Walking All the Streets of Loring Park, Day 2

The day after exploring the western part of the Loring Park neighborhood, I was back for the eastern part, which is to say, everything east of LaSalle Avenue. However, as the route map reveals, I also included some streets in the northwest that I had skipped the previous day. (The two days’ routes repeatedly cross in […]

Fremont Bridge Closure Caps off Crappy Season for Minneapolis Bike Trails

If you’ve ridden the Midtown Greenway through Uptown in the past month, you’ve probably noticed that it’s closed for reconstruction of the Fremont Ave Bridge. The closure began August 28th and is predicted to last 10 or 11 weeks, which if you’re counting, takes it through the end of the fair-weather biking season. The Fremont […]

Walking All the Streets of Loring Park, Day 1

Big houses, bigger apartment buildings, really big churches. Even though there is no direct cause-and-effect linkage, it makes sense that a neighborhood with some dense housing also has a cathedral, a basilica, and four other churches that are of similar grandeur. I saw half those churches on my first of two days walking the Loring […]

The New Hennepin Bus Lanes

Earlier this year Metro Transit and the City of Minneapolis did a demonstration of rush hour bus lanes on Hennepin Avenue between Franklin Avenue and Uptown Transit Station. Bus service has always been extremely slow due to morning backups from I-94 and afternoon backups from Lagoon Avenue. The demo worked just fine, but relied on […]

Walking All the Streets of Southeastern Longfellow

One eats first with one’s eyes. So I ate first (before walking even a single block) and did it with (but not only with) my eyes. And then I proceeded to keep on using my eyes as I wound my way through the remaining corner of the Longfellow neighborhood, everything south of my first walk and east […]

New Bollard Day for 26th Street!

This post was cross-posted from the Our Streets Minneapolis blog. The Our Streets Downtown Protected Bikeways work group would like to thank the City of Minneapolis Public Works employees that recently restored the bollards to 26th Street! Up until a week ago, there were only thirteen plastic bollards designating the bike lane on 26th Street […]

Walking All the Streets of Southwestern Longfellow

I already remarked that the Longfellow neighborhood is diverse, encompassing residences and industry, art and history, churches and schools, food and drink, and much else—signs on utility poles, for instance. So it came as no surprise that I saw some of those same elements south of Lake Street too. But diversity being what it is, this walk […]

Walking All the Streets of Northern Longfellow

No collection of words and photos can capture an entire walk, but Minneapolis’s Longfellow neighborhood is particularly resistant to encapsulation. It features a diverse mixture of land uses: residential, commercial, industrial, institutional, and recreational. Large buildings and quirky little details. Artworks and functional structures. All very lived-in, seemingly with no two of anything alike. My […]

Walking All the Streets of Logan Park, Day 2

A distillery cocktail room, two brewery taprooms, and a “modern taqueria” made this return to Logan Park something of a bar crawl. The first installment had included tacos as well, though without an accompanying margarita. (Even for me, 10:15am would have been a bit early.) Another, more substantial point of commonality between the two walks was seeing […]

Walking All the Streets of Logan Park, Day 1

Tacos and kielbasa, 19th- and 21st-century buildings, ski fencing and an apple-bearing cross: All of these accented a sunny and mild meander through northeast Minneapolis’ Logan Park neighborhood. The neighborhood is bounded on the north by 19th Avenue and on the south by Broadway. From east to west it extends from Central Avenue to Washington […]
