So where do the ultra wealthy and sports stars live? Do they hire private security or do they not go out at night?

They usually walk around with private security. It's become a decent sized industry in the city now. Even some middle class has them. They only go out with security teams. Brees doesn't need one though because everyone loves him.

I grew up on Nashville and Annunciation, near Audubon Park. Many young professionals are now in this area and have converted shotgun doubles into single family dwellings. I love my old neighborhood, but I would never live in the City again. I live in the burbs now. Extremely high taxes, terrible potholes that are so bad they often cause damage to your car, utilities are outragious, very slow police response. Check out Metairie which is right over the Parish line with very quick access to the City. I lived and worked in Metairie, its less than 5 minutes to the center of the City and 15 minutes to the French Quarter.

Except for your last sentence, which is really over the top . . . you're right on target.

Five minutes? Maybe at one a.m. Commute time from Metairie to the CBD has gotten a lot worse in recent years.

That said: The suburbs are much better than the city itself. I've said for years that the potholes have been there so long, neighbors have birthday parties for them. Utilities, insurance, everything that goes into your day-to-day life, is way too expensive for what you get.

While I felt comfortable, I knew that I had to be alert all the time and when I found out that I was soon going to be a grandmother, I choose to leave the city and move just a few miles outside the city to an area (English Turn) that I had longed to move to because of the peacefulness and serenity of the area. It is only 8 miles from the Central Business District and you don't have to think twice about crime, there just isn't any. Add to that the fact that the home prices there are so much lower than what you'd pay in Uptown or the Garden District, it just doesn't make sense to live anywhere else. My husband and I love it here and my daughter and her family love to spend time here with us. If you want a peaceful, tranquil place to live check out English Turn on the West Bank. It really is a wonderful place to call home.
I drove down that way earlier this summer. For years I avoided the road leading to it because it was in terrible shape -- but the city or state finally turned it into a proper road.

I still couldn't afford to live there, I'm sure, but at least going home and coming out won't be a torture test for you and your vehicle.
