hi everyone! good afternoon/morning

well i'm planning on making a big move soon from NEW YORK CITY to either new orleans or philadelphia pennsylvania

i am leaning more towards new orleans because i enjoy the warm weather

i have been speaking to a few individuals from new orleans that work in french quarter and they tell me that with 600 dollars a month i can get a nice apartment (not looking for an apartment looking to rent a room) they tell me the jobs are booming (lots a new jobs coming)

now i plan on moving there with 6 thousand or 7 thousand dollars

i would like to know if that is enough money?

and just any additional information i need to know please i would love to know

are there many jobs?

community college tuitions? if you can please

weather information?

Bartending jobs are always to be had. I don't know about $600 apartments, but it sounds like you'll be moving down with a nice "cushion".

The weather: hot. Very, very hot.

Your name's "Hipsterific," so I would point you to the Bywater neighborhood. Sometimes called "Williamsburg of the South"

You're not bothering me at all.

I think 7,000 will last quite a while...we're a much cheaper place than NYC, though that's not telling you anything new.

I would really go to craigslist and look through housing. As I said, the Bywater is the hipster center but there are also lots of young people in the Lower Garden District and Mid-City.

Another thing is that biking is a big deal here. So you can get by with using your car once a week, or even less, if that's the sort of thing that appeals to you.

The FQ is one of the two or three most expensive parts of the city. It's not just partying, a lot of people who have a lot of money live there. Still, if you look really hard, you might be able to find something within your price range, either there or nearby.

Keep your car, but save a bundle on gas by biking a lot..the heat and monsoon like thunderstorms will make you want a car. And the transit isn't that great.

I recently moved to the French Quarter. After about three week of house hunting, the cheapest rent i could find for a 1 bedroom was $1100. Outside of the French Quarter (and a couple other areas) you can easily find rent for 600. Look Uptown or Mid-City. You can rent very cheap in either and take the streetcar downtown or to the French Quarter.
