We are hoping to live in New Orleans around Mid-City, the Treme, maybe Bywater if we can afford it, or Uptown/Carrollton. If my husband has to commute to work and has a choice of the Metairie/Kenner area or across the river around Harvey and Gretna which would be less of a hassle? We have a car, but hate the traffic. Thanks for any insight!

I would advise you to avoid commuting across the river if at all possible. There is a few different ways to get out to Metairie, but only one way to get to Gretna. The bridge can be a nightmare at times.

Go with Metairie/Kenner. Carrollton, Broadmoor and Mid-City will be easy to commute from.

Definitely Metairie. The Connector is the only way to get from the city to the Westbank and as rburnett said, it can be a nightmare...and it usually is. Mainly because of the sheer number of cars trying to converge into 4 lanes just past the tolls.

Metairie is the clear winner, many more options for the commute than crossing the river.

Metairie is pretty bad most of the day. Either way you would be reverse commuting.
