We used to live in River Ridge. Not much crime at all to speak of. Sorry about what happened to you. Why did you chose to move to New Orleans from South Africa?

Old Metairie and the Whitney Heights area used to be safe, but no area is immune from break-ins. A loud dog and/or a security system are the best ways to safeguard against burglars.
