The state capital and largest city of Indiana, and 12th largest in the U.S. (792,000) in a greater metro population of some 1.7 million people and growing. Indy is generally boring if you’re from places like Chicago or New York. But it remains in the same tier of cities like Louisville, Columbus, Cincinnati or Kansas City. It lacks motivation to get anything done—even filling the ungodly number of potholes on roads and widening busy city streets. The city is traditionally basketball crazy--being in Indiana, but with the success of the Colts and Payton Manning of the NFL, they have overshadowed the Pacers. The Super Bowl will even be held in Indianapolis in 2012. But the best thing about the Indy area is that it’s a great place to raise a family, and the cost of living is among the most affordable in the country. There’s a number of nice museums to see--the Childrens’ Museum (the world's largest), the NCAA Hall of Champions, the Indy 500 Hall of Fame Museum, the State Museum and Conner Prarie Settlement; and cultural events to attend (the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra is world renowned). But, unfortunately that’s it. The crime is getting too high with an especially stubbornly-high murder rate. The lack of street lamps and police patrolling the streets is almost unbelievable. This city seems to care more about building stadiums and the like rather than taking care of its residents. Property taxes are also very high. The people are also ignorant. Indianapolis Public Schools (IPS) has the 2nd highest number of dropouts in the country. The city is way behind in technology, but instead tax dollars are spent on useless things like new stadiums just to shown off to other cities. Go to somewhere like a Seattle school, and everyone has iPods and PDAs. Go to Indy, and the people with iPods and PDAs get theirs stolen. Indianapolis is a city that has a lot of potential, but unfortunatly squanders it.
Indianapolis is the largest city in Indiana and 3rd largest in the Midwest, but will never be compared to the Coastal cities or Chicago. It's nice in many respects, but dull in general. It is called Naptown, and deserves the right to be called such.

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!
