Is New Orleans safe for tourism? Are most of the tourist attractions open for business again? What part of town would be the safest to stay at?
Are there any hotels in the French Quarter that have easy and free parking?
Yes New Orleans is definately back up and running and all the tourist areas are in full swing. In fact New Orleans was named a top 10 destination for 2007 by Orbitz and Travel and Leisure Magazine. The most celebrated and historic core of the city—including the Faubourg Marigny, French Quarter, Central Business District, Magazine Street, Garden District and St. Charles Avenue are thriving. Mardi Gras was a complete success and French Quarter Festival had a record crowd of 208,000 on the last day. Jazz Festival was also bigger and better than ever with 375,000 people—the highest since 2003. With all these record breaking crowds this year there is no question that New Orleans is back up and running.
With that said most tourist enjoy staying in the French Quarter. Its safe and surrounded by restaurants, activites etc. My favorite place to stay is Maison DuBois Bed and Breakfast. Its a great French Quarter location, large suites and a wonderful saltwater pool. Below is a link to their site and it has a lot of information about the B&B and the city.

Where can I find grants to plant trees in New Orleans?
I want to revitalize a playground in New Orleans. The area is very poor and coming back slowly that I am considering. Due the families having low budgets, I was thinking of planting apple, orange and pecan trees in the park over the benches. I know the trees would bare fruit and the kids would be able to have a healthy snack. Any ideas of who I could ask for finacing on the trees and materials need to plant them?
ANy ideas on playground funders would be great too.
Start with Parkway Partners, since they already work with NORA on maintaining parks and parkways. Also, try Hike For Katreena, as they have a similar goal to yours.
