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
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.
