Longfellow is a great neighborhood in Minneapolis, MN. A good word to describe this neighborhood is “easy.” No matter the mode of transportation, be it walking, biking or driving, Longfellow is really easy to travel to and from.
Just a short walk to the Mississippi River, Longfellow is an exciting neighborhood full of activities and beautiful scenery. The location might be the best part as it’s centrally located between four distinct boundaries. The Longfellow Community Council website, Longfellow.org, describes it best:
The Greater Longfellow community is defined by four unique boundaries, which also happen to be some of our community’s greatest amenities.
To the north is the Midtown Greenway, a bicycle and pedestrian trail linking the Mississippi River across South Minneapolis to Uptown and the Chain of Lakes in the west.
Our eastern boundary is the aforementioned Mississippi River. Longfellow is home to a particularly beautiful stretch of the river known as the Mississippi River Gorge.
To the south is Minnehaha Park, the location of Minnehaha Falls, which is why Longfellow is nicknamed the “Neighborhood By the Falls”.
Lastly, to the West is the Hiawatha Light Rail line, which links Longfellow to downtown Minneapolis, MSP International Airport, and the Mall of America.
