A new outlook for a decrepit Indianapolis neighborhood

Planners and developers aspire to revitalize the most contaminated neighborhood in Indianapolis into a success story.

Just a few minutes northeast of vibrant Monument Circle lurks the most notorious graveyard of Indianapolis' industrial heyday.

Step to 22nd Street and the Monon Trail, look half a mile in all directions, and you'll survey at least 70 of the city's 500 abandoned commercial and industrial sites. It's the greatest concentration of brownfields in the city.

The area doesn't have a name, per se, in that it spills across several neighborhoods, such as King Park and Martindale-Brightwood.
