I've stayed at the Esplanade Apartments for 3 years. It's amazing and pretty much worth the 4 figure monthly rent (one bedroom).
New Orleans is, for any given non-drug user/dealer, as safe as any other major city as most of the murders and more significant crimes are related to drug dealing. Of course there are crimes other than those that affect affect regular citizens on a more frequent basis, but they don't really occur at a higher rate than they would in similarly sized cities with similar demographics.
Also, I've never been robbed or anything along those lines, and I don't know anyone who has.
