A lot of blue collar jobs. GE, Whirlpool, Toyota, etc... The downtown is a ghost town. The city revolves around the highschools and highschool sports. And somewhat around the 2 colleges.

A good city for families, but not a great place if you are younger. I grew up there til I went to college at IU when I was 18. We were always bored and now I am 24 and don't really want to go back because there is not much to do there.

50 years ago, Evansville was a busting industrial town. Now that many of these plants and factories have closed, central Evansville is pretty much dead and people have moved into Warrick County to the east (Newburgh, Boonville) and Posey County to the west where all of the newer developments are. My uncle lives closer to downtown and is desperately trying to move to Newburgh to be close to my grandfather because his neighborhood has gotten so "bad." As mentioned above, the town revolves around high school sports, Harrison High School in particular. Essentially when you drive down the Lloyd Expressway (not at all an expressway actually), there is a significant change from new to old and abandoned when you cross over the Green River Road bridge heading west towards downtown. It's sad actually because this city had a lot of potential. Here's a link to the Evansville page on city-data:

No offense, but Harrison High school is hardly the center of Evansville's high school sports universe. You would be laughed out of town for saying something like that.

The point I was trying to make was that high school athletics are a major part of that town. Whenever I'm over there, I always seem to hear about HHS games going on or the score from the night before. I never hear about RHS or NHS...

Evansville, IN is a city in trouble. A lot of lay offs and not a lot of opportunities. Last I heard, they dismantled there unemployment because businesses said they could not afford to pay the premiums. There is a lot of crime there but not a lot of crime is reported. Mostly a red neck area. Racists and klan definitely in Evansville, IN even though they have a small minority group (10 to 12 percent). Racial tensions are boiling just under the all white fluffy surface. A little black kid was hung in a school in Evansville, the white (racist KKK) teacher said he was depressed and hung himself. He was obviously murdered but it appears no justice has been done for him so far.
