If you're traveling to New Orleans, I highly recommend staying in this neighborhood if you enjoy a local experience. This neighborhood is relaxed, colorful and friendly. Great food, nightlife and community. Excellent proximity to the French Quarter (an easy walk from just about anywhere in the neighborhood), but just far enough away that you aren't accosted by drunken tourists the moment you leave your front door. I've never had any problems regarding safety and I've walked the streets of the neighborhood both day and night during several trips over the past few years.
