2 Indy neighborhoods named among coolest streets in North America

Indianapolis is home to 2 percent of the coolest neighborhoods in North America according to a new survey from real estate services firm Cushman & Wakefield.

Now, we didn't make the ranked list of 15 coolest streets -- those honors belonged to places like Sunset Park, Brooklyn, Logan Square, Chicago, and Over-the-Rhine, Cincinnati. But both Fletcher Place/Virgina Ave. and Mass. Ave. made the full list of 100.

Each neighborhood was ranked using the "Hip-O-Meter," which is in and of itself possibly the uncoolest name for anything ever. Real estate professionals across the continent were sent a survey and asked to rank neighborhoods based on a variety of factors, including livability and retail, retail and residential rents and demographics.

Mass. Ave. was listed as "still cool, but going mainstream." It ranked highest -- four on a five-point scale -- in diversity, food, nightlife and arts. It floundered with a two in the category of access to higher education.
Fountain Square/Virginia Avenue, the land of beard oil and kale, was listed as "up and coming, the next big thing." It netted fours in bike friendliness, music and vintage/thrift stores, but received twos in walkability, public transit and access to higher education.
