I agree, you should look into moving on the Westbank. The Westbank has high crime pockets also, so check with Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office for statistics. Stay away from uptown in New Orleans. Good Luck

Er, I live Uptown...its fantastic, what are you talking about? Uptown is the most vibrant part of the city with well kept houses, stores and foot traffic.

Yeah, Uptown over the Westbank anyday, IMO. But there are Westbankers who love it there! To each his own.

I would suggest City of Gretna or Algiers Point. Both are good neighborhoods. I live in the point,but I prefer the City of Gretna. City services are better and the police response time is 3 minutes compared to 30 minutes to 3 hours in New Orleans. There are also better schools in Jefferson Parish. Since he will be working on the west bank he will not have to cross the river if yall live in one of these neighborhoods. If crossing the river is not a problem then you could live in Harahan or River Ridge which are good places with good schools that are also in Jefferson Parish. If you live in these areas instead of New Orleans or Orleans parish you can avoid most of the cons.

The zip code you entered is in Jefferson Parish 'Westwego' (not Orleans Parish) - but yes even where I live many still refer to as Metro Orleans area. That is whet we here refer to as the 'Westbank' as someone above mentioned.

If he works on that side the river, believe me living closer to work would be best as traffic across either bridge can be draining. The Huey P Long being nearest WestWego, which is going through a major renovation.

Just like any place you'll have good and bad areas (and my good may be horrendous to you...lol), so you may have to do a bit of online research for more details to see what you like.

Closest to you on your side (and remember If he's taking River Road it goes really far into dif Parishes/Towns)... zip code 70094 - Google Maps

Default move to Big Easy


I am a resident of New Orleans. After migrating to Texas, visiting Calif, and Georgia I love this city! Of course there are issues in every city however, New Orleans is making a strong comeback(Superbowl in 2013) and hospitality plus! It depends on what you like to do, New Orleans is going through an adjustment process, but I came back home, I live in a quiet subdivision even though those other cities had more to offer,they weren't people friendly and seemed unattached. I love my city and I'm looking forward to a bigger and better city. By the way,we may also be getting a Theme Park/Water Slide project in the works.
