Hey guys, I've considered moving down to New Orleans for a job and I was wondering what the city is like nowadays. I don't hear much about it anymore and was unsure what the atmosphere is like with regards to affordability, cell phone reception, safety, owning a car down there, ect. I know the French Quarter is back to normal but I've heard much of the city is abandoned. How true is that? How much of the city would you say is "back to normal"? Thanks.
