    Thrasher Square, downtown Minneapolis. Reminds me of the Wainwright Building personally.
    That's Thresher as in farm implement (pre-combine). It is another Long & Kees building. It is actually two building one 6 stories, the other 7 (look really closely).

    Schiek's gentleman club.
    This is Shiek's Men 'Club'(i.e. upscale nudy bar). It was once a bank.

    (MrMN's reply: Seems a lot of these older buildings are being adopted for these types of uses. Yeesh...

    Thanks for informing me of this. I didn't know what it was and I couldn't find any documentation at the time of the photo.)

    Andrew Riverside Presbyterian Church...now gone.
    This building has unfortunatly been demolished. In the summer of 2003 the limestone rear wall collapsed and the very small parish had no money and their insurnace company bailed. It was a preservation battle but in the winter of 2003 it came down. They plan to build something on the site, but I will always give it dirty looks because I know what had been there. so sad....

    Oakwood Apartments, establishing shot. Was the former YMCA Building.
    This was once the Minneapolis YMCA. The upper floors had rooms for rent if you were down on your luck. The Y moved to a new building next door in the early 90s.

    This was designed by Long & Kees. Other buildings by the firm include the Grain Exchange, Flour Exchange, and City Hall.

    Formerly the Telephone Building, now it is the main Minneapolis Qwest Building (Northwestern Telephone Building).
    It is the Northwestern Telephone Building. It is a steel framed structure. The outside is native limestone with a base of marble.

    The architect was Hewitt and Brown. There is no retail space in the tower. It is very closed-in and forbiding, especially since 9/11. Lots of interesting details though.

    Another building I don't know (but I intend to find out).

    Another building I don't know (but I intend to find out).
    This is Dayton's (see above sign) It is now stupidly called Marshall Field's. It is owned by Target Corp. which is headquartered a few blocks down. This was an addition added on in the 1930 to the original 1904 building at 7th and Nicollet.

    Soo Line Building, one of Minneapolis' oldest and most beautiful skyscrapers.
    This is the kind of Beaux Arts box that lead to the set-back laws in big cities like New York. It casts quite a shadow.

    A vertical shot of the Medical Arts Building.
    The best place in the Metro area to get poked and prodded by a doctor, the lobby is just beautiful.

    Pence Automotive Building, Minneapolis.
    This is actually the Pence Automotive Building.

    (MrMN's reply: Thanks for the tip. I changed the caption.)

    The Minneapolis Orpheum Theater on Hennepin Ave.
    I'm comming to the cities in mid December and want to see the RC Rockettes, where can I find info on the internet?

    (MrMN's reply: Go to http://www.hennepintheatredistrict.com/eventdescription.asp?theshow=RADIOCITY02 for more on the RC Rockettes in December. You can also obtain tickets, I believe, through the links on www.hennepintheatredistrict.com as well.

    It would've been better if you E-mailed me this instead of turning it into a photo comment.)

    Churchill Apartments.
    I was suprised to see my home of 19 years on your site. This shot, at this angle, is an extremely nice one.....However, my view of the city and suburbs from the 30th floor is nothing short of spectacular.

    U.S. Bank building sparkling on a bright Minneapolis day. Pillsbury and One Financial Plaza take up the sides.
    Very impressive shot!
