Indianapolis from January until now

These are from all over the city, mainly Downtown, Irvington, Garfield Park, Babe Denny, Childrens' Museum area (does anyone know what this neighborhood is called?), St. Joe's, and Ransom Place. Please be patient, there's a ton of pics.

Excellent collection of photos! I was having fun trying to guess the neighborhood for each.

I'm not sure the name of the Children's Museum area either. There's some wonderful houses in that area that have fallen on hard times. I wonder if that area is going to see development any time soon.

you know, our City is pretty nice looking...considering many "haters" on here would like you to believe that downtown has a CP Morgan subdivision with cul-de-sacs and front-load garages.

Unless I'm mistaken, those are shots of Ransom Place from the Clarian People Mover.

Wow...

Most people consider his glass work to be kind of ingenious--I'm proud to have his work here.

are the row/town homes in indy mostly integrated into neighborhoods of single unit homes, or are there entire neighborhoods dominated by these?

CorrND-

There has been scaffolding around that building for 2 years now...they even tore a portion down. What they plan to do, though, remains a mystery. I assumed it was being converted to lofts, as it would have a great views.

The building is being used for storage I believe.

Almost 100% of Indy's neighborhoods are made up of single family homes. Most single family homes are bungalows, with the exception of the Northside, which is mostly American Foursquare (most neighborhoods have some American Foursquare homes). Indy's only real rowhouse neighborhood is St. Joseph's, which is presented in this thread. The Near Northside and Meridian-Kessler (as well as some Eastside neighborhoods) have a few rowhouses, but they're non-single family residentials are usually 5-6 story brick apartments.

I've read that the Eastside had a good number of rowhouses, until they were demolished to make way for the interstate.

I don't think I've ever come across someone who doesn't like Chihuly glass. I love it, personally.

^ Funny you should mention that, I'm attemping to do that right now using Window's Live Local Maps. Unfourtunatly, Indianapolis' neighborhood boundaries aren't really set or official (there's a lot of gaps between neighborhoods). Also, since the city area is so large, there's some undeveloped land and suburban development.

The map I'm creating is only inside 465.

Nah, I dont care for the glass. I think its kinda ugly. Once again, nice pics. Someone really should post a map of Indy neighborhoods and some pictures from each. In fact I will get started on that right now.
