Safely exploring New Orleans on foot.

I'll be in New Orleans this week for the first time. I love to explore new-to-me cities by wandering around independently on foot, without too much of a plan. It's my favorite thing to do when traveling, and New Orleans seems particularly fascinating.
My starting and ending point is the French Quarter.
I'm a white male in his late 20s, of average size and nerdy appearance. You can assume that I'm a reasonable person, cautious but not unduly paranoid, and that I have tons of experience living in and walking around big cities of all kinds. You can also assume I'll be doing this during the day and early evening.
What are my boundaries for safe wandering, if any?
