hey y'all, hope summer finds everyone well.
i was in town in early June; on the way to give a Gambit Weekly post a look, my roommate and i drove by the apartment we ended up taking. in what i assume is typical new orleans style, the apartment (second floor of a house close to campus) was not listed--the only way we knew it was for rent was because it had, well, a "for rent" sign in the window. called the owner, looked at it, and after looking at a few other apartments (and becoming a bit discouraged), we took it.
i'd use Gambit Weekly and whatever Tulane has listed as a starting point. i wasn't very happy with what was posted on craigslist in new orleans (which is surprising since i've used it to find my last two apartments here in boston).
my advice would be to get a few promising leads and then ask someone who knows the area about the places you have found. maybe they'd even drive by them for you (i would offer, but i won't be moving for another month).
best of luck though! can't wait to meet everyone.
