“I Myself a Citizen of No Mean City”
Indianapolis is anything but mean or average. And No Mean City is a citizens’ guide to our community, culture, schools, and housing in Marion County that illustrates why. It’s a rich online portal of neighborhood and school information. It dives into the art scene, culture and so much more with stories about the real people who live, work in play in Indianapolis – the heart of the central Indiana region. On the portal you can take a quiz to find your most compatible neighborhoods and learn about unique and surprising people and happenings transpiring right here. As they say, the best is just hiding in plain sight.

I am, myself, a citizen of no mean city” are the words of former Mayor Charles Bookwalter. He used that phrase while Mayor of Indianapolis in 1909 and today the cornerstone of Old City Hall at Alabama and Ohio Streets in downtown Indy bears this inscription.

You can get lost in the narrative of your town in this extensive portal. Spend some time with No Mean City. You’ll be glad you did. And share it with friends far and wide. Locals will feel the pride of their home as they explore the site and those unfamiliar with Indianapolis will be truly enlightened.
