    5000 block of 23rd St ? ! ! Safe for my wife ?

    My wife has been talked into looking at a granite supplier for remodeling our bathroom. The place is in the 5000 block of 23rd St. what kind of an area is this ? Safe for her and a girlfriend to go to by themselves ?

    East or West 23rd? And I assume you're talking about Indy?

    I'm assuming they're going to a business during the day. From the Google street view, it looks like a wide open industrial district.


    I don't live in in Indy, but no where (in Indy) can be _that_ bad.


    I'd rather my wife goes there, rather than some supplier located next to an outlet mall.

    Okay, that's right near 23rd and Emerson. Should be fine in the day time.

    If you live in Detroit or Oakland or Kabul its not that bad.

    Time to get the wife enrolled in some training classes. Or wait until Saturday and go with her if you’re that concerned. I avoid Indy as much as possible, but during the day the trash is usually sleeping off their hijinks from the night before.

    I have no issue going anywhere in the city during the day, and most places at night.

    The only thing that mildly concerns me is people busting the windows in my car to steal nick nacks. That is really the only sort of random violence you could be involved in.

    I will say that when you dig into nearly all of the shootings involve people who know each other and are involved in criminal enterprise. That is why those don't make the news, but when someone's home is invaded, you'll hear about that.

    10 people have been killed this month, and the overwhelming response has been...meh.

    This should give you a good idea of places to avoid at night.

    As been said, go earlier in the day during sun up time and they should be fine. That is the edge of not real good area.

    It's all true!!! The Boogieman IS real, and you found him!!!
