Jesse, Home Buyer in New Orleans, LA

does anyone know much about the area around Royal & Marigny streets? Would it be unwise for me, a mid-20's?

Asked by Jesse, New Orleans, LA Thu Mar 27, 2008

I'm looking at a house on Royal & Marigny streets. I am a 25 year old woman living alone (with a big dog). Would it be an unwise move to live in this area?

It depends on you, your lifestyle such as when and where you work and play, where you came from and what you enjoy. This area has alot of artsy folks but is quite a mix of artsy to movie stars, accountants to chefs and everyone in between.

No matter where you live, be smart with being safe.

Are you looking to buy or rent...for that is the question.
..and your budget is a big deal...especially in this neighbourhood.

Depending where you are along Royal is very important. This area is a series of little neighbourhoods within eclectic culture of its own.

Like many other port cities anywhere in the world there are all kinds of people traversing at all times of dy and night. Moving here would not be unwise...but the secret to finding a place you will love in New Orleans is to drive the neighbourhoods at night..walk in the afternoon when folks are out on their front porch and hear what they have to say.

First thing you should do is drive by frequently. We cant advise on a certain neighborhood, but i alwasy recommend determinging for yourself.

Go in the morning driveby, park for aminute, observe
Go In the evening after dark, scope that out. You should get a pretty good feel of it after a few visits.

There are so many spots that are hit or miss, one block beautiful, one block filthy. You just have to do your research and eventually make you choice.

Good luck and let me know if you need anything
