I know there are tons of questions about the safety of NOLA post Katrina but I have one too I'm afraid. A friend of mine swears that anything outside of the French Quarter is dangerous but another friend and I are wanting to stay at a hostel outside of the French Quarter for the 4th of July weekend. I haven't read any reviews on the hostel's website saying that it seems dangerous from people who have stayed there but I found this website and thought I'd ask the experts - you guys who live/visit NO! It's located near the corner of 3200 Canal St. and South Lopez St. in the Mid-City area of New Orleans. The website says there is a streetcar that runs all hours to the French Quarter so I figured we could just use that and leave the car parked for the weekend. What do you guys suggest? Stay or find a hotel elsewhere?

I'm excited to come visit! I only live 6-7 hours away and I've never been. Ridiculous huh?

That's a lie, there are absolutely sketchy parts of the city for sure BUT, everything isn't a battle zone as some would lead you to believe.

I was in town apt hunting for the last week and I rode a bike around the quarter, the marigny, bywater, uptown and I'm still typing.

I recommend checking out Metairie park since you are so close. REALLY great place to hang out. So beautiful.
