Walking All the Streets of Lyndale, Day 2

On a beautiful fall day, I walked all of the Lyndale neighborhood that I had missed on my prior walk. Actually, not quite all. Construction activity closed much of Stevens Avenue even for pedestrians, so those blocks appear in neither route. One indirect consequence is that this second route isn’t a closed loop; it starts under […]

Walking All the Streets of Lyndale, Day 1

The Lyndale neighborhood is named for the Lyndale School, which in turn was named for Lyndale Avenue. The original school was immediately east of the avenue, where Painter Park now is. The avenue was in turn named for William S. King’s Lyndale Farm, but that was to the west of the avenue. The neighborhood runs east from Lyndale Avenue […]

Corcoran, Day 1

The Corcoran neighborhood in south Minneapolis’s Powderhorn community extends from Cedar Avenue South to Hiawatha Avenue South and from Lake Street East to 36th Street East. This area is trapezoidal rather than rectangular as a result of Hiawatha Avenue’s angled course, but more fundamentally as a result of the railroad tracks running on the far […]

Eastern Central: Art, Religion, and Hippy Food

On Friday I walked the western part of the Central neighborhood, and on Saturday I walked the central part, so it stands to reason that on Sunday I finished off the neighborhood with its eastern part. I started and ended my walk at the intersection of East Lake Street and Park Avenue South. (The segments […]
