I think you said you could afford $1100 a month. If that's the case you should be able to afford a studio in just about any neighborhood down here. In the better neighborhoods they go really fast, so if you see one you like, jump on it quickly. We saw a couple that we liked, but wanted to think it over a little. They were off the market like an hour later.

norb 123, sweetie, I didn't say I could afford $1,100 a month. I only want to pay about $700-800 a month.

Sorry. Sometimes I read too fast. You should still be able to find something decent in that range.

You can look Uptown and Mid-City. I don't think you would find a place for that price in the Bywater.

I know I've seen some signs in the Riverbend area for studios in that range, but you really have to move quickly on those. You're competing with the college students. It's about a 15 minute drive to the quarter, or you can just hop on the street car.

Annie_himself and norb 123 I'm taking notes. Seriously! I really appreciate all the help. Which do you think would be best, staying in a hostel, a hotel or is there bed and breakfasts to stay in temporarily while I apartment hunt? I mean which is the most economical?

I'm not sure when you're planning you're trip but the hotels are cheaper in the summer. There is an extended stay hotel off the interstate in Metairie that looks ok from the outside. Not sure on the hostels.

They call it the fruit loop. You can Google "New Orleans Fruit Loop" and it comes up. And it's okay, I could tell it was an auto correct

Cheap and still safe is pretty hard to do in the city. Rent rates are going nuts because a lot of people are moving here.

chicagotslady, there is also www.airbnb.com where you might find a longer stay option if you contact people.

norb123 I will be making my trip in late August for the purpose of scouting out my new home and hopefully finding a rental by the end of the month with a move in date of September 1st, at least that's the plan. Does that fit in with summer hotel rates?
