Apartment Looking and Finding…Ugh

Looking for, and, then finding the right apartment is hard! I do not like all these adult responsibilities. Can I not have my cake and eat it too? I guess not. In Indy in the city limits the pool of housing is stagnate or crummy. For the most parts, there are pockets here and there. Those pockets though require an extra $200 a month. I go to work downtown everyday for work, my wife goes to grad school almost dead center in the city limits, near Butler, and our friends are mostly in that area as well.

We are looking for a 2 bedroom 1.5+ bath for maybe $875 or less. For the right apartment in the right location we would maybe spend more. I do not want to be on the east side of town below 70th street, I do not want to be on the west side below 38th street and I really do not want to be further out than Carmel. Am I being picky yes. Is it unreasonable, I do not think. In a city with rising violent crime, protervity and just over all a population that would rather step on your face than look you in the eye I am not interested in living in or near the getto. We are to close as it is. Ahh…well the search continues.

We have found:

Mohawk Hills

Providence On Old Meridian


Summerwood On Towne Line
