Nice tour of an often overlooked city. There are some pretty impressive structures there.

We used to go up to Indianapolis all the time for weekend trips (its only 2 hours from Cincinnati), and after looking at these photos, I kinda regret not taking in more of the city when I used to go there

Great tour. Makes me wonder what Indianapolis was like before the auto took over. Must have been beautiful.

I see Indy's whale wall!

Due to tme constraints, there was much of the cty I didn't see when I was there a few years back. It looks, I guess, a bit different - more seasoned than I thought.

Thanks for the views.

strange city. it has these mammoth monumental aspects, but still seems pretty thin on the ground.

Good stuff, from some vantage points that not everyone takes the time to find.

Indianapolis has a grand and monumental center.



The World War Memorial was dedicated in 1928 to the memory of those who fought in The War to End All Wars (WWI). A lot of people photograph it but few take the time to go inside, and they should. It's an unaltered and elegant Art Deco temple. The central portion is one vast memorial shrine that reaches from about one storey above the podium, all the way to the top of the structure. After many years of visits, I still find it awe-inspiring. It's accessed by a pair of narrow stairways from off the entrance-level hall. Photography is permitted inside the building.

The observation deck at the top of the Soldiers' and Sailors' Monument (the tower at the center of the Circle) is undergoing renovation now, but when it's open a tiny elevator takes you almost to the top and then a narrow, winding stairway takes you the rest of the way. There are some neat views of downtown from there.

I hope this was taken on a weekend, otherwise the desolation would kill me if I lived there.
