You should probably stay away from Gentilly because the Uptown folks go there to commit crimes and the Metairie folks goto the New Orleans East area and the Bywater folks go to the Westbank area. Is this person serious??? How can pass judgement on an entire neighborhood? I guess the middle class folks in Gentilly are just waiting for upperclass Uptowner to come to home.

Dude please tell me what big time crime has occurred in Gentilly recently? I live in Gentilly Woods which is right next door to Ponchartrain Park, the neighborhood RIGHT next to SUNO.... I sometimes let my dog outside at 2am literally, NOTHING EVER HAPPENS AROUND HERE *knocks on wood. Sure Chef may be a little low quality but it's improving.

If you want to rent, I suggest you get in touch with the Pontilly neighborhood association it's against the neighborhood rules to put a "For Rent" sound outside of an available home.

I can't speak for the whole Gentilly, and the area bordering the new Holy Cross school and Robert E. Lee isn't bad at all either. I rather live in Gentilly than uptown, there's always a murder, rape or armed robbery going on around there. VERY CLOSE TO THE GHETTO... Gentilly? Not so much.

Default Grew up Uptown Valence and Magazine

Dude, I grew up uptown, moved around in just about every neighborhood out there. I have family in Gentilly and spent alot of time there too. Just because they raised the prices and remodeled homes, not to mention jacked the prices to rip off people from out of town, the crime was always the worst uptown it may have died down Post Katrina, but believe me, that won't last. As far as Gentilly, just like the whole city crime is everywhere, you may get spurts here and there but it is safer and always has been safer than anywhere else in the city, especially if you have kids. Ya'll can fool the outta towners calling Irish Channel/ St Thomas Project area the Lower Garden... what it really was, and probably still is, is a graveyard for hundreds of murder victims. You must be a landlord with property you wanna rent uptown, more than likely you not from here. Well either way, you crack me up... there really is no "safe" neighborhood in New Orleans. So please shut the up if you aren't a native. Thank You and God have mercy on you!

Don't let people fool yall outta towners with the fancy names and tv shows and jacking the rent up Post Katrina... This isn't Hollywood... Trust me New Orleans is fun its a beautiful city, but it is Raw, Uncut, Survival of the fittest, Ive seen Multi-Million dollar Attorneys go under. buying crack in the projects, selling all they own, losing it all. Plenty of times. Heed of warning this is a small city with a big city mental. Crime is high but they know not to report it all, the politicians are known for sweeping **** under the rug. Yall be careful and don't get got. 2k a mnth to live in the hood, you can make the houses pretty but its still a cut throat city. Watcha backs
