Note, the resources are not specific to New Orleans, but if you have a chronic condition or have mobility issues, then they may help make your trip to New Orleans more enjoyable.
Keep in mind that New Orleans is an old city and is also under a lot of construction. Sidewalks can be unevenly paved or be missing some bricks. Big oak trees like to stretch out their roots, and when they do, they can cross your path. Bottom line: watch where you are going.
