im wondering about the uptown neighborhood (might go to law school)....I'v done research and it seems like a good place..

will it be cool for a thirty some to live, or is it just young college kids?
Is there cool shops, bars, and resturants?
I guess im wondering if its just got a young, cool vibe to it
Iv checked crime maps and it seems there is hardly any (its all north, north central or other side of F.Q.)

Uptown is a rather large area that consists of everything upriver from Canal Street. Uptown consists of many smaller neighborhoods. Which area were you looking at?

But just to let you know, yes uptown would be a very good fit for 30 somethings.

I'm assuming you mean around the corner of Jefferson and St. Charles? That's a great location. Close to many stores and coffee shops on Magazine, the Magazine bus, The St. Charles Streetcar, and an ever-growing restaurant corridor on Freret a couple blocks in the opposite direction. A whole Foods is very near on Magazine as well.

Yeah, that's definitely a nice area, very safe and very cool. St. Charles is pretty residential once you get past Napolean. Most of the bars and restaurants are along Prytania and Magazine, so the area between St. Charles and Magazine is ideal.

I love it. There is a lot to do plus you have the park & the street car line for running, grocery stores aren't too far away, and not too much crime.

I actually live on St. Charles and Jefferson and I love it and I'm 33. It feels very safe to me and it's easy access to lots of cool places. The only complaint I have about living on St. Charles is that the Street Car is very loud when you are trying to sleep but my neighbor has lived here for 22 years and she says it puts her to sleep. I'm still waiting for that to happen to me. Regardless, great area.

Carrollton, Broadmoor, Uptown/Audubon/University areas would probably suit you well.

I live in the Lower Garden District. Moved to NOLA from Chicago. It is good. You don't have many options like Uptown in New Orleans.
