Hi I'm considering moving to New Orleans because a job offer. Wondering which are the best neighborhoods to raise kids, preferably out of the flooding risk areas??

Beautiful, gated community full of lakes, walking trails, and guarded 24-hrs. Absolutely zero crime!

No such thing as good in New Orleans, go live under the water is better for you!

The best neighbourhoods depends on your lifestyle and whether or not you can afford to pay for school.

I forgot my 24100 sq ft. in Marrero listed at 308,000. In metairie or Kenner, and most of N.O. would 380,000 and up. Chalmette(10 ft water/Katrina) and Marrero, you best value for your dollar. Kenny 504-348-0677.

Since you last posted this question, prices for historic homes Uptown under 1500 SF have been escalating.

Most of the people gave some really good advice but they are all obviously not really familiar with the inner city of New Orleans because none of them mentioned the 4th Ward, 5th Ward or 6th Ward, which is understandable. One guy did mention Gentilly, which is in the 7th Ward, and it is a great area to live. I grew up in the Lower 9th Ward. I know that neighborhoods in and out because I've been all over the city. I was never restricted to just one part. I know where the bad neighborhoods are and where the good ones are. And there are plenty of safe neighborhoods outside of that one uptown area that these guys are referring you to.

If you want any help acquiring your home or you need some free, honest information, just email me or visit my site. Thank you, and I hope I was able to help.

Avoid the northshore...the northshore is a congested, traffic laden place...you might as well be in the surburbs in anywhere USA.......let your family experience one of the most unique cities in the world...look at Uptown around State Street. There are some really good values popping up every day in areas that did not flood, close to schools, some of the worlds best restaurants and so much more.

Email me for a list...and take a look at my website to get a locals perspective of the city.

You might want to consider the NorthShore area. Covington, Mandeville, Madisonville. Blue ribbon schools, low crime, peaceful. Easy commute in to New Orleans

Gentilly is very safe and is really coming back since the storm.

near the lake at the end of Canal Blvd. The neighborhoods along the lake had some areas that flooded but if they were far enough north the homes did not flood. Lakeshore and Lake Vista are the best, the areas that did flood are coming back. They both have their own private security patrols. The lakefront is being restored and is a great and beautiful family area for recreation.
