Um ... I wouldn't word it that way.  (My first reaction was "Are you
nuts?!  They're nowhere near each other!").  I would say: from much of
the US, you won't drive to KWHS in either Indianapolis or New York,
but instead would take a flight, which is likely to be in the
US $250-$300 range if you get the tickets in advance.  So, from the
point of view of travel, it doesn't matter that much for many people
where in the US it is.

I don't know how many people consider themselves to be in "driving
range" of New York versus Indianapolis.
