I'm considering moving to New Orleans and there's a few things I want to know

Cost, how much do apartments run in a decent neighborhood? I'd like to be able to walk or catch public transportation as I may not have a vehicle when I get there.

Work, what's available and how much does it pay? It's difficult to get hard numbers when looking online.

Which areas should be avoided for either crime or lack of housing and what not?
What ares should I head towards knowing I have a tight budget?

If I am able to have a car is there ample parking in most places and what does it cost?

Well, if you live with a roommate you could expect around $300-500; for a single you'd have to pay more like 650 and up. I have no idea what you do for a living so can't help you there. You could probably find a cheap, safe place to live in midcity or in, in the riverbend area, or in the irish channel. central city has more crime than some other places, i wouldn't recommend living there. wikipedia new orleans neighborhoods and then check out craigslist. some apartments have offstreet parking and some don't, so you would park on the street.
