"A single round-trip flight between Chicago and Frankfurt, Germany burns about 3.5 tons of carbon dioxide--that's about what a medium-sized car in the United States burns for an entire year."

Excellent photos! I like Indianapolis; it has become a great place to visit.
In the sixties, much of downtown gave the same impression as photos of Post-WWII East European cities. It was drab, run-down, and dirty, and the great memorial structures and public spaces were tired-looking and unkempt.
There's a great sense of vitality there now, especially in the summer. The Canal and White River State Park, with museums, open greenspace, and a beautiful downtown zoo, attract a lot of visitors, and new state government buildings have followed the concepts of formal, planned layout that already was part of the city's design.
The glassed-in space at the top of the Soldiers' and Sailors' Monument on the Circle is an observation deck acessed by a tiny elevator. It provides some interesting overviews of the central downtown.
Getting thrown out of railroad stations since 1979!

Downtown Indy is rather nice. I used to head there every summer from 2001-2004 and would spend a weekend in downtown. I always had a good time. Too bad downtown Columbus can't get its act together to produce a worthwhile destination similar to what Indy's been able to accomplish.
