Urban Indy hits its 10-year anniversary on April 11th. As that is a Tuesday, I’ve decided to host the gathering on the Saturday after the official date, April 15th. A few years ago, we hosted a construction tour of major downtown projects. This year, I thought it would be interesting to have a bicycle tour of the Near-East Side. It has been greatly overshadowed by places such as Fountain Square and Fall Creek Place, but neighborhoods such as Holy Cross, Englewood, and Cottage Home have been doggedly determined on revitalizing themselves.
I first toured East 10th Street on foot almost 9 years ago. Then I revisited it in 2013. There was quite a bit of progress in that timespan, and there has been even more redevelopment since then. This tour will also hit spots near East Washington Street, and some interesting places between these two arteries.
