I have to agree with the op, I was recently in Indianapolis for the first time in my adult life and I did not like it at all, it was just blah, nothing really unique about it.

San Jose! It's a city without a active downtown core. People go to Los Gatos and Santana Row for downtown experiences. It's an overgrown suburb! The cost of living is too high, period.

Actually, Indianapolis skyline from the interstate is rather decent but thats about the best part of Indy is going through on Interstate 70.

I dont know what it is but the combination of horrible architecture covering a majority of the city, abandoned lots it seems rural in alot of areas, very high violent crime rates, horrible public transit.

The downtown is clean, but it was not vibrant at all. The neighborhoods I saw adjacent to downtown were fairly run-down, unimpressive with small shacky wooden homes. They had a few brick-apartment buildings on one side of downtown but overall it didnt seem to increase the lack of urbanity in Indianapolis.

Overall, a very unimpressive large city. Its not unique and a violent crime cesspool. Its just too bad Indianapolis never went the direction of Louisville an hour and a half down the road.

Cincinnati the other city in the triangle has other major urban problems on the same level as Indianapolis but its a much more unique city, with first-class urbanity, neighborhoods and economically better.

the worst is detroit, mi
