|John Nicollet Mall||This picture is such a shame. Dose not capture the magnificent urban beauty of the city I call home. The thre talles buildigns are designed by Cesar Pelli, Phillip Johnson, and IM Pei. The downtown is a museum of some of the best 20th century skyscraper designs in the world.

|losangelino||Minneapolis is a wonderful city but not sure what they are trying to accomplish with this far away shot. It is a city that needs to be photographed close up. Very sense with most of their tall buildings in the two downtowns (St Paul). Absolutely breathtaking in summer.

|lancestar2||Minneapolis is such a great city in an even greater metro! So many stadiums, theaters, shopping districts (including the MOA) and entertainment and food options that are unique make it such an epic place. Winters can be harsh, but skyways and indoors malls connected via heated transit lines make it an indoor playground that nobody can even come CLOSE to creating! Minnesota WINS AGAIN! :)

|Pietrin||Beautiful skyline but the picture should have been taken closer AND preferrably during summer, 3/5|
|Dangerous Person||→||Agreed; a summertime aerial with Lake of the Isles in the foreground would have been a dazzling banner choice. A winter aerial at a weird angle is not very flattering.|
|Jussi Vatanen||Oh, Minneapolis! Anything for "Runaway train'. 5/5? You've got it.|
|soluço||too far, looks like dirt|

Probably all right-wingers trying to make some sort of sad attempt to mock a liberal bastion.

Minneapolis has quite a bit of entertainment. There are all the major sports. There are many theaters. The Twin Cities have great parks. You may say that it is cold, and that is true, but it is NOT boring.
