I am looking for a more permanent place to live. I am currently in Bayou St John about a block of the canal. Love it! But my space was always intended to be temporary and I am checking out other rental options.

I recently got a response from a landlord with a place on St Ferdinand between Burgundy and Dauphine. He says its in the Marigny-- looks like Bywater to me. I haven't viewed it yet. Is it worth it? Seems like a good price and square footage. Opinions?

That's the Marigny. The Bywater technically starts a block from there on Press. I would LOVE to live right there. Enough said.

It technically is the Marigny but no one will criticize you for calling it the Bywater and I usually call it the Bywater. Everybody has different boundaries for just about every neighborhood in the city. That is a great spot aswell.

The crime map does not look fantastic. Time to do a night time drive by! But I think I am gonna take a look. $1150 for a 2bd 2 bath renovated place seems pretty decent.

Well there is a bad nieghborhood on the other side of St. Claude which is 2-3 blocks away but I would not worry to much about that.

That's a good price and a good area.

A night drive by is not the best method to check out a neighborhood. You need to get out and actually walk that area at night to see if you feel comfortable.

Went by today-- actually walked all the way from Bayou St John to Burgundy and St Ferdinand (I need the exercise). Loved the area! You guys were absolutely right. The block isn't as gentrified as some of the Marigny, but it was fantastic, super quiet but close to everything. It felt really safe. And you could hear the horns from the boats on the river. How cool is that?

Goes to show that there is no substitute for seeing for yourself. If I had just gone on the crime stats, there would be no way I would live in the area.

Man, I would love to live there, but what my cash will buy is all north of the Marigny, lol.
Still fun to read through Trulia and dream.

Man! I didn't take it! I found a deal I just couldn't pass up the day after I walked over there. But it was a sage green house with sort of orangey trim and black shutters.
