Is it grammatically correct to say “I am downtown” or “I am in downtown”?

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 in Downtown” is correct as it denotes a particular place. You wouldn’t say “I am America”, right? You would say “I am in America”. If you want to say “I am downtown”, you have to say, “I am somewhere downtown”.

    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.
