Crown Hill is a neighborhood on the near Northside of Indianapolis. The neighborhood is named for Crown Hill, the steepest hill in Indianapolis. Contrary to popular belief, the neighborhood is not named after the cemetery that bears the same name (See also: Crown Hill Cemetery.)
Its boundaries consist of: 38th Street on the North, West 30th Street on the South, Martin Luther King Jr. Street on the West, and Meridian Street on the East. It is a participant of the Weed and Seed organization, which aims to combat high-crime neighborhoods in Indianapolis.
Recently, this area has become a target for revitalization. Like many inner-city Indianapolis neighborhoods, blight, urban decay, and crime have plagued this area for years.
