New Orleans is NOT Portland or Seattle.  I've lived downtown my whole adult life.  I'm in my fourth gentrifying neighborhood.  I could do the next gentrifying neighborhood, but it gets really exhausting.   Crime spikes, then taxes go up, then you have neighbors who don't say hello properly.  

I really won't know for sure what to look for until I get an offer, so right now I'm trying to keep an open mind.  The fiancee will be here this weekend to start actually looking and there will be .... compromise happening.

Also, you wanna make sure you're in an area that doesn't flood easily. (LOL! Good luck finding that!) ;)

Seriously though, take a look at social media to see streets that flooded this past weekend. Oh, and don't forget your driveway needs to be elevated and not just the house. My friends in Lakeview got three inches in their house in the back room, and the neighbors' cars parked on the street out front got flooded. However, their driveway was elevated enough so that their cars were okay.
