There was a really neat episode of House Hunters involving a Loyola Law student. She originally put in an offer for an apartment in the French Quarter but her real estate agent convinced her it was an awful idea. She ended up choosing the house closest to campus. It was the biggest and the cheapest. She also looked at the warehouse district. I'm not from New Orleans but I found that episode really helpful. In addition, Lord Chaz (a relatively famous local ghost tour guide who was just on Girls Next Door) advised me that the French Quarter is not the place to live. It seems fun at first but it can get extremely loud and smells like piss and booze sometimes (don't get me wrong I love it anyway). He also mentioned that almost every apartment is haunted and has some kind of sketchy past(take that as you will). You might want to seek out that episode of House Hunters...plus she decorates the entire house with Micky Mouse stuff which is good for a laugh.
