Vieux Carré Property Owners, Residents & Associates Executive Director Meg Lousteau believes French Quarter living is changing -- and not for the better.

Lousteau told WWL-TV that quality of life issues -- like crime and parking -- and short-term rentals through sites like trendy Airbnb are affecting housing.
