What Renters Like and Dislike About Elmwood

My favorite thing about my neighborhood is that it is convenient to downtown New Orleans while being much safer than the city. I enjoy spending time at local parks and local shopping.

I love that there are great schools. I love how close the grocery stores are and there are plenty to choose from. There are also 2 gyms.

Breauxmart grocery store-delicious prepared meals, good restaurants and fast food po-boys, friendly neighbors, willing to help each other in their time of need.

I love that I have great grocery stories to go to.There are nice little coffee shops and good schools also.I feel so at home in my neighborhood.

It's a calm and peaceful neighborhood, which I really appreciate with lots of nature around. It's unique in that it's quiet once you're home (nearby) but also is bustling during the daytime as it's surrounded by several plazas and malls.
