New Orleans Named In 25 Hottest Neighborhoods In America

NEW ORLEANS – Online apartment hunting website Hotspot Rentals recently released a list of its "25 Hottest Neighborhoods in America" and New Orleans made the list. Out of the 25 neighborhoods listed, the Lower Garden District was ranked 21. 

"Exciting urban neighborhoods are as prevalent as ever," the report stated. "Every city has new hotspots, gritty classics and much in between. But how do you quantify the “coolness” of a given neighborhood, beyond what’s simply trendy and hip? How do you compare the vibrant and diverse cultural epicenters of our nation’s most beloved cities?"

The company used data from a multitude of sources, including Yelp and TripAdvisor, to determine "street cred" for the list. The neighborhoods were judged on six different dimensions: walkability, transit, budget, entertainment, lifestyle and weather.
