The best place to live in in Indiana, but only if you have money. If you're poor, go live in IPS or Warren Twp. Carmel is also better than its surrounding subarbs, Fishers, Zionsville, and Westfield. They often think we Carmelites are snobs when they're the ones whom are dissing everyone.
A small town located just north of Indianapolis, Carmel was created so that, after integration, white people wouldn't have to be around blacks. Sad, but true. Since then, Carmel hasn't changed much. Carmel is a rich community, with most of the adults living there working at Eli Lilly, a large drug company. Property values are high for the area; it's a way of saying "No Blue-Collar citizens allowed". The town is also home to Carmel High School, a school of about 4,000 students. Of those 4,000 there can't be more than 150 black kids. Once again, sad but true.
1:Where you from, dawg?
2:Carmel, Indiana. Born & raised.
1:Dude! your parents worked at Lilly?
A city that is a north suburb of Indianapolis, this city is one of the wealthiest in the Indianapolis area. However, the residents live in a huge bubble in more ways than one. To start, they are rich...FOR INDIANA...these residents like to brag about the new mansions they had built for $500,000 when that same amount would barely get them a 30 year old Quad-level in a middle-class Chicago suburb (including some towns in Northwest Indiana). Also, the city is deeply in debt because of constant construction and upgrades that they cannot afford...but it is about "maintaining the image" of their city...I guess it matches the American Dream though: debt, debt, and more debt! The schools are good, especially the high school, but it is huge (almost 4,000 students) and everyone refuses to build a new high school for fear that it will divide the community and shut down the athletic powerhouse that the high school is. The wealthiest residents are either residents who are related to wealthy Indianapolis families that have been around for hundreds of years, or Chicago suburb transplants. Native Hoosiers that move to Carmel from one of the townships are NOT rich but think they are because they now have a Carmel address...oh, and their boys basketball team likes to rape other boys too...classy...
Have you ever been to Carmel, Indiana? It is basically like the Naperville of Indiana except newer, not as wealthy, and just shittier.
