my friend and I are arguing about it, and she thinks it’s “I am in downtown”… but I have never heard anyone say that. She is also not the greatest with grammar, so I think I’m right… am I?
I am downtown would be correct. You don’t put “in” before a noun but before a pronoun. eg: I am in New York. However if you put “in” before a noun you would have to add another prepositon. For eg: I am in the downtown area.
I am downtown is correct.
But you could say something like – I am in downtown Chicago.
Depends on the context.
You are more correct. If she were to say, “I am in THE downtown, she could be correct, too.
I am downtown.
the second one is correct.
im in the hood
