Twin Cities Aplenty

I have a crush on the Twin Cities. Great mix of old and contemporary architecture, great signage and typography, great bars and restaurants, and great neighborhoods. I try to get down there from Winnipeg at least once a year. Here some of my favorite shots from over the years.

Minneapolis and St Paul look very attractive. I´d like to visit the Twin Cities someday.

Thanks for your excellent pictures, Bryan!

Congrats and greetings from Madrid, Spain.

Nice to see the old signs in the TC shots, I have taken pics of a few of the same ones as you have. Glad to see someone else likes old neon.

Wow, great compositions and lighting. Would've been nice to see some portraits/people shots but this is great, thanks for the thread.

Nice shots! Part of the reason Twin Cities liquor stores tend to have classic '50s to '70s style sinage is that state liquor store spacing laws limit the number of stores to the point where they almost never go out of business.

Beautiful pictures! You managed to capture several pictures from the spots where I proposed, went to school, and worked.

I'm glad you got some pictures on/near the U of M. There are some great buildings there and it's a nice (and rapidly changing) area. It's too often overlooked in MSP threads.

great shots! I've always love MPS' skyline. It's my second favorite in the Midwest behind Chicago.

Thanks for posting some fantastic neon shots. I also really liked the church interiors.

This might be the best thread ever - the Twin Cities rock and so do you.
