I'm going to be starting work at Tulane medical center this July and would like to live close to the hospital? Which areas are safe to live? I would rather not commute too far. I'd like to live where there is parking available. My budget is for 1500-1600. If anyone can give any advice, I'd be ever so grateful. I'm moving from SoUthern California and a bit nervous to move. Thanks all!

This is just a block or two from there, you could walk to work:

Saratoga by Wisznia | Home

This is farther away, maybe a 15-minute walk (but about a 5-minute car drive, it's basically the "next neighborhood over")

Apartments In New Orleans, Louisiana, The Saulet - 1420 Annunciation St. New Orleans, LA 70130 - T: 888.461.4170 - F: 504.586.9064 -

These are just what sprang to mind, they're both complexes but the first has an attached parking garage and the second guaranteed parking (I used to live in the second one).

The saulet is maybe 1100 for a nice one-bedroom, and it's a newer complex with pools, a gym, etc., and the aforementioned parking- in decks behind gates (the whole complex is behind a gate (s)). It depends on whether you want the super-urban "downtown living" experience or whether you would like more space and still be very close in.

Don't restrict yourself to just what I've suggested though, for 15-1600 a month you could probably find a really nice 1br on St. Charles (our big "rich street") and be surrounded by 10,000sf mansions and streetcars rolling by under 100 year old live oaks. That would put you in a more residential area, though still very densely packed with stores, restaurants, etc.... in many ways more than the two I mentioned.

There are also other apartment complexes/buildings in the downtown core area, but I mentioned the ones I am most familiar with.

The Saratoga is a great idea as is anything in the CBD/Warehouse district if you can afford it. You will have to figure in parking (~$125+) for any building in that area. The Saulet is just outside of the Warehouse Dist, but you'll get more for your money.

Old Metairie is an "inner" suburb only 20 minutes or less from the Med Center. It's relatively safe, has lots of walkable shops and restaurant, banks, groceries, etc. Large oak trees in many parts and a "playground" with a 2 mile jogging track.
