So I got up early this morning and took some photos. The first three are from Whittier and Lyndale Ave which is the border between Whittier and Uptown.

The rest are from east Lake St and the areas around it which is the poorest part of the southside of Minneapolis.

These are some neighborhood shots of the Macalester-Groveland and Concordia area.

I took a ton of photos in downtown Minneapolis today. I started in Loring Park which is the residential part of southern downtown. This is actually a cheap neighborhood to live in for some reason, although most residents aren't poor and the housing is nice.

These photos are from the riverfront. In the late 19th century this area was the largest flour milling center in the world and was the reason Minneapolis became a city. All of the mills are closed now and the area is full of park land, cultural buildings and high end condos.

Oh wow!, Twin Cities!... I had great times there: It was the place where I felt in love first time. I lived in Kenwood (close to Downtown Minneapolis) and Eagan too.
I hope to see more pics and go back soon.

P.S.: Excuse me if my english sucks.

No need to apologise for that on an international forum. I'vee seen worse around here.
And to Somnifor, please keep posting. I love your photo's and cities but maybe you where already aware of that.

I will be doing this indefinitely. It has become part of my weekly routine. I try to take walks on days off for exercise, I take my camera with me when I do that.

I should do Kenwood soon, it is not that far from where I live and it is full of nice houses.

I LOVE those old homes and apartment blocks! They just don't make them like that anymore! Great photos!

St Paul has a lot of good late victorian architecture, I should take more pictures there.

I took some more photos today. The first is from downtown Minneapolis. The rest are from the Dinkytown neighborhood, which is where the University of Minnesota is located.

Allegedly Bob Dylan lived in the building on the corner:
