Indianapolis Gets Urban
Additions included a convention center, a handful of museums, and other amenities that Litt says are very impressive.
He writes, "Today, when you visit Indianapolis, you see the fruit of decades of consistent effort in the pursuit of a vision that has turned Midwestern city with a reputation for blandness into a showcase of city planning and urban design."
On the downside, Litt sees a number of problems with the streetscape.
"Most downtown streets are one-way, which makes the entire city center more hospitable to fast-moving cars than pedestrians."
