The guys with vests, the golf carts, and dumpsters are all probably related to the Uptown Art Fair's sanitation wing, especially since none of it was there on Thursday.

The 400 block of West Lake Street is perhaps a little outside of LynLake, but 510 W Lake Street is less than two blocks from Lyndale. Seems like a natural outward expansion of the node.

LynLake branding (logo stamped concrete) extends eastward to Grand Avenue. Pretty hard to argue these sites are not in LynLake when the logo is literally stamped into the adjacent sidewalk. Though due to all of the parking lots, car lots, vacant lots, etc. in the area, it currently does feel like the district terminates immediately at Garfield Ave.

If you want to get super technical, the city's Lyndale-Lake Special Service District actually extends all the way from Dupont to Blaisdell, though that broader definition is not the same thing as the narrower LynLake business district (logos, banners, etc.)

I am curious why the 510 W Lake development doesn't extend the entire block to Garfield.

Do you need a vacation to construct parking *under* an alley?

For both of those projects: Considering they are building underground parking, it's sort of a shame the underground parking doesn't extend under nearby surface lots. Economies of scale suggest it would be far easier to build parking under those lots now rather than with some future tiny development. OTOH, maybe that other parking isn't needed... and generally smaller projects are finer grained than large block-sized projects. But I sure hope parking doesn't hold up any future projects on those small lots, or reduce the FAR, etc.

MPLS has an honest-to-goodness saddle shop on Lake Street? I've driven that a hundred times and never noticed. Awesome.

Schatzlein's has been open for 100 plus years. Still the premier shop in the TC for all things horsey.

Western wear shops tend to be common in areas with a high Hispanic population, so I can see how they would continue to do well where they are.
