Thanks for these pics Somnifor! Even though I haven't been in the US, it seems surprisingly familiar or at least exactly what I expected to see. Maybe due to that cultural influence (comics, movies etc)

What's this? It looks even more familiar

That is the Minneapolis Institue of Art, one of the two big art museums in the city. It's a nice museum.

nice thread. minneapolis and st paul are alot more artsy than i expected. nice graffiti. only thing i would say to improve the thread is a little more commentary about where your at (especially good places to eat) and some night shots of the city.

I haven't posted in this thread in a while but I have some new photos. These are all from Northeast Minneapolis which is the area directly across the Mississippi from downtown. This was originally the village of St Anthony which is actually older than the settlement on the downtown side of the river, the two merged in the early days of the city.

It has always struck me that Minneapolis is one of the most inaccurately stereotyped cities in the US. I think this is because it is so far away from the population centers of both coasts that most people have never been here and don't know much about it. They tend to plug in their stereotypes of the Midwest and add cold.

In the '80s when the rest of the country was turning hard to the right Minneapolis had a large counterculture centered around punk rock and DIY culture. This was actually the thing that caused me (and a lot of other people) to move here back then. While that has pretty much run it's course the DIY approach to culture and large creative community remain and are major drivers in the way the city has evolved.

Thanks for the explanation. Now I can understand that “Pink Hobo” name.

Nice pictures again. Does this St. Anthony area still have a little bit of its village feel, or does it feel like any other neighborhood in Minneapolis?
