I saw that pic in the Star Tribune last week....

Did you know where those new houses in the pic used to be public housing projects that Minneapolis tore down?

LOL!! 41 people have given the skyline 3 or less?
Let me guess who these people might be. Chances are they fit into one or a combination of the following categories:

The person(s)
a) is/are extremely jealous of MPLS.
b) know(s) very little about architecture (MPLS. has been voted as one of the most admired cities in N.A. for its architecture)
c) reside(s) in the southeast part of the U.S.
d) has registered under numerous usernames
d) is/are really stupid.

Simply gorgeous city! Without a doubt one of the most stunning skylines in America! The individual buildings are great and they work well as an ensemble.
Big time 10/10!!!

I'm obviously biased as well, but Mpls has an awesome skyline in my opinion: 9.5 -- there's still room to grow.

That's the IDS tower, it's pretty old. It was built in the early 70s believe it or not.
