The DK guide book on New Orleans suggests caution when walking around outside the French Quarter. When I searched this forum, I found a post from 2009 that says it is safe to walk from the FQ to Emeril's in the Warehouse District for lunch, which suggests to me it is not so safe in the evening.
Should I not walk from the FQ to Emeril's at 800 Tchoupitoulas St.? Google maps says it's only a 20 minute walk.
And is walking from City Park to FQ not advisable? Again, google maps says it's an hour walk which I thought would be good exercise.
