I just got a job in Chalmette, and I am looking for suggestions on where to live. I'm in a single woman in my 20's, and I'm hoping for something under a $1000/month. Any suggestions??

What kind of person are you? Do you want nightlife? Do you want a quiet street? Do you want walkability? Have you ever been to New Orleans before? Have you ever been to St. Bernard parish? What interests you about New Orleans? Will you have a car?

Obviously, Chalmette is closest to your job. However, St. Bernard parish tends to be a very tight knit community like a small town. It has a suburban blue collar vibe. It's a safe area crime wise, but not really somewhere I would send a transplant who is interested in New Orleans.

As a single twenty-something transplant working in St. Bernard, I would first check out the Marigny and Bywater. This is probably the hip-est area of the city right now. These neighborhoods will give you an very easy commute down to Chalmette, and have plenty of nightlife within a few blocks.

I'm from the country, so living in a city is pretty new to me. I did live in New Orleans for a year while in school, but I still feel as though I'm not familiar with the outlying areas. I lived near City Park the last time I was there, and I loved it. I'm considering trying to live in the same apartments, but I really would like to try somewhere new. I'm pretty open to living in any part of the area as long as I will feel safe there. I'll have a truck, so I don't have to be within walking distance, but it would be nice to be able to ride my bike to the grocery store or whatnot every once in a while.
