I've lived in the twin cities for 20 years now but I just recently discovered the joy of walking to the middle of Lake Calhoun in midwinter. It is an interesting form of urban solitude. In the center of the lake you are surrounded by the city and can see it but you can't hear it. Soundwise it is like being in the country, all I could hear were birds and the planes overhead. After 15 minutes I started to get that "up north" decompression relaxation feeling. After about 45 minutes it was complete. On a monday afternoon there were only 3 other people on the lake, 2 icefishermen and a girl riding her bike in circles.

Minneapolis was built to function like a giant car-driven metropolis. Just take a gander at the maps of both cities, you will find that the grid/highway structure of Minneapolis most closely resembles LA, more so than other US cities of similar size to Minneapolis.

10/10! I just simply love this city's skyline! It may not be very extense, but it is without a doubt one of the most attractive skylines in the US.

Did a bunch of your postings disappear? Where's the one you posted with the Mendota Bridge in the foreground?

I think you should try looking in the St. Paul thread.

Man...how I miss the Mary Tyler Moore show in the 70's. I lived in a small town in the state of Minas Gerais and never lost an episod. It was watching that show that I heard the name Minneapolis for the first time. I sounds great in Portuguese Language ears: MINNEAPOLIS, MINNESOTA...sounds like velvet...I'm becoming old...

Here is a somewhat nostalgic view (source) of how the Minneapolis skyline could have looked like in the near future if all of the plans for new towers came to realization.

Three new towers were to fill in the skyline, the biggest of which is a proposed 1000-footer(w/ its design reminiscent of another recent tower in midtown Atlanta) on the TCF Bank site. The other two are The Nicollet on the left and the 401 on the right. However, with the commercial market the way it is, I think we'll be waiting a while for those to be realized - if at all.
