Review of Indianapolis, Indiana

Do your homework before moving here??
Star Rating - 4/16/2019
Every comment on this feed is true about Indianapolis. I’m just adding my two! This city has jobs yes. Decent housing yes. Public transportation is becoming more convenient. Pot holes galore, DEEP ONES! I mean the ones that literally pisses you off, and they will not reimburse,.if they do it takes MONTHS! The growth is coming from Michigan, and Illinois..BAD NEWS! Multiple murders daily. Shootings every day of the week, especially when we get the first brush of good weather. “Good places” like the Monon Trail, and the newer edition of the Canal downtown is made for people to jog,bike,enjoy nature..and suddenly you get robbed or attacked. Most people are rude, mean, and defensive. Don’t get me wrong there are nice people here, but to me personally it’s not worth it if you can’t really enjoy where you live.

Murders daily? Hmmm...another fact scientist. There is a reason it is called Hoosier Hospitality. Maybe you need to find better friends.

i've lived in indiana my whole life and indy for 17 years. the roads were shit when iw as a kid, the roads are shit now. the potholes are horrid and WILL destroy your tires and wheels...and you will have to just pay for it. they city cant even handle basic stuff like keeping the roads in working order. in 1978 they went UNIGOV so city of indy became all of marion county. they PROMISED with the increased taxes they would bring EVERY road in the county up to city, sidewalks, DRAINAGE, curbs....well its 2020 and we live near an old county road that has open drainage, no sidewalks...and it just crumbles apart every 2 years and then you wait another 3 years before they attempt is EVER made to dig it up and make it a proper city streets...and its that way ALL OVER. sure you can live downtown with sidewalks and curbs...but go out a bit and its like being in country with just paved old gravel roads. you also need to know where you are at what times of the day. the daily shootings are all INSIDE the 465 loop...usually at nite...often midnite to 3am and usually near gas stations.
