The new streetcar line will run down Elysian Fields if I'm not mistaken.

There's a bus line that runs down Elysian Fields then up Decatur St to Canal St, not sure on the frequency though. There are also buses on Gentilly Rd./Broad, Claiborne Ave., and St. Claude Ave. that might be useful. I know the bus on Gentilly Rd/Broad is pretty frequent, but I can't speak for the others.

roughest parts...now that is funny. sure, there are areas to avoid, but to call these people rough is ridiculous. most are get stupid and make bad decisions, and engage in crime because they don't have money to eat.

What is funny about that? Whether they are hungry, stupid, or make bad decisions, it's still the same. Personally, I would rather be called rough.

They don't have money to eat...? Or to smoke crack?
I'm always amazed when people say they don't have money to eat. First of all, there are missions all over town (I know 2 right around Elysian Fields and St-Claude) that give out prepared meals and snacks, also churches give out meals and food, and with the foodstamps available, there's no reason to go hungry around here.

Seriously. They're places you don't wanna go. Who cares about why you're getting shot? You wanna live in NO East where it's been plagued with home invasions? Or the 7th ward? Lower 9th?

And going hungry here? LOL! Food falls in your lap here. Just hold up some sign and it doesn't even have to say I'm hungry. It could say "I'm Bob" or "My cat likes to pretend the mice she eats are alcoholics" and boom ... you get damn good food.

Amazing how crime dominates your lives in New Orleans. New Orleans really is the Detroit of the South. Why not play safe and avoid the city all together?

It's totally awful. 100% of New Orleans is like that. Every block along Audubon Park and every block in Lakeview. Crime is all we ever think about, we just go to work in fear and come home and we don't go out and do things at all because every time we do that we all get mugged or shot or something. I mean there's nothing to eat, no music, no natural or architectural beauty, no history to explore, no really good people here, no long standing traditions, nothing fun to do here, no genealogical reasons for anybody to live in New Orleans. None. At all. Because the city is too violent and we must all avoid it.

We've gotta tell the millions of tourists that they're in danger!!! Or at least tell them we are moving because it's dangerous for locals. They're gonna have to make their own drinks and do their own sheets from now on, and throw their own Mardi Gras and stuff.
