Nothing gives me more satisfaction than being RIGHT! For instance, I've always thought that North Meridian Street, with its stunning Indianapolis historic homes, beautiful lots, and early 1900s charm, is one of the prettiest neighborhoods I've seen. And I'm right! (Not that anyone has ever argued this point with me.) Forbes magazine recently named North Meridian Street to its top 10 list of America's Prettiest Neighborhoods, where it joins some impressive addresses including Sonoma, California and Celebration, Florida. Glimpses of the grand homes, built mostly in the 1920s when North Meridian Street was considered the 'burbs, leaves onlookers wanting more. "You can't help but gaze at them and wonder what it would be like to live there," writes Midwest Living travel editor Kendra Williams. And I'm here to tell you, she's right!
