Lakeview is a fantastic central location from just about anything. There are various different routes from you to choose from but the quickest way; I-610 to Elysian Fields will get you there as quick as 10 minutes. Even in the morning commute! Lakeview has seen a sharp increase in prices within the last 18 months, so you may want to try looking in Bucktown or in Metairie just on the other side of this neighborhood that will give you about the same drive time but save you 10's of thousands of dollars. Good luck with your search! Please let me know if I can be of further assistance to you.
