Taking the location of Minneapolis and its population into consideration, I would say it has a pretty amazing skyline compared to many others.

9/10

Twin Cities rock, definately in my top five places in the USA. NYC, Chicago, Denver, the Twin Cities, and New Orleans. The first time I saw the skyline I was blown-away, it's very dense and beautiful. The city rocks too.

Check it out yall

Hey guys

I'm from Milwaukee but ain't a hater. Minneapolis is a great city to visit (even though it doesn't have a nightlife )

Anyway, I drove through yesterday to visit some friends at U of Minn. Took a couple pics, hope you like









Peace,
Jai

Though I have to say, it's a bit hard to find a good vantage point to really appreciate the skyline in its entirety...

You're not a hater? You just said that Minneapolis shuts down at 6 pm in another thread.

And compared to Milwaukee, it doesn't have a nightlife? Are you serious?

For a city of under 400,000 has a pretty impressive skyline. I like how the downtown is compact, within walking distance. A few more talls and it'll be a 10. For now, 9.5.

I just arrived in Minneapolis a week ago, and I am truly loving the place. Law school starts on Tuesday, so henceforth, things get VERY SERIOUS!

Well I think it's a nice little compact skyline but I don't find a lot of it's buildings attractive. 6.5/10

Here are a few more of this beautiful city.







Mortar & Pestle welcome to the Twin Cities. For some detailed conversations about Minneapolis & St. Paul check out www.twincityscape.com and go to the forums. There's a ton of construction activity going on and the skyline will only get bigger

ArchMadness...thanks for the welcome. This city is amazing!! A beautiful skyline, but also one of the best downtowns I've ever walked around in...clean, quaint, accessible and quite pleasant. A downtown that is warm and welcoming, rather than cold, boxy and artificial. Where the buildings, structures, streets and skyways lend meaning and energy to the cityscape, rather than a sense of urban loneliness, lack of humanity or unfettered capitalism. I am truly impressed by this place, and am very glad to call it home.

Law school is intense, so I will not be here often, but I will get around to posting some pictures of the city as soon as possible.
