Hi Everyone, I am in t he midst of doing my due diligence for a property in Lawrence Township. Specifically on 31st Pl, which is below the 41st street suggestion that people typically advise for investor in Lawrence Township. Can anyone tell me about the area? Has it improved? Is it still considered "the worst part of Indy?"
Are you refering to 31st and 42nd Street in lawrence township?
pretty solid area. school district is good
@Wei Jie Yang For the most part, 38th St is going to be the township dividing line so anything S of 38th St is going to be Center Township or Warren Township. The only place that I'm aware that there is a 31st St outside of Center township is just E of Arlington Ave. If the home is in Center Township, it will be Indianapolis Public Schools (IPS) which are considered by most people to be the least desirable schools in the area. If you are in the small stretch that crosses in to Warren Township, those schools are better, but not what I would describe as "Good." You can view the school systems for the areas here http://www.stats.indiana.edu/maptools/schooldistrictsmap.asp
That area of Warren (Arlington and 31st St) still has a bit of crime there as well. I wouldn't consider it to be the "worst" part of town by far, but there is a bit of nuisance crime in the area like vandalism, theft, etc.
@Ross Denman nailed it above... ^^^^^^^^^^^
