Hi, we're considering relocating to NOLA and are looking for neighborhood recommendations. We're looking to rent a vintage apartment with hardwood floors. We'd like to live in a walkable neighborhood where nightlife, restaurants and grocery are nearby. Thanks for any help!

Side note: We're vegetarian and would like to know if NOLA has any veg-friendly restaurants? Of course we're not looking to live right next door to one but it'd be nice info to know!

I would look in the Marigny first. It's a very gay-friendly neighborhood just downriver of the French Quarter. It's very walkable and the "local music strip". (Frenchman Street) is contained within its boundaries. If you can find something there within your budget, it sounds perfect for you.

Agreed. I wouldn't rule out the French Quarter either, especially if you don't need to drive a car every day.

What is your budget? Where will you be working?

Where we will be working is TBD but we'd like to find a one bedroom between $600-$725 a month. Is that possible in Marigny or the fringes of the Quarter?

You'd be pushing it I think in the Marigny. Likely to be a shotgun house. Maybe in Mid-City.

If you are interested in a high-rise, try 930 Poydrus. I'm not sure if it will be in your price range but it does meet your criterion.

What about Bywater? Would there be at least a handful of houses there in the previously stated price range at any given point in time?

I think you could definitely find that if you look hard.
