Hopefully this reaches you all dry and safe!!! Can anyone tell me if the area around Village de Lest or Michoud in New Orleans East is safe to live? I stayed
with a college friend on a visit several years ago.
I am considering a move and love NOLA but do not
want to be in the downtown/uptown area.
Thanks for the feedback!!!

Safe as in safe from storms/hurricane - no way. That area is prone to flood easily even in major rain makers that are not tropical in nature. Safe as in crime, quality of life? Before Katrina hit (when I lived in the NO area for 28+ years) - maybe. Afterward, I have no idea. Considering the damage it took in Katrina my guess is on the negative side.

Default Clarification

I mean safe in terms of crime. I was told by a few of the neighbors that they haven't flooded since their subdivision was built in the early 1970s. My friend said with Katrina they had less than 2 ft of water. What did them in was the mold because they weren't able to get back into the city. In a three block area where her family's house is, there are next to no FEMA trailers at the beginning of this year. This seems to be a good bet in terms of the flood issue. She also said that pumping stations that controlled the area around NASA and Folgers helped that area? So, I'm mostly concerned about crime- today, that is.
