That is a great pic of Lake Calhoun & Lake of the Isles.

I live downtown and often ride my bike around the lakes. Lake Harriet included also.


Minneapolis ROCKS!


and (Austin) Minnesota is home of SPAM!

Those ghetto apartments that look like they are too tall for their own structural integrity bother me. (The brown ones with the wierd multi-colored panels)

(I'm not sure if they're actually ghetto or not, but w/e)

These? The Crack Stacks? LMAO have you been to Minneapolis? I went to the U of MN and we always joke around about those buildings. They were supposed to be really nice back in the 1970's but now have turned into something of a joke.

Yes, those ones. When I go on 35W or 94... wow it bothers me. It ruins the backdrop of the anti-septic glassy skyscrapers further into Minneapolis. Do ghetto people live in them? "Crack stacks", heh.

Oh, and I go to Minneapolis just about once every two weeks.

Minneapolis has a great skyline. I used to live in MN... Driving from Roseville to Minneapolis opened up such a great skyline.
