Hello to anyone who can give me guidance,[/font]

My job will take me to New Orleans in a couple of months. I really don’t have a choice and I will need to move my family there. Thankfully, I’ve been blessed with a very understanding and supportive husband. Our main concern however, is that we are Hispanics. We could probably afford a home ranging from $150,000 to $175,000 but we don’t have any idea were to live. Schools are a great concern for me. I would not want our kids to be the only latinos in school. I will be working in New Orleans but, I really don’t mind commuting as far as 45 minutes each way or more if its extremely necessary.
Any suggestions on where to live safely or where can I find a community with a Hispanic population? I will really appreciate any information.

As far as I've seen, the Hispanic population is small in New Orleans. Due to the influx of construction workers from hurricane Katrina, I do see a lot of Hispanic workers around town, but it may be awhile before they start settling here.

We have neighborhoods based on African-American and Vietnamese, but do some searching if you want to check on schools. You will have no problems living in any of the suburbs of New Orleans if you wish although they have much smaller minority populations.

I used to live in Mid-City, and it's very nice, plenty of cafe's and restaurants (Mexican, Italian, Mediterranean/Greek, Vietnamese, and Thai). And that's all within about four blocks.

Note: crime has gone up some since Katrina in the Mid-City area, so I would be a little cautious, but the area bounded by Canal St, City Park Ave, and N Carrollton Ave is still very reasonable and safe.

I'd look on the West Bank based on what you're looking for.
