If the link doesn't work from here, just Google City of New Orleans and you should be able to click on crime maps. It lets you search by address, street and boundaries and pinpoints where the incident (theft, auto theft, burglarly, assault and even worse) happened.
I could still use help with finding out how the rental market is in either the Quarter or Faubourg St. John? Are there enough renters out there or are houses sitting empty for long periods?
New Orleans metropolitian area as a whole is doing pretty well,...with a Real estate market nothing like the national trends. What is interesting is there are incredible values where sellers were greedy and wanted a bazillion dollars for their homes a year ago...now the overall perspective trend shows pre-Katrina price levels right now.
