    Some quality potential CBD locations across the street, too: 20200915_091008.jpg20200915_091015.jpg

        Is that close to the Taco Bell where a driver got robbed a few years ago?

        West of the Speedway on 16th/Georgetown is a little shopworn in places.

        East? I try not to go East if at all possible.

        Locals feel free to tell me its not as bad as I think it is.

            It is east of the Speedway across the tracks. I try not to stop until I get to Long's Donuts. It's not a great neighborhood but it's not like the Combat Zone in Detroit either.

              Buy the place and fix it up. Be the first to gentrify.
              Example: E. 10th and Woodruff Place, city chef celeb Jonathon Brooks goes to an old gas station garage. Tah dah, the neighborhood is rising from the ashes. Well, sorta. It wasn’t in ashes. People told me Speedway Main Street would fail. Nope. It can happen here too.

                In Turn13's picture of CBD locations the fenced in lot to the right is the Sport Spot. There is a bar under the same roof. Immediately east of that bar is the infamous former Taco Bell.

                  I'm all for acquiring it and turning it into the Turn 13 Cabaret.....A better name than Club Venus. 😀

                    Buy it and revive another defunct Speedway area landmark...the Wild Cherry.
                    You have the IndyCar you deserve.

                      I fear though that the location is enough to dissuade any investor. If it had been on the other side of the railroad tracks....excuse the cliché, but nevertheless descriptive...it might have more potential to thrive and survive. Plus with all the popular establishments along Main Street, the former location of the White Front is too far away to draw a connection to that area.

                          Was watching one of the crime shows last year. Much to my surprise there was a murder in the close to Club Venus in the early morning at 5:30 or so. The police downloaded the parking lot video and caught the guy.

                            That was its most recent business. Immediately after the White Front closed it was turned into a gay bar. Made for an awkward May when the Harley crowd showed up unaware.

                                Nathan Trapuzzano, 24, was murdered in the parking lot of the tire store just east of the former White Front on April 1, 2014, while out for his morning walk. His only child was born three weeks after his death. His assailant - 16 at the time of the murder, 18 at his sentencing - showed no remorse when Nathan's widow said she forgave him at his sentencing hearing. With time off for good behavior, he will be eligible for parole in 2047.
