New Orleans is like any large city, stay in groups and be aware and you you'll be fine. The French Quarter, Downtown, and the Marigny are safe and where you would be spending most of your down time. At the work sites. the neighborhoods are typically sparsely populated and you are with a large group, we have never had a problem.
