Working with Claire Bastien, Jenny L was able to find the perfect home for her in Longfellow:
We wanted to use that as an excuse to talk about her new neighborhood!
Longfellow is a neighborhood in South Minneapolis bordered by the Mississippi River and the Light Rail. It’s a pretty quiet neighborhood with a city feel. It’s not far from so many amenities – some stemming from proximity to the light rail. But generally in walking distance there are restaurants, bars, a couple of small art galleries and shops to get what you need.
Here’s what TripSAvvy has to say about the neighborhood…
Longfellow is a primarily middle class, professional neighborhood. The housing available – small single family homes – attracts small families and couples. Because the neighborhood is so close to both downtowns, many people work in Downtown Minneapolis and Downtown St. Paul. The eastern parts of the neighborhood, near the river, is wealthier, and the western half, near Hiawatha Avenue and the Light Rail line, has more working class residents.
Longfellow is home to the Minnehaha Falls and the surrounding park. In the summer the area is bustling with picnickers, runners, biker and walkers. In the winter, the sturdy come daily to see the Falls slowly freeze.
