Because Minneapolis is sometimes being referred to as "Frankfurt of the Midwest"

Why is it called that? I understand that Minnesota is heavily of German stock, but why not Berlin or Essen?

Good point. I didn't realize it was a skyline reference, but that makes sense.

From St Anthony Parkway and Ridgeway Parkway Foreground Bldg is CW lofts. Easy parking again from wayside park. Makes beautiful night shot. Or good day shot on a smog free day.



Looking to the South East from this really big hill off of Lyndale and 29th avenue.

Well, I think it is. Atlanta looks more like Frankfurt so I don't know what the actual reason is realy.

This is my favorite perspective of downtown, not for the way it shows off the skyline, but the way it shows the density along the Mississippi.

Please continue posting these beautiful photos.
