Judging from a lot of posts on C.D. it's a sad world that every place isn't exactly like NYC. Some people even slam Chicago for not being exactly the same, even though you won't find anything closer in U.S., and the vast majority of people rave about Chicago's own unique culture. A lot of people even prefer it to NY. So I wouldn't get my hopes up that anyone will be raving about Indiana any time soon.

It's a city that has a bit of an identity crisis. Being that Indy is third in population size in the midwest (behind Chicago and Detroit) it should be a world class city but there's an element of small town wanting to keep things like the way they were type attitude among certain folks.

Actually I have heard from experts that there are areas in Indy which are more culturally diverse than any other mid-sized city.

Speaking of Indianapolis proper, and downtown in particular, there seems to be a lot of good news these days:

Downtown has become a magnet for young, educated residents | The Indianapolis Star | indystar.com

City plans 33 miles of new bike lanes this year | The Indianapolis Star | indystar.com

Prob. is Indiana dont have the jobs. look at all the smaller cities in this state, they used to be "rolling in dough" now the manufacturing jobs are gone. they have become nothing more then 3rd world ****holes.

As far as I am concerned, any area more than 10 miles outside of Indianapolis is irrelevant and could be sold to a neighboring state for magic beans. Let's start with Richmond and Muncie, Ohio could use the land.

EDIT: Bloomington and Lafayette can stay. How about this; Marion, Hamilton, Johnson, Hendricks, Monroe, Brown, Batholomew, Tippecanoe, Boone, and Clinton counties can stay. Everyone else, see -ya later!

I think it's a very narrow view that neglects to consider some very nice communities in this state -- places such as Madison, much of Porter and Lake counties, Fort Wayne, and Jasper/Santa Claus. Every state has its crapholes. You have to accept the good with the bad.

I think ddog241 just needs to get out of Anderson like so many have. Shame, but true.

You've clearly not seen the size of the magic beans Ohio is offering for Richmond and Muncie. Word on the street is they'll throw in some sweater vests for Rising Sun abd Jeffersonville. They've been looking to spite Kentucky, the acquisition of land near Loisville will really get under Kentucky's skin.
