I live in “historic” Ft. Ben. While the majority of my college friends quickly found places in other neighborhoods (I’m looking at you, Broad Ripple) I wanted an affordable, but livable single. Too much time in a fraternity house can do that to a person.
Luckily for me, the Ft. Ben area had what I was looking for: single bedroom apartments that wouldn’t fleece my wallet and were just a short commute from my day job. What I didn’t realize is that the Ft. Ben area would be home to incredible growth, as a reuse committee has been guiding development following the closing of the army base in 1995… Translated, I am walking distance from a microbrewery, Indianapolis’s own Triton Brewing Company.
