Happy New Year to you all.
Removing the dome would require building new homes for the Twins, Vikings and U of M football. There are plenty of proposals as per usual but none of them have passed. I am not a big fan of spending public money for professional sport franchises but it has gotten to the point where the redevelopement potential of the dome site and it's surrounding neighborhoods may outweigh the costs of building new stadiums. The dome is a cancer for that side of downtown. I think we are getting to the point where the sooner the dome is torn down and replaced by a vibrant downtown neighborhood the better off everyone will be. The redevelopement of the Metrodome site may be the best and only good reason for the public to help build new stadia for the Twins and Vikings. The property tax revenues from turning that into the new side of downtown may actually be the best reason to make the stadium thing happen.

By the way, can anyone post the Weisman Museum on this thread as well? I have to tell you that I have been back to Minneapolis for the last 5 years and I have been impressed with the way the University is changing itself now. There are now a lot of nice new buildings on campus.

Actually the photo was taken from the Witch's Hat water tower in Prospect Park. I know because I took it.

I don't know why UMD thinks no buildings have been built in 14 years. We've had 4 30 story buildings built in the past 4 years.

I can't possibly understand the numerous low score votes for this City's skyline. It is very nice and well put together.

I love the Minneapolis Skyline. I really love that picture from near the Stone Arch Bridge at night.

So...I'm going downtown all day friday and I think I'll take some more "close up" pics of the individual buildings and areas, just to give a closer view of the city.
