"We love the homes, the walkability, the sense of community, IHM and the easy access to so many outstanding small businesses and restaurants."
"I love being in a historic neighborhood that is walkable and full of character. We chose Meridian-Kessler as the place to start our family."
"As a life-long resident of MKNA, I am thrilled with the diversity of neighbors and the renewal of MKNA as well as the surrounding areas. New and old neighbors are forming wonderful relationships that strengthen our neighborhood. I particularly enjoy the Home Tour which highlights our vast variety of architecture (residential and commercial) and celebrates the history of MKNA."
"What I love most about Meridian-Kessler are the neighbors. As you drive through out neighborhood you can see the diversity in the homes which is very similar to the diversity to our neighbors, all who are trying to find ways to make Meridian Kessler a better place to live, work and play."
"I have enjoyed getting to know neighbors who serve on the MKNA Board. The energy is contagious working together for a common cause. I especially enjoy getting to know our young professionals who bring a new energy to the group."
"I love living in Meridian-Kessler because it's such a diverse community, with so much to do. We live in a particularly walkable part of the neighborhood, which makes raising a family even more wonderful."
"What's not to love? From the architecture to the people - variety is at it's best here in MK! We love that! We've lived in cookie-cutter neighborhoods, and that was fine, yet my husband and I much prefer the uniqueness all around us. The other thing we love is the walkability. We meet so many people. Front porches make that possible too. We've lived in some pretty amazing places throughout this country, and Indianapolis' Meridian-Kessler neighborhood has, by far, been the best for us! "
"I love MK's diversity from housing to businesses to trees & sidewalks! I love the way our neighbors care for and are involved in the area. We are proud of and dedicated to preserving a safe & friendly place to live."
