    In or not?

    Do I need the "IN" in the following sentence? Thank you for your help.

    - What time will we meet (in) Downtown tomorrow?

    I think you needn't.

    I wouldn't use a preposition there either.

    Omitting the preposition would make your reply informal

    Not really, because 'downtown' is an approximate area, not a defined administrative part of a city (in most cases).
