Re: Stadium LRT Station, Ped Bridge & Plaza (MSFA block)

Re: Miami

This applies more to the far northern suburbs of Miami and West Palm, but I was pretty shocked at the number of gated communities in places like Jupiter and Juno Beach. When I got back here I realized how different it was to see houses along public streets, after not seeing any for five days.

Re: Prince

I anticipate a mural downtown soon... I'd totally support that! Put a mural on a new development on the lot across Hennepin from the Dylan mural, with the Prince mural facing the Dylan mural. On the lot next to the Dylan mural, make a public plaza/park with references to Dylan and Price so they nev...

Re: The Commons - Downtown East Park

Re: U.S. Bank Stadium Construction Updates

I personally thought renaming the street because it is affiliated with a rival was just a lazy argument. For that reason, everyone in this forum is now dumber for having listened to it.

That's gold for advertisers whose commercial...
