I'll be relocating from N. California to Central Indianapolis next year for a job & would like some recommendation for places to live. I'm looking at areas along the I-69 corridor between Fort Wayne & Indy. I'm a minorit, educated professional with a liberal bent & hope to find a place to live where I'll feel comfortable. I have no illusions about Indiana but am hoping for the best anyway. Thanks!

personally i would look closer to Indy to be more progressive. There are lots of subdivisons, townhouses, rentals along the corridor close to Indy.

plus you are close to a lot of activities and can access downtown.

If you have no kids, downtown Indy or Broad Ripple are great.

I would identify your interests and then make sure the housing was close.

I will admit there are a lot of things to do in Indy, but Fort Wayne is growing quick. They are doing everything they can to bring in more business in to the area and surrounding areas. Fort Wayne is making Northeastern Indiana a very nice place, I think that without a place like Fort Wayne, Northeast Indiana would be a hole.

Can you suggest a nice neighborhood in Fort Wayne?

I drove into downtown Fort Wayne from the south last week & didn't quite like what I saw.

Downtown Fort Wayne needs a lot of help, they just approved a new downtown renovation to put in a baseball diamond and a plethora of new multiuse buildings, and a parking garage, because there are limited places to park. And if you find one it's probably metered.

But places to live, most people I talk to are looking towards the Southwest area of Fort Wayne. Around Aboite, it's a new annexation, the houses are pretty pricey and it's upscale.

Limited places to park? Sorry, but I'll have to disagree with that. I was on a website, and it was saying how Fort Wayne has TOO MANY parking spaces.

Here's the website:

Yeah we all know the web is 100% correct all the time.

I mean it's not like I wasn't just in downtown fort wayne saturday. Most parking for downtown fort wayne are specific places, people just park there and go wherever. Who wants to be stuck in metered parking? Oh and also, that was from last year times change very fast in fort wayne. One of the big arguments of the harrison square project was for the parking garage because there wasn't enough parking. It would also depend on the time of day, days of the week, and a plethora of other things for them to come to that conclusion. It was all over the local news a few weeks ago. So I guess you know a lot more about Fort Wayne being in Chicago eh?
