1. A city that boasts a large population simply because it has annexed most of its surrounding metro area. (In this case, all of Marion county).

2. A city where the population of the city proper is about the same as its entire metro area. Columbus
If Boston pulled an Indianapolis, it would pick a up a couple million in population.

Supposedly the 12th largest city in the US, but it has annexed nearly everything around it. It has a population of nearly 799, 000, but don't let that fool you. It has a land area of nearly 370 square miles, vs Cincinnati's 78 square miles or Pittsburgh's 59 square miles. Pittsburgh population density - 5000 per square mile, Cincinnati population density - 4300 Indianapolis - 2100 per square mile. This explains why Indy is a hardly a city, but is actually a bunch of annexed suburbs and cornfields. Indianapolis suffers from boring geography and lack of entertainment, but does have a few very good shopping malls. Indianapolis has a very "fake" feel to it, and doesn't feel like a real city the way its surrounding cities of Chicago, Louisville, and Cincinnati do. I recommend that if you are driving north toward indy, keep heading for chicago. If you are driving south toward indy, head toward louisville or Cincy, two much nicer cities with beautiful terrain and better entertainment(OTHER than malls).

Indianapolis is an extreamly shitty city. I have family there and visit about once a year. Every house there is like 60 years old and looks ghetto as hell. The roads suck major ass, pot holes everywhere. Everyone drives like 25 mph because they are afriad their rusted out cars will fall apart when they hit a pot hole. Every vehical there more then 3 years old is completely rusted out and and ghetto as hell. The general population has no class, no job and are the scum of society. Crime is very high. Did I mention all the houses are old and ghetto as hell?
Get a job, paint your ghetto ass house, fix your roads, and get a new goddamn car! Indianapolis sucks!

Complaining that Indianapolis lacks a subway or a ski resort or a beach is like buying a Suburban and complaining about the mileage. It is what it is, which is mostly very good.

Typical complaints:

No culture: Wrong. Visit the Indianapolis Museum of Art, the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra, the opera, the ballet, the Circle Theater, the many universities and colleges with first class cultural opportunities. If you're missing the culture here you aren't looking.

No skyline: Look at the pictures.

No rivers, lakes, greenspaces, etc.: Wrong. The White River flows through the city, as does the Central Canal with miles of crushed gravel path. There are many more miles of connected rail trails. There are two huge lakes on each side of town, one that is home to a lot of motor boat activity, and another that sees a lot of sailing and rowing races. There are many large city parks. And just an hour south is Brown County State Park, home to some of the best mountain biking east of the Mississippi. Look it up.

No diversity: Wrong. Come and look around. If by diversity you mean, there aren't as many jaded too-cool-for-anything-but-NYC posers, then yes, Indianapolis may not be that diverse. But even that population is growing, based on the increasing number of bearded hipster guys riding single speed bikes in girl pants. Even these guys, however, fit in with the rest of us nice, normal, and well-adjusted people.

Indianapolis is not really a "large" city in the traditional sense but is rather, a large, Midwest town with a comfortable quality of life.
