"Revived Thoroughfare through Indy's East-side."

For those of us that have lived on the East Side for nearly our entire lives, we have seen East Washington Street boom in business, and then crest and fall. Cherry Tree Plaza and the Washington Square Mall, which were both once places buzzing with activity, have mostly become obsolete. The mall is anchored by a Target, L.S. Ayres, Sears, and Burlington Coat Factory, because the other major department stores shut down at one point or another. The rest of the mall is littered with no-name beauty stores, obscure clothing stores, and little-known restaurants. However, there is currently construction happening to widen this stretch of US 40, and many new restaurants and businesses have begun to pop up, such as Q'doba's Mexican Grill. The Walmart is in dire need of a staff that cares about their store, as it is often dirty and packed to the extreme, especially around the first of the month. Overall, there is work being done to improve and revive this area, but it's suffering at the moment.
