    Eastside Reviews

    I like that there is convenient access to bus lines and restaurants, and that other businesses like grocery stores are accessible on the bus line, if someone doesn't have transportation. However, I think my neighborhood is run-down. There are a lot of abandoned buildings, and seems to be a lot of crime in my neighborhood. I would like to see the abandoned buildings and lots repurposed in useful ways, like providing more affordable housing and other resources to the poor community.

    Coming from a resident of five years on the near east side of Indianapolis there have been many ups and downs. As a new resident back in 2013 crime was at an all time high which unfortunately has not changed, I refer to the east side as affordable with pockets of great people and a lot of possibilities. Year by year things get better people get nicer and new buildings/homes bring young professionals which is very exciting. Being in the middle of all the positivity coming around and then a block away from drug and crime activity seems to make me wonder if the historic east side can ever make a come back. I would like to see more police officers, officers who engage with neighbors. More custom homes, restaurants and breweries seem to be a big hit around here right now. The biggest change is getting on the same page and hopefully welcoming the “rift raft” with a positive approach therefore, neighbors safety becomes the number one concern. Right now it is far from.
