Big Fish on Virginia Avenue

The southeast part of town, about a mile from the center
 of downtown Indy, has seen a large amount of restoration, 
renovation, and development in recent years.
I had occasion to visit one of the neighborhoods earlier
this week and was tempted to just set up
homekeeping right then and there.

The buildings are a mixture of restored storefronts 
and contemporary architecture. The result is a pleasant
neighborhood of businesses, residences, and
restaurants. For a number of reasons, it has always
been a dream fantasy of mine to live in a place
that was an old storefront with living quarters
just above, much like those shown below.

One day soon, before the weather turns cold,
I am going to get a bicycle to explore
the neighborhood to see whether such a home
would be possible for me.
It's right on the bus line, surrounded by little
restaurants, galleries, and coffee shops.
What's not to like?

It does look like a pleasant neighbourhood.

You can get one of those yellow "Pacers" bikes - they are not just for tourists.

I will be using one of the Pacers' bikes. One of my photos won a prize from ROW. That prize is a year's pass for use of the bikes. Yay!
