People in Indiana — 10 Comments

  1. Yup, that’s Indiana. Lived there for a grand total of one year of
    Richard’s grad school at Purdue. Tippecanoe Mall and Tyler Too plaza
    across the street from it–good place to run into your neighbors on a
    summer day if they don’t have air conditioning either, but the mall does.

  2. I think they may get rides from friends? I saw no bicycles at all. I saw no buses. I did see a lot of parking spaces. There are allegedly 35,xxx people here. Not huge, but not really tiny either.

  3. You have highlighted something about the US that I found on my few trips that really irked me – the complete lack of walkability.

  4. I have married friends from college who live in Chicago – They have grown kids and are grandparents… are you in need of any local contacts there?

  5. This is a description, which could easily describe most parts of the USA, Atlanta, Omaha, and numerous other places, once you leave the inner city. It is only the older and urban residential areas, fortunately including much of Chicago, which have public transit systems and significant walkable neighborhoods. There are, of course, also places in Indiana, where there are sidewalks, but the suburbs and ex-urbs like Lake County, near Chicago are not the place to expect pedestrian-friendly development. These are all places whose growth was planned in the age of automobiles and 50 cent per gallon or less gasoline.

  7. How funny I should find your blog today! I followed a comment you posted about a Kauni cardigan I am researching.
    I live in rural Indiana, am familiar with the town you are in, but am thankful ours is walkable. Had to drop off the car to be fixed cross-town and walk home before the school bus made it here!
    Happy knitting, and welcome back to the States!
    (Did you ever do the Kauni sweater?)

  8. Any doubt as to why Americans are so fat??

    And why I never see morbid obesity when I go home to New York City??
