I realize this is an old post, but why would you put an "Indy vs Louisville" thread in the Indianapolis forum? Don't you think more Indy fans and residents will see it? Of course they will vote for it over Louisville, pretty biased results there. Best bet would have been to go in the City vs City, unless you're just looking for reassurance that Indianapolis is better in someway to suit your aspirations.

I think the metro area encompasses all the suburban and outlying towns that feed the city. There are plenty of people will make 43 mile commute to work every day.

Also, not sure if it was or wasn't when your post was written, but I'm pretty sure Akron is part of the Cleveland metro now, and if not it's at the very least part of the CSA. Also, Akron is more of its own city that just happens to have a close border with Cleveland. Anderson is like a satellite city of Indy, it grew up with Indy.

Having lived in both, albeit only a short time in Louisville, I greatly prefer Indy. It's not unlike Louisville but everything seems a bit bigger, pro sports, hosts major events like SB, etc.. and it's closer to Chicago

Haha agreed. Indy is what it is: a sports centric city of about 1.8 million. Love it or hate it.

I'm not sure that Louisville is going to get quite the same representation in the Indianapolis forum though. If this had been placed in the Louisville forum I would be willing to bet the poll results and response would be quite the opposite.

I agree, if you post it in the Indy forum, Indy is bound to win. If you post it in the Louisville Forum, Louisville would win.

for a real unbiased opinion, post it in the St Louis and/or Cinncinatti forum and see which town gets the most votes.

OR, and I know this is wild, you could post it in both the Indianapolis and the Louisville forum. Consider what is said, and draw your own conclusion.
