Minneapolis’s downtown looked particularly drab this morning, as it was pretty cold with not a lot of sunshine. It still wasn’t a bad morning for urban exploration, however.
It was surprising to see just how close the new Vikings stadium was to the rest of its surroundings. It sits very close to other businesses, homes, and community centers, which seems ideal for nobody.
This mural was found in the Little Earth neighborhood in Minneapolis. I had never been here before, so it was interesting to see how a Native American community gathers in an urban setting, when I had believed that most cohesive groups of Native Americans instead chose to live in more isolated groups away from the city.
This is a cool shot of the Mississippi river from the Franklin Ave Bridge. The ice has taken on several colors, giving the river a unique look that adds to the wintery aesthetic of the Twin Cities.
The dais of the US Bank Stadium provides a nice view of Commons Park and the Minneapolis skyline. This perspective also offers a way to assess the history and recent development of the area.
