Tell me Twin Cities folks, where are the best neighborhoods? Mpls or St Paul?
Where's a mass transit friendly hood?
Where to go, what to do?
So the twin cities are like a colder, friendlier, cleaner, smaller Chicago right?
Given your antisocial proclivities, the Dayton neighborhood just east of downtown St. Paul is for your hip, urban pioneering self.
Minneapolis is rather gay-friendly, no?
The Twin Cities is the best place to live in the US, but it's not for everyone.
How much money you got, OP? Do you like winter?
All neighborhoods have great mass transit in Minneapolis, OP.
Is Minneapolis/St. Paul comparable to Chicago in terms of activities/gay nightlife/culture? I've never been though I'm curious. I'm from LA but I really enjoyed Chicago.
It's not as big as Chicago r7, but generally you can find the same stuff, just less of it.
If you ever drive by Riverside Plaza and think "those are nice colorful buildings with a great view, I should check it out"... DON'T
I just googled R9's Riverside Plaza and I'm both fascinated and kind of appalled: That building seriously looks like something that belongs in a 1970's era Soviet-Communist nightmare.
It is the only architectural thing of its kind in Twin Cities, R10. A real anomaly.
I think it was built in the 1960's, wasn't it?
It's been full of the very low income, welfare types, and criminals for eons. And not a good neighborhood.
But what NEIGHBORHOODS are the best to live in?
I'm trying to do online searches for houses and not sure of anything, other than apparently Uptown is kind of hip and trendy.
Uptown (definitely not to be confused with downtown) is full of hipster snots.
Eden Prairie has the hottest boys.
You want neighborhood info? I'm here to rescue you from your confusion. The Star Tribune recently published/linked a slightly controversial "judgmental map" of Minneapolis. Have a look.
Edina is beautiful with lovely well-kept homes and has excellent city services including excellent snow removal on streets and laying down of salt/dirt in icy roads and excellent pretty parks.
(it's reputation and performance for upkeep and safety measures for Edina streets in the winter surpasses the performance of Minneapolis)
Edina is so connected to Minneapolis proper that a lot of Edina does not seem like a suburb. Mail to Edina residents can be addresses to Edina or Minneapolis.
Edina a close to everything.
I went there on a business trip and a guy I met would only kiss my balls. Didn't do much for me but he said it was too cold to lick.
