One week down

One worry that we had about living in the city was safety at night. There's been a lot of talk in the news about rising crime. One week in and I feel like we are OK. I've seen a couple of homeless guys but only during the day. We walked home tonight and it was really cool. There are lights everywhere and a bar at almost every corner. From Poydas to the river is a good spot.

One thing I've notice is that there aren't a lot of people walking around. Maybe everyone is moving back into other parts of the city first. I know that housing prices in this area are inflated. Another thing is that we live near most of the hotels and I imagine there's not a lot of tourism these days. Jazz fest is coming up at the end of the month and that's supposed to be a big deal here. Maybe that will change things a little.

It's only been a little while but the warehouse district seems like a great spot. It's exciting to be a part of the new New Orleans.
