We are a neighborhood
rich in community resources, and full of neighborhood pride. Within our streets you will find a diverse mix of residents, families, artists, and businesses. From historic homes, to modern cottages and bungalows, there’s a home to fit your needs! We are home to the Spades Park library branch (a historic Carnegie Library), the landmark Whittier School (now Whittier Place apartments) and our own Fletcher Park, which is a part of the Kessler Parks and Boulevards NPS National Register of Historic Places. Commercial development is in progress both within the immense multi-purpose space of the Circle City Industrial Complex and also along 10th Street.
We are close to downtown
yet retain a true neighborhood feeling. Our southwestern border at 10th and Mass sits at the gateway to the Near Eastside from downtown Indy! We are within walking distance to Mass Ave’s booming cultural district and the Pogues Run Trail running through our neighborhood is a quick connection to both the Monon Trail and the Cultural Trail. Spades Park sits to our north. Our neighborhood is proud to be a part of the Near Eastside group of organized neighborhoods. We are just north of Cottage Home, St. Clair Place and Woodruff Place neighborhoods and just west of Springdale Neighborhood.
We are a community
of people who care about community. Our organization is actively engaged in the urban renewal and community development of the Near Eastside.
You can often find our members participating in area events like the Great Indy Clean Up, FEAST of Lanterns, Pogues Run Reconnecting to Our Waterways and more.
