It looks like a place I'd really enjoy visiting. Thanks for posting them. I was in northern Minnesota, but never made it as far south as Minneapolis. You've got a great looking downtown. These 2 are fabulous and very flattering. That market looks great, the paving is very good, and the base of that tower across the street works well. That jogging path on the bridge is well designed and offers a great vista.

How on Earth did 10% of voters say 3 or less??? Minneapolis has a great skyline, especially for such a flat city.

There are always some votes from people that don't like cities, tall buildings, etc. I wouldn't pay much attention to it.

I didn't know that Minneapolis had street cars. How extensive is it?

Technically they are light rail trains, two coaches each. Right now there is only one line - Hiawatha Line. It extends some 19.3 km and connects arguably the three busiest destinations in Minneapolis: the Mall of America, international airport, and the downtown. Additional lines will be coming online in the coming years, however, with the Central Corridor line in the late development and financing stages.
