there's no density. no urbanity. no architecture. no diversity. no FUN/diverse night life. no history. no culture (apart from racing and white people basketball and cornfields). no food (oh what about st. elm's steakhouse??? - pathetic.).

its the "been there done that" of cities. besides indy 500, there's no reason why i would ever make a trip there. crossroads of highways..."OHHH I WANT TO SEE THAT!!!"

it's great for its size (oh and the 700,000 people is load of garbage...a ploy by annexing the whole marion county which is Mostly made of cornfields and suburban houses which in no way constitutes as a city). but come on people of indy, stop making seem like some urban cultural metropolis destination. ITS NOT. detroit, cincy, stl, minneapolis, kc, columbus, even cleveland blow indy to the dust.

Only people from Indy have their own self-prescribed indy fetish, who excite themselves by calling themselves "diverse" when a chop suey restaurant opens up. indiana and indy will continue to be known as the armpit of america, sticking to their cornfields and white people basketball, and will always be mentally stuck in 1950.

there, i said it.
Good to have you back. I missed your rants.

I had a fine time in Indy when I've visited, but I didn't really walk away thinking it was the BEST city in the midwest. It's just a clean, nice, run of the mill city.

Nothing wrong with that.

Everyone needs to calm down, seriously. And learn proper grammar, too.

I'm not apoligizing to chitownwarrior but I am sorry about that everyone else. I let him get to me. I started the thread so I knew I would get someone like him. But the way he was talking ticked me off. Steve-o I do know proper grammar but he made me get ghetto on him.
