No way I would ever live in Gentilly but there are a few spots in there coming back slowly. I think money can be made investing in land/rental properties in that area.

No doubt. The Pratt section is named after my gay great uncle.

Quiet area but really doesn't seem too bad. Just too close to a pretty bad area and it scares a lot of people away.
The big house on Maribeau is owned by the hurwitz mintz owner.

FYI, the house on Pratt and Filmore that was for sale is already under contract in just a few days of being on the market. Way under priced.

This is the right answer.

Places to live:
-Gentilly Terrace
-The Holy Cross/Pratt area
-The bird streets above Robert E Lee and west of Bayou St John are technically Gentilly

Places to avoid:
-Anything between London Ave Canal and Elysian Fields
-Anything between Gentilly Blvd and 610
-Anything west of Franklin Ave


Lot of young professionals coming in buying their first houses South of RE Lee. North of RE Lee is ideal.

Good call. I grew up in Gentilly Woods. Left there in 1975 and only go back once a year at most packing a gun.

That area went to shite way back then.

Don't mean to bump some old shite but I feel I've earned the right to speak on this...


To be honest with you I'd still live in some areas of Gentilly.

You've also got to remember we were in one of the badder areas and it was early '10.

It's NOLA man, if you don't pay attention someone will take advantage of you. The same thing that happened to us could have and has happened everywhere in New Orleans, from Lakeview to Uptown.

I'd look closer to Holy Cross. I went there when it was in the Lower 9 and that's the real hood. The neighborhood around HC was always much more chill and hardly ever had major crimes.
