Well I been here for 20+ years, native here. I am trying to get out ! The only good thing is the cost of living is dirt cheap but the bad thing is that you will probably want to cut your arm off before living here anyways. We are better than Detroit and places like that. Visit Indy and leave as quick as you came !
First Indy is great if you have no kids and want to live cheap! don't like arts or culture and most places are better if you are rich Indy is no exception. In other words with if you want your children to live in a dry Vanilla wasteland then go ahead. The schools unless your in Hamilton county are downright awful.IPS your child will get a great education in how to be a thug or redneck brat. The townships are the same with little better outcome in Washington townships.There is very little art and museums here only a couple and major operas and art presentations. The nightlife is dismal everything closes around 1am and you basically have two options broad ripple which is a mini strip for drunk college kids or downtown which is a cesspool of thugs or middle or upper class white men trying to pick up a drunk college student see above ! see blond girl kidnappings in the Indianapolis news! The college brats think their crummy IU degree is like Yale or something! All the art money here is wasted on the colts ! The weather is rotten during the winter time so another reason to stay away. The jobs suck don't get me started even for a programmer they insult you offering 10.00 an hour. Everything is divided if you are black come ghetto and rude or you will be an outcast. If you are white come rich and pretty or stay where you are. Oh Hispanics don't bother please you will be automatically said to be illegal. Hamilton county is the only mildly liveable part of the state and expect extreme racism there if you aren't white. The guys are losers and fat but they want a supermodel. They have no goals but to work at the gas station. Many of the women are the same way The Public transport is awful for a city of this size. You will never get home waiting on a bus and forget walking! Indy is walk a phobic no wonder everyone is out of shape. This isn't the place to try to make it in life in it is a great place once you're about 50 or you're kids are just about out of high school and made a decent living. Stay away !
