.

You don't need a car to live downtown, but you will at least need a bike to make things easier. When you say downtown, I'm assuming you mean the Warehouse Dist. and CBD. A 1br in that area is going to be $1000-1800. If you choose to have a car, then you'll have to pay for parking downtown and that usually starts at $125/month. Not many downtown rentals include a parking space.

For the Quarter, rent will be similar. Parking is on the street if you have a car which is not really a big deal in other neighborhoods, but in the Quarter it can be quite a hassle.

There is a full Rouses grocery just inside the Quarter and they're building another one in the Warehouse Dist., but that is at least a years away. There's a Zara grocery just of the St. Charles streetcar line less than a mile away. There's also a farmers market every Saturday morning at Magazine and Girod.

There are lots of stores Uptown that you can reach by bike, streetcar, or Magazine St. bus (which is pretty frequent). Downtown might not have everything you need, but between a bike and transit, you can get 95% of it.

You can get a one bedroom/studio downtown for less than $1000.
200 Carondelet and Gravier Place come to mind.
