just a general rule of Indy Geography thumb Mike 96th Street is the Marion County line when heading north. So if you cross it your in Hamilton County or Boone County.
And yes those areas are very nice. Very Affluent too.

Carmel has a decent number of Asians Americans.

Are you looking for a 1 bedroom or two bedroom? One bedroom for $650-700 will be easy to find. Two bedroom for between $650-700 will be a little tougher. For a 1 bedroom you can live in a nicer area and complex.

I know many of the Carmel Apartments, so if you have one in particular you are looking at

No college students. That is in the Nora area. (Not really 96th and Meridian which is more of a commercial area) - Nora is about 5 minutes (at most) east of 96th and Meridian)

Nora is an interesting part of town. Witin 5-10 minutes you could uncover neighborhoods that have homes worth more than $1M easy. You also have some very middle class niehgborhoods. Plenty of shopping close by.

However there are several apartments in the area and most of the crime in the Nora area comes from those that live in those apartments. Carlisle Court is probably the nicest of the apartment complexes, but a few of the complexes are really bad.

One thing I am 100% sure of in the Indianapolis apartment market. You get what you pay for. Newer apartments will cost you more, apartments in nicer areas will cost you more. if you see a place with great prices there is a reason why the prices are great - either the apartments themselves are not in good condition or the neighborhood is not good. I do not believe there are any real hidden gems. The prices are very accurate reflection of what you get.

You need to decide what is most important to you.

Unemployment rates are 30 day events, you can actually have fewer UE filings and your rate still go up. West 96th St is 99% sfdu with a few townhouses right at 96th and Meridian just west of McDonalds. If you are working NW, there are ample apartments in the area North of 86th St. on the NW side.

As far as jobs in the area, honestly, it depends on her field and where she is willing to work as far as area. If she's in the medical field, she shouldn't have that much of a problem. Granted, you don't want to live NW and end up working on the SE side of town.

You might want to look at Avon or Brownsburg if you work on the NW side of Indy. Both areas are pretty diverse.

Brownsburg is northwest of Indy while Avon is almost directly West. Either would put you within 10-15 min commute to work. The hours you work will also come into play for your commute 8-5pm is busy, busy, busy on NW side. 9am-6pm is busy but not bumper to bumper. Days, evenings or nights would also mean different commute times. If I were to choose right now, I'd move to Brownsburg. I live in a residential area near 56th and Lafayette Rd.
