I might be relocating to New Orleans and it will probably be a fast move if I get the job. I want to have a good idea of where I want to live before I go to start looking for a place to live. I am single, 32, no kids, and have cats. (sounds like I am lonely cat lady!) Anyway, I used to live in New York City, so I am pretty city savvy. I would like to be within walking distance of shops and restaurants. I will have a car, but I like to take public transportation. I will be working near Xavier U and probably have to go to Tulane occasionally. My budget will probably $900-1000. Let me know your thoughts. Thanks!

Im not sure what rates are like exactly but you may like the neighborhoods around Magazine st. between where it begins at Audubon Park down to maybe Louisiana. Some areas used to be a little sketch but I dont think its all that bad. Xavier and Tulane in New Orleans scale are across town from each other lol. Its not a very big place this city. Public Trans may not be as reliable as you may hope. Shops here are along Carrollton where it meets St. Charles, Magazine St., the Quarter, Maybe a few places out in Lakeview. Our public trans system is nowhere near that of NY's. Its more of a tourist attraction.

Nico82NO,

Thanks for your reply. Are the buses not reliable? I don't have to take public transportation, but it would be nice. I will check out the areas you suggested. I have looked at some of your other posts and you seem to know alot about NO. Hopefully, I get this job since I like what I seeing.

Last time I really took a bus was back in highschool maybe 12 years ago before I could drive and they weren't the best back then. Today, not so sure if they have improved. I forgot to mention the area around oak st. Near carrollton. They just repaved that road and there are a bunch of shops etc along it. It is walking distance to carrollton and st. Charles intersection. Most all of what I've mentioned is uptown. If you have a car you can drive downtown, parking is not so bad compared to new york. There are early bird specials for public pay lots. Beware though if this move will be soon, carrollton is being worked on extensively and it is the main corridor you might use between tulane and xavier, unless you cut through broadmoor neighborhood(which is what I do). There is a lot of traffic on that road these days.

Nico82NO,

Thanks again. I will look at that area too. Good to know about the construction. I saw a place near where I would be working called the Crescent Club and if the area is not to bad, I could walk to work. At least the drive would be short. I just don't want to have to drive long distances everyday. My interview is tomorrow.
