I just noticed that another envious jerk gave it a 3/10. Why do people have to act like that on message boards?

Too wide streets, motorways and ground parkinglots has no place in a city.

Those wide streets you've mentioned actually serve multiple purposes accomodating spacious sidewalks, bike lanes and BRT lanes, all of which make Minneapolis one of the exemplary transit systems in US.

I dont think its beutiful because it isnt mixed enough and the spaces between the buildings are to large.

This is a great website, just found it through my flickr stats.

I think we've got a pretty decent skyline, I'd say 8/10.

ALWAYS THE OPTIMIST




First time to see the Minneapolis skyline, and i'm impressed! Wish the crowning of the IDS tower could be all glass, and i really like the 225 South Sixth Street. Amazed this skyline is older with all of the taller skyscrapers built over a decade ago....still very modern! 8.5!

Major Deegan...i sense a troll. I've noticed it in the other threads.
