I really think Indy is just over looked, Louisville in the South, Cincinnati and Columbus in the East, Detroit and Fort Wayne in the North East and Chicago in the North West, it really doesn't have enough room to grow because the people in the North, South and East have larger and closer options to go to.

Indianapolis is overlooked. Even before joining City-Data I heard more about Omaha than Indianapolis.

we can tell that your a looney! hmmmm

your totally missing the point, indianapolis was chossen by the US government because its central location, and they built all kinds of roads from across the state directing to Indianapolis, it was found around the year 1820, and thats its history, and thats why i say its culture revoles around the name, "circle city" and i was explaining why its called that. not hard to understand

Go Ne, indy is actually growing quite rapidly, especially the northern parts in hamilton county, carmel and fishers has grown about %20 each and they look like any suburban neighborhood you could find in just about any metropolitan area. the indianapolis metro is growing more than you realize, mostly because of the high tech growth. the city of Indianapolis is bigger than all of those cities you mentioned other than chicago and detroit

Well, according to wikipedia, its the eighth largest metro in the midwest, but, what I meant was, that they have other options that they are closer to so they wouldn't have to drive all the way to Indy, although suburban growth isn't the best thing, It would be better if you had downtown growth with Condos and apartments, or some new retail and restaurants down there too, local preferably.

ill agree that detroit has alot to offer especially the downtown and it is a little more exciting to visit, but i would much rather live in Indy mainly because of safer neighborhoods

Indy does have growth downtown. But seriously, you didn't even know about our 2 fortune 500 companies, why are you in here talking like you have any idea about Indianapolis? You have demonstrated a couple of times that you don't have a clue.

ya theres no doubt that indy could reconstruct its downtown for better urban ivestment, ill agree with you on that, i just get a little ticked off when people say indy sucks because its flat or whatever of somesort, ill get that way if people say omaha sucks to.

Thanks, I would rep you, but it won't let me, and I agree with you, saying a city sucks because its flat is just stupid.
