I was up in the Shingle Creek neighborhood of Minneapolis for a 7 mile or so run on Saturday.
The homes above are pretty representative of what’s in Shingle Creek. They went up in the 1950’s, making it one of the youngest communities in the city.
Cool neighborhood sign.
The southern border of Shingle Creek is made up of a train yard with grain elevators and some other industrial businesses in the Humboldt Industrial area.
Shingle Creek Elementary closed in 2007. This isn’t the first time the school has been closed. Apparently, people in the neighborhood are having fewer kids these days (and the occupancy rate of houses isn’t as high as it once was).
Right next door to the school is Shingle Creek Park, which appears to be in great shape.
The City of Minneapolis offers free WiFi hotspots in a variety of locations around town. Shingle Creek Park appears to be one of them.
Are basketball returns on hoops creating a generation of friendless, pudgy, H-O-R-S-E champions?
Shingle Creek (from the bridge at 49th St) has some human and non-human tracks on it.
The east side of Shingle Creek is home to Creekview Park & Neighborhood Center, and Floyd B Olson Middle School. Creekview boasts of having the tallest slide in the city at 30 feet.
The easternmost part of my run took me north on Humboldt Ave N, which has some of the newest homes in the city in the Humboldt Greenway development.
Working my way back west, I passed the Pilgrim Rest Missionary Baptist Church on James.
It looks like the Weichert agent didn’t get the job done on this listing. I wonder if they still think they have it, and don’t realize that their is a Coldwell Banker Burnet sign in the yard these days? That may explain why things didn’t work out for the Weichert agent. This one can be yours for $64,900.
