Twin Cities' National and Global Image

Minneapolis did well in this look at best commutes. ... prise-you/

Okay, we did surprisingly really well in the transit commuting measures. Unsurprisingly well for the car commuting though. But will this get daylight in the StarTribune or Pioneer Press?

That's interesting to see. I wonder why our transit commutes are so short. I'm guessing a combination of relatively compact local service and extensive express service that doesn't face much congestion on highways (and can use shoulders to pass)?

Park Rankings. DC now #1, Mpls moves to #3. St. Paul stays at #2: ... mains-no-2

"Officials with the trust say movement in the top spots shows that cities, including Washington, D.C., have been stepping up their parks game in response to the rankings. They also point out that more people now live in Minneapolis, which can push down the number of people in the city near parks and the per-capita park spending. The Metropolitan Council this week said the population had grown by more than 46,000 in the last eight years."
